SOURCE: VW Jetta 2004 wont shift gears after running fine for some time

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

SOURCE: 1996 Saturn auto trans will not shift into 4th

Check your transmission fluid. If it is bright almost pinkish-red then it is not the transmission. If it is dark red or brown then you need to either get a flush done or replace your transmission depending on the severity.

Should you drive in overdrive when driving under 50?


You put ANY vehicle in D-- that is 4th or 5th gear &
LEAVE IT THERE

You have an automatic-- why would you want to shift it ?

You use the gear next to overdrive, you increase your rpm
& wear out the motor sooner ,over heat the trans & forget
shift back to D

Vw jetta won t start and its stuck in third gear


Check with VW there is a recall on the transmission shift body. The pressure control valve is sticking. Assuming you have a automatic trans. the starting problem can and maybe do to a sticking valve also.

Transmission not shifting into 4th gear


Dirty Shift Solenoids

Have to Google your trans unit or model
& see what the inside looks like, as far as
shift control items go

It may not be going into converter lock-up
either,that is some high rpm that will overheat it
also & ruin it for good

Shop for a rebuilt transmission, or get an estimate from AAMCO for a rebuild job, but it won't be cheap. Get at least 3 estimates before you decide how to proceed. Good luck.
