I have the same problem with my 2001 volkswagen cabrio, but I know the solution.
You need a new clutch, or it will continue to slip.
If you cannot afford the clutch. You can "baby" the clutch by easing the clutch out, and eventually it will catch. (It should catch in a second or two.)

My 2000 Nissan Xterra will not go into 3rd 4th or 5th gear


In the installation of a new clutch in most instances it is necessary to remove the gear lever from inside the vehicle . Check that you have the end of the gear lever actually situated in the groove that lines up all the shift rails as you may have placed the end outside the groove and can move only one rail. You have given no indication of a clutch problem at this stage so I am sure that is where the problem will be.

Symptoms are those of a clutch up for replacement. There's a thin layer of clutch plate left before the rivets holding the plates hit the metal clutch surface. The effects you describe are quite normal.

There are 2 flavors of clutch replacement - new and refurbished. Both usually can be obtained through a WV dealer. The difference is usually warranty and price.

You probably need to rebuild the transmission, and look for gears that have been damaged, synchronizers that have failed, and worn parts in general.
The clutch has no bearing on whether the tranny slips out of gear.

Clutch Sometimes Slipping in 4th and 5th gears!


Hi Jackiaria

Unfortunately you have a hydraulic clutch, which is self adjusting on your car.

The problem you are experiencing is the excessive wear to your clutch, or oil contamination on the clutch plate.

Both these problems can only be fully diagnosed once the gearbox is removed and the clutch is inspected.
There is also a possibility of excessive wear, or scoring, on the flywheel surface, the longer you drive the vehicle with a slipping clutch, possibly requiring the flywheel to be skimmed.

Shop around for a best price, and a trustworthy garage !

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be Nice....Thanks.....John.
