Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Open Question

Volkswagen Jetta 2000 automatic, shifting problem at 3rd gear

The car seems to shift fine from 1st to 2nd gear. At what would be 3rd gear it doesn't shift and the rpm goes up to about 4000 and then when it finally does shift, the car is now going at a speed of about 50mph. Car was taken in the speed sensor was replace (due to error code being thrown) the transmission was taken apart and nothing was found. Now they think it is the transmission modulator. Mechanic says they have seen that the software needed to be updated, but when the dealership was asked they said there were no known software updates needed. How or what could be wrong with my car.

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.

If it wont shift at all, its very likely computer related. Its unlikely it could be vacuum because of its age. Their is a computer for newer trans and sometimes some of the components can fail. I once bought an accord that lost 2nd and 3rd due to its computer, shifted great after i hit the junk yard. If it shifts hard though, solenoids and valve body gasket.

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
