There is a tech bulletin issued on this problem. Call the dealer service department and tell them the Vin number to see if they have had it serviced for this.

SOURCE: 2000 VW Jetta squealing when shifting from 2-3rd and hard shift down when going up hill

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

I have a 2002 avalanche with 197,000km it does not shift into second gear. I was told to disconnect the negative cable then hook up will erase codes. It did work but is happening again. Also was told


I suggest running the fault codes to determine the exact reason for this . All disconnecting the cable did was an attempt to reset the codes but there was no attempt to determine what the fault was so naturally the problem will reoccur .

Just had battery replaced and now right side windows won't roll down.


Remove the battery negative cable for 5 minutes to reset the body control module and see if that corrects the problem. This can be a coincidence you know.

My 1993 Gmc Sierra 2500 automatic first gear shifts hard also from park to drive others gears are smooth i have overdrive


The gear shift lever indicators tell you what gear you have an automatic transmission in on your vehicle. The shift solenoid tells the transmission when to shift gears and what gear to shift into. Newer model automatic transmissions have electronic shift solenoids that are activated and change gears based on the speed the vehicle is traveling. Troubleshooting either one of these transmission components is relatively easy if you know a little about automobile mechanics. With the right tools, you can determine whether the transmission shift solenoid is having a problem. Gear shift indicator problems can be determined simply by moving the gears into their designated position.
Transmission Shift Solenoid
  • 1 Raise each corner of the vehicle up with the car jack and place jack stands under the frame. Make sure the car is raised high enough so you can work under the car freely.
  • 2 Slide the drain pan under the transmission fluid drain plug. Remove the drain plug with a ratchet and socket, and let all the fluid drain out of the transmission. Remove the transmission pan bolts with a ratchet and socket. Pull the pan away from the bottom of the transmission, revealing the transmission shift solenoid.
  • 3 Wipe off the shift solenoid with a shop towel. Disconnect one of the two plugs that attaches to the shift solenoid. Turn the knob on the volt meter to the ohms setting, so resistance can be measured. Set the volt meter on 200.
  • 4 Take the black lead of the volt meter and touch the negative battery terminal wire. Take the red lead of volt meter and slide the tip into the terminal plug you just disconnected from the shift solenoid. Look at the reading you get on the digital display of your volt meter. Determine if the reading is between 12 and 25. Readings below 12 or above 25 tell you that the shift solenoid is not working. Reattach the plug to the shift solenoid and pull the second plug attached to the solenoid. Perform the same procedures on this plug wire. Replace the transmission shift solenoid after determining it is bad.
Gear Shift Indicator
  • 1 Move the gear shift into the desired gear. Look at the gear labels and the arrow, or other indicator, to see if the gear shift indicator lines up with the selected gear.
  • 2 Move the gear lever to another gear and look to see if the indicator lines up with the selected gear. Misalignment of the arrow will tell you if there is a problem. Moving the gear shift to "neutral" but having the indicator show the transmission is in "drive" tells you the gear shift indicator is not working properly.
  • 3 Try each gear position to determine how much misalignment is in the indicator. Slide under the car and check for a loose gear shift cable. Check all the gear shift cable connections to ensure they are all tight and are not missing. Tighten any loose gear shift cable clamps or bolts. Replace the gear shift cable if you find that this is causing the misalignment with the gear shift indicator.

I was driving the Chevy Cavalier. A 1998. I was in first gear until about 3500 rpm, and when i went to put it into second, it slipped down into fourth gear. Now it is stuck in fourth gear, and wont go...


Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

Transmission wont shift to second gear


The vacume hose on the vacume modulater on the trans mission is nt hooked to full engine vacume or the engine isn't making vacume.The governer will make the trans shift to second anyway at redline but it's preety hard on an old car to redline it just to find out/ It's possible that youv'e got the shift detent cable that hooks to the carb set too tight or it's stuck as if it's floored. with the cable disconnected it should shift out al the way real early as long as thirs vacume on the modulater. Gas mileage freaks that drive around slowly unhook th shift cale so the trans shifts into high gear real early. Not much for passing and acceleration but they get a little bit better gas mileage.

2005 tiberon gt auto shifts hard from 2nd to third when excelerating from a stop and shifter in D. no other shift problems up or down.


Try this first. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery. Touch/connect the two cables together for 60 seconds. Reconnect the battery cables to the battery. Drive the car -- see if this solves the problem.

Trans is punching


the car has a computer that learns it's shift pattern.disconnect the battery for a while and it should enable it to relearn shift patterns.

Transmission shifts hard ,overdrive light flashes


I had a similar problem which turned out to be caused by a leaking vacuum line.
