My VW 01 T1.8 vibrates when i increase speed

I got a jetta a year ego it's a five speeds. The thing is in first and second gear the car vibrates and has a hard time picking up speed. I am wandering what is it? I had the car checked but no one can tell me what is wrong with the car. The good new is that on freeway, the car runs perfect but in the city, it runs horrible. Any idea?

It sounds like either bad plugs, wires, or timing. Also check for vacuum leaks. With the engine running, wiggle all your vacuum hoses around, and listen for a hissing. Also check intake manifold bolts for tightness. Coils could also be faulty. Fuel filter could be partly clogged.

Will a speed sensor on a 2006 vw jetta make it not shift into gear


Yes they tell the computer the wheel speeds compaired to the drive shaft speed .And the computer controls the electronic shift controls inside of the transmission .
Vehicles tend to do strange things if you have a bad wheel sensor or even worse if its the one on the transmission.

My gear shift has a problem going back into 1st gear. The clutch is fine, a friend told me it could be the shift bearing need replacing. What or where could I look at to see the diagram of how the bearings...


Well the is no such thing as a shift bearing associated with a VW Jetta. Alot of VW 020 5 speeds won't let it shift into first gear until you are going under ten miles an hour or so. I don't know if it's a design feature so you won't put it in first at a high speed and over rev the motor, or what for sure. I have a Scirocco 16v and a Jetta GLI 16v, all have the same transmission as the 1993-98 Jetta, they both do the same thing. Does the shifter lever have any "play" in it? There are a few bushings for the shifter and the linkage going to the transmission, that do wear out and will cause it to be hard to shift into gear.

Thumping coming from front end all speeds.


IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

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.

Fifth gear lock-out


You should have fifth gear. There is no fifth gear lock out. Most likely it's not going into fifth gear, due to play in the shifter, or play in the linkages.
