Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

2 Answers

Jetta transmission hello there, my friend's jetta is in my garage at the moment with the transmission entirely disconnected from the engine - the mount and mounting bracket (drivers side near the firewall) have been removed the only issue seems to be that the passenger side output flange (drive flange) is hanging up (getting caught) on the flywheel, I am unsure of what route to take from here. Is there a groove somewhere in the flywheel requiring me to turn the engine to line it up with this axle flange? or do i just need to muscle it out? If you have any insight it would be greatly appreciated, Best Regards, Jeff P.S. sorry for the run on sentence

What is the approx.cost to replace or repair a torque converter clutch solenoid


a problem torque clutch solenoid normally will not kill an engine but allow it to rev up as it disconnects the transmission from the engine
I would suggest that you have the fault codes read first to make sure that it is the problem
There is a problem in that if the transmission is disconnected ( same result in selecting drive but car will not move) the engine should not stop or if it dies to low rpms then the solenoid is not the problem but maybe the transmission control module is selecting the wrong gear.
I suggest a proper diagnosis by an accredited service centre or transmission shop specialist before sending money

I was sold a VW Jetta, that seems to be having some transmission problems. Shifting is not done effeciently. Therer are 102,000 miles on the vehicle. As I read the site, I understand that there is no area to put transmission fluid, Does that mean that I have to replace the entire transmission. How much would that cause me?

Hello,

It is on the rear of the engine area before the transmission. It has two or tree bolts that attach it to the engine or fly wheel area.

Take care.

When you install an engine, you don't "line up" gears. It's likely that either you have a worn shift fork or synchro (both inside the transmission).

Check engine light stays on


the engine check light is telling you that there is a fault with a sensor on your engine

you need to go to a garage to have the fault codes read from your computer

even though your car is running fine its a matter of time before it plays up
