My 2002 Jetta TDI will not always go into reverse. When this happens I put it in 1st then back to reverse and many times it goes right in reverse. It happens whether it is cold or warmed.

Jetta TDI manual from 1998 was always going with 5 gear speed and with hudraulic clutch. First off all make shure that you don't have any air in this hydraulic. After you are shure that pushing pedal is effective you may think about changing your clutch set. Depending what engine do you have 1Z,ALH or AFN there're diferent clucthes and prices

is this going from park?? if so, it could be the module inside the cover where the shifter is...this is the piece that tells the shifter when the brake is pressed and allows it to shift.... check that out and let me know if u have anything else....

Hi,my chevrolet trial blazer 2004 rpm is not going above 3000 rpm while in park or neutral and my gear is not shifting smoothly.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Few things can cause this issue. It can be a disconnected vacuum hose somewhere so please have a good look at it. It can be a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor) too. If the TPS is faulty the throttle response tends to fail so you will need to have it replaced. Regarding the shifting, I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the shifting tends to be rough and may shift only on high rpm.

Once the fluid is replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable. Please have the following be checked to resolve the issue.

Have a good one and thank you for using FixYa!

Shifting gears

I'll assume you mean 6000 rpm's. No that is not normal. Should shift smoothly anytime after 2700 rpm's.

Unless you have a check engine light on or other electrical warning for the transmission chances are the transmission is failing and needs an overhaul.
