Would start by checking the transmission fluid level which is checked from under the vehicle when the vehicle is cold.

U mean on the shifter irself inside the car?? If so, u just unscrew it, but won't solve ur problem at all.

Instead replace the 2 plastic link kits located on top of the tranny. They are about 3 inches long and they can be popped off with a little prying. Costs about 30 bucks for the pair, even less.

Also for the shifter itself it can be adjusted by the dealer but must be done on a lift. Go to the dealer if the 2 linkages are replaced and still doesn't shift properly.

Check the motor mounts. They might be worn or loose which can cause vibration felt when the engine is reved up or running at higher rpms than at idle.

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

1991 manual jetta won't shift into 5th gear. can I replace the linkage myself or should I have a mechanic do it?


Unless you are familiar with working on VW's and have the Bentley service manual for your Jetta, it's probably best to let a VW mechanic or someone who is familiar with them to work on this problem. Special tools are required to properly adjust the shifting cables.
The problem may not be the linkage but a worn shifter. You will still need the service manual to do this right. You can get it at BentleyPublishers.com. Hope this helps.
