Question about 2004 Volkswagen Jetta

2 Answers

2004 Jetta RPM's are 3500 at 120km/hr in 5th gear. Is this right?

Just bought a 2004 Jetta 2L. It's a 5 speed standard. On the highway the RPM's seem high. Is there an overdrive button somewhere? My manual is in french which doesn't help.

The 5th gear ratio in Jetta is high , so what you see it is normal. You can buy an aftermarket kit to add a 6th gear but it is kind of expensive.

My 1998 Tracker 2 door 4x4


Is this a manual or automatic transmission? When was the last time the fluid was changed? If it's a 4 speed and a 4 cylinder engine than that could be the right RPM. It could also be the overdrive is not working. Some SUVs have a overdrive override button on or near the shifter.

When does the overdirve need to be turned on


Usually the overdrive should just be left on. It should only come into play when you are at high speeds above 50mph. This is essentially your "5th Gear" and should increase fuel economy. If you leave the overdrive "OFF" on the highway your engine RPM will be higher causing the fuel economy to suffer.

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

How do I know if my car has overdrive?


Sunfires and cavaliers always reved a bit higher because of the way they are built but it is an AEOD transmission (Automatic Electronic OverDrive). Since I dont know what rpm and how fast you are going it is hard to tell if there is a probleme or not. I would compare with another similar car and decide what to do.

1994 toyota paseo: overdrive problem


I would start with replacing your tranny fluid. black is no good. your tranny should hold about 7 qts of fluid. The tranny fluid runs through your radiator to help keep it cool. If your thermostat is stuck closed your eng coolant won't circulate and the coolant will get hotter inside your radiator. thus making your tranny fluid hotter and breaking it down. After time it will turn black from getting too hot. Let your car warm up to normal operating temperture then grab your upper radiator hose. It should be very warm. If not your thermostat is stuck closed.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
