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.

What should the rpm be at in a 1998 iszue rodeo at 70 it is a 5 speed 4x4


It is impossible to calculate with out knowing the over drive ratio (5th gear) and the diff ratio and tire size but with most vehicle with 5 speed boxes it should be in the 3000 to 3500 rpms range
The average vehicle at 74 miles/hr or 120 k/h runs around 3200 rpms
it doesn't matter how many cylinders or if 4x4 or make of vehicle , the rpms is tied to the ratio of the gear and the diff and the circumference of the tires
Sorry , it cannot be more exact than that

Revs seem higher than normal in my 2005 Suzuki Swift Sport (3.3rpm in 5th @ 100km/hr) - is this normal? I also have a really high fuel consumption rate


2 issues,
1: MPG, you failed to say MPG, 15mpg? or 39? is 39 low?
what MPG? you never said it?

2: rpm cruise. (what drive line, A/T M/T ?) what tranny?
first google hit , is this it? this yours?
engine: 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol, 75 kW/133 Nm
Transmissions: 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, FWD

3300 RPM in 5th and 100km
if you wish to now what is normal, find the final drive ratio, listed in the FSM. Id say this is normal. typical of tiny engines, with low torque.at lower RPMs.

if you have the A/T and IF the trannywere to slip, the TCM will infact throw DTC codes, telling you it did.
IS IT? (scan tools show you this fact as might that glowing CEL lamp on the dash, on driving.

RPM
my 1.6L spins 3000 RPM , at below tranny options valve counts.
54/59mph (104km/hr = 59) 5sp MT.
64.6 4sp A/T (goes fastest due to more aggressive OD + axle ratio is lower.)
56/.53 2sp A/T
see how drive line effects RPM? so will your cars options.

I have a 1991 Ford f150 with the 4.9 engine and 5-speed manual transmission. But the 5th gear only says overdrive. Can i drive in 4th gear at highway speeds without shifting to 5th?


Sure you can, It just makes the engine work a little harder. As long as your not running down the road at 3000 rpm's all the time, it will be fine

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms

When driving in 5th gear should the RPMs run at 3000 RMPS. Mine is a 4 cly 5 speed


You don't provide much information to go on (type of vehicle, type of engine, 2wd or 4wd, etc.) RPM is always going to be based on the speed you're traveling with a standard transmission. My 4 cyl 5 speed Nissan pickup in 5th gear runs at 3000 RPM at about 75mph.

VW golf1citi 1.4i kick out gear no.5 when I drive fast .why?


4 to 5th gear synchronizer may be defective however considering the car is only a couple years old try bringing it to a transmission shop and ask them to check and readjust the shift linkage, if there is no adjustment there may just be a worn out or defective plastic bushing, some of these transmissions have internal shift rods and bushings that can wear prematurely. This is a job for a transmission shop the car may still be under warranty bring it to the dealer first to determine if it is under warranty then you won't have to pay as much if anything at all.

4000 rpm at 70 miles per hour


You should have another gear "5th" at 70mph your tacho should read about 2500 rpm.
Make sure you don't need to depress something or push the gear stick against a spring to select 5th.
Is there a gear layout on top of the gearstick knob, do you have 5th gear on there?
The highest gear ratio is a little over 1 to 1 so at 70 mph you would expect 3500 rpm, but, it is a little over 1 to 1 so it will be closer to 2500rpm.
