Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
1999 volkswagen beetle 2.0 non-turbo. Automatic Trans E.C.V. Tranny Code. Will manually shift from first to second but in Drive it is stuck in second gear. Changed the vehicle speed sensor and that did not solve the problem. Think the car is in limp mode. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thank you

SOURCE: Road speed sensor
So the diagnostic code says the speed sensor is bad in the transmission? Make sure all the wires are tight to the transmission and in good shape. If they are you probably need to replace the sensor. If the transmission controller doesn't get the correct speed values it would cause some problems shifting. Wiring to a transmission can cause faults since the wires are subjected to heat and vibration. If you can't find any problems with the wiring or the wiring connectors it just might be the sensor is bad (stuff fails).
I do have to say that I am not sure what G-68 means. The diagnostic codes are usually five digit numbers with maybe a letter.

first check cylinder 1 , spark plug, ht leads, coil,
then clean the trottle body with carb cleaner
if that does not work replace the throttle body, comes complete, and do a basic setting on it with diagnostic machine

I just "serviced my tranny with the assistance from a VW tech. It is indeed a closed system, yes it needs to be serviced and do't let anyone tell you that changing the filter is not necessary. Whatever you do, DON'T, I repeat DO NOT put regular automatic fluid in this tranny!!! You will be buying a new tranny if you do. This tranny take a "special" European fluid that cost about $17 USD a liter. It takes three and one half liters. I would buy five just to "flush" the system.
To start, the engine and tranny must be cold, let it set over night. A lift is almost a must have. remove the tranny skid plat (four bolts) then the tranny pan (four bolts) have a catch pan ready. after allowing the fluid to drip, remove the filter and the O-ring (it will probably stay in place after you remove the filter and is a orange/red color) clean the area with a bit of brake clean. replace filter and pan, not the skid pan yet. remove the drain plug, you should have located it by now. it should take an Allen wrench. On the front of the tranny you will see a refill plug, it has a snap lock, that you will probably break. after removing the lock you can remove the plug. take a length of hose, 5/16th I think, place in the refill hole, run it up to the top of the engine and put a funnel in the tube. I found it easiest to hang the funnel with the tube from a bunge chord attached the underside of the hood. pour in three liters, this will take a little while. Yes, the plug is still out. after you have pour in three liters, start the car. leave it in park or neutral. Allow the car to come up to temperature, you know you have reached this point when the cooling fans have come on twice. Let the fans come on then go off and come on again. now the car should be high enough to see under but low enough to reach your funnel/hose that is still attached. Drain plug still out, car up to temp, height just right, now pour in more fluid. After about another half a liter, you should start to see the fluid dribbling out (into a catch pan). I pour an additional liter through mine to flush it, although this is not mandatory. leave the car running throughout this process. after you have poured at least four liters into the tranny and yes some will leak out, with car still running re-insert and tighten the drain plug. Turn the car off, replace the skid pan, remove the hose, replace the refill plug and lock (you did buy a new one when you bought the filter and oil, right?) if not just zip-tie it in place. Clean up the mess and DRIVE. congratulations, you just serviced you own tranny and saved two hundred bucks!

I had a simular sounding experience with my 99 beetle after hitting a curb. felt like it was stuck in 3rd and 4th only-had no reverse. My problem was that there was a linkage on the sifter gears broken.
