4speed gearbox slipping on a 2ltr motor on a golf 1

I recently changed my vw chico 1.3 motor for a 2ltr 8 valve motor and left the 4 speed gear box in. i would like to modify the gear box so it doesnt slip when u accelerate n so that it strong enough to handle the extra power created or do i have to change to a 5 speed gearbox?

You do mean its a 5 speed with a clutch right? If so you need to purchase a heavy duty clutch which should handle it well .. that is if its a 5 speed standard shift... holler if you need more Jerry

    Yes just check on a heavy duty clutch for it .. this should be a fix for your problem .. change the clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing and you should be fine.. this will handle the transmission ok ..

How much and type of gear box oil do I have to use in my mk4 golf, 1.6 litre engine transmission( gearbox)


Mark 4 VW Golf Manual Gearbox
VW has a specific blend of gear oil for that gearbox that you need to buy from VW dealer Parts department. If you cannot get it there, you can use a 75w-90 fully synthetic automotive gear oil .

The capacity is about 2.2 quarts (US) so ensure you buy enough.

If you are changing the gear oil yourself the vehicle must be level. Completely loosen or remove the fill plug first, to ensure you will be able to refill it ,before you remove the drain plug and drain the old oil out of the box. You will need a fluid pump in order to pump the new oil into the box and you keep adding the gear oil until it begins to run out the fill opening. It is full when it stops running out the fill opening so it is important the vehicle is level when you are doing this service.

You will need a good 17 mm Allen key to remove and refit the drain and fill plugs in the gearbox.
The fill plug is on the front left side of the transmission case while the drain plug is on the bottom by the dog bone.

Toyota corolla 1993 4e efi 16 valve manual.


4 speeds were very rare in American models. Tercel, corolla's smaller counterpart came in 4speed manuals but that was to suffice the 12valve motor. Call any Toyota dealer, give them the last 8 of vin and they can verify. Happy holidays.

Speedo not working , vw golf 2001 .


I tell you for sure that is the sensor problem from gearbox.the sensor, or the wire. The fuel gauge is connected to the gearbox because is not very nice to corner and the fuel gauge go up and down. Now because the fuel gauge "didn't know" how many miles did you made, he is moving up and down. All recent cars have the same problem, and had the same problem on my girlfriend Golf 4. It was the wire. The mecanic forgot to put it back.

GEARBOX UNDER PERFORMING


Hmmm perhaps your hitting the rev limiter, or the top speed limiter in the ECM.

Check the interlock switch at the brake pedal.

Problems with gear box


Hi

If the clutch feels ok and isn't biting right at the bottom or right at the top then it sounds like its time for a recon or 2nd hand gearbox to be fitted.

I recently fitted a 2nd gearbox to a seat ibiza GTi which actually has the 2.0 Golf engine fitted to it and it wasn't too bad at all, but it is adviseable to fit a clutch kit whilst the box is off.

Very best regards

Geordie
