Check first the fluid if it needs replacing or you may need to add more. Dirt in the fluid may be a sign that the valve for the 3rd gear may be dirty or full of debris. If one gear is dirty normally the next gears are affected.

check ur engine brackets, one of them might be giving u problems (its one long shot to be honest), but most likely the synchronizer cone on that gear is causing the problem, they wear on the inside and because of simple vibration they "let go" ur gear... u need to open the gearbox and have them check, i am assuming that ur gearbox is manual...

1998 volkswagen jetta won't go into gear


Sounds like the clutch cable or spring has gone, but seeing as it went gradually probably the spring. It basically means that the clutch plate isn't lifting from against the big end, the grinding noise being the fact that you're forcing the car in to gear when the input shaft is still spinning. If you don't know how to take the gearbox off yourself then take it to a dealer, the way to get it to drive for now would have to be to start the car in first, or have someone bump it, the carefully work your way in to third by matching the gears before pushing the gearstick in. This is quite difficult and can do damage to your gearbox so be careful if you do this, otherwise get it towed.

You may have a stripped synchro that is making it difficult. Run the car up to speed in second, fairly high RPM, then clutch in and push for third, and just hold the lever against whatever is keeping you out of third gear. See if, as the RPM fall, you are able to slot the lever in. If you're only having trouble with third, then you may well have damage to that gear. If you have trouble in multiple gears, it may just be a fluid issue. You could try draining the old transmission fluid and putting new stuff in and see if it helps.
