My Jetta ,an automatic will not change into 4th gear at 80 klm's per hour. Is there a fix for this?

That is near the border of the shift point. You may be able to influence it with accelerator or throttle positioner adjustment. That is only 49 mph.

2001 jetta automatic transmission does not down shift or shift into overdrive

Once again, not enough information given. How many miles on unit? When you say does not downshift do you mean when you press hard on accelerator pedal, or when you slow down? When you say does not shift into overdrive do you mean high gear or torque converter does not lock? The cars are know for transmission problems and while sometimes you get lucky, usually they require a rebuild or replacement. How often do you replace the fluid and filter?

2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0t when accelerating the motor hesitates and doesnt want to go. Problem prosist more going up hills. Check engine light is on not sure if its just an o2 sensor of if the cal co

Worn spark plugs, low spark power are a couple of possibilities but the demand for fuel is great when accelerating in the mid-gears and if the fuel system can't provide an adequate supply at the correct pressure during those conditions the engine performance will go flat.

Clearly the fact the engine light is on must be investigated, beginning with a code read. When the engine light is on the management computer has detected a problem that could affect the exhaust emissions and has switched to pre-programmed values designed to get you to the nearest dealer, or get you home.

It is always best as part of the diagnostic process to carry out any basic and routine maintenance that is due plus any other checks that might reveal pending problems that might cause further unreliability.

1999 Volkswagen Jetta will not shift good

Volkswagens are known for having trouble with their transmissions, even more so in the 1st couple generations. This problem could just be your transmission sticking when getting into another gear. I recommend not pushing the car so your running at high RPMs, slowly work your way up that hill, and even try letting off the gas it may help it shift some. If you're really concerned with it you can take it somewhere to get the transmission checked, something maybe slipping or sticking it all depends and it can be a small inexpensive fix or it could be a heck of a lot, but its all up to you.
