Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Transmission Acting Up

I have 1997 Jetta that seems to have a transmission problem. Every time you lift your foot off the accelerator and press again it pulls back and even jerks or seems to switch to a lower gear especially when driving in second or third gear. Trasnmission is manual.

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive


Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

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?

I have an 1997 4 door Honda Accord SE, auto transmission, that is acting up on me. It is hard to explain but as I am accelerating, it seems to be having a hard time revving up and the harder I accelerate...


Check your fire(spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor button) and air filter, but you might also consider replacing the fuel filter.

Hey guys, trying to check tranny fluid in 98 jetta my daughters just picked up


Drive the Jetta for ten minutes or so to warm up the transmission fluid.
Step 2Drive the Jetta into the work area and place your foot on the brake. Shift the shifter into each gear and hold it there for 3 to 4 seconds. Return the shifter back to drive.
Step 3With the engine running, lift the Jetta on a four-post side-by lift or a drive-on lift. The vehicle must be level when elevated to get a proper fluid level reading.
Step 4Locate the transmission. On the low right hand side (passenger side) of the transmission is a small service plug. Place a drain bucket strategically beneath the plug and remove it with a hand wrench. A small amount of transmission fluid should trickle out indicating that the fluid level is okay. VW recommends during these maintenance service interval checks to test the temperature of the transmission fluid using a scan tool. VW also recommends replacing the transmission check plug each time it is removed.
Step 5If any transmission fluid is needed to be added, locate and remove the fill plug that is on the front left upper corner by the oil pan. Add a little bit of fluid at a time through this portal while watching the check level portal and as soon as it begins to trickle out from that outlet, the transmission fluid level is full.

Hi everyone! Transmission question. I have a


You going to have to service the transmission more frequently like every 15,000 miles or every 6 months and add a remote transmission oil filter. In the mean time bring the CVR to a transmission shop and have the transmission serviced and have them to a transmission line pressure test. This will give an indication if there is a problem with the Transmission oil pump, Boost valve, and the EPC valve. All should be covered under the warranty, unless you have put that much miles on the CRV already. And yes letting your foot of the brakes before you let it go into gear will shorten your transmission's life. Good luck and keep me posted.
