My car is a 5 speed and wont go into reverse or 5th gear


check your clutch fluid. this has a plastic resorvoir under the bonnet. refill as required.
if its not that, chances are your gearbox has been damaged, and will need replacing.

Jumps when I pull away first thing in the morning, no problem when warm (1999 Jetta GL)


the same thing happend to my 1996 jetta trek. when u put it in reverse to start off anywhere its perfectly fine. but when u put it into drive it stalls for a few seconds than jumps.
The transmission is going to go out on you anyday.
mine blew on me about a month when this started happening to me.
i was driving and the car just randomly went into neutral, tried all the gears and all i had was reverse.
BLOWN!

took it to 2 different places to get it fixed, 1st place asked $3500, 2nd place asked $2500.
too much money so we had a family friend put a rebuilt tranny in for $1600.
