4 to 5th gear synchronizer may be defective however considering the car is only a couple years old try bringing it to a transmission shop and ask them to check and readjust the shift linkage, if there is no adjustment there may just be a worn out or defective plastic bushing, some of these transmissions have internal shift rods and bushings that can wear prematurely. This is a job for a transmission shop the car may still be under warranty bring it to the dealer first to determine if it is under warranty then you won't have to pay as much if anything at all.

My vw Golf 4 1998 model, engine 1.8 speed sensor is dead. now temporarily i would like to know if i have to drive 120km/h, what rpm do i have to drive at using the rpm meter?

roughly if you are doing 3000rpm you will be doing approx. 100 klms/hr or 60 mph at 120km/hr you would be around 3200rpms.; Remember this will be in o/drive or 5th

Transmission slip mainly at highway speeds

This does not sound good. It is possibly your O/D direct clutch or O/D brake slipping in the transmission. Seek a couple of specialist opinions.

It sounds like it is kicking out of overdrive. Many code scanners sold by auto parts retailers will not read manufacture transmission codes. I had this issue with my Ford Contour. The o/d light would flash but I couldn't get any codes from it with an Actron scanner, which is similar to what you find in parts stores. I used a tuning device (SCT Xcal) loaded with Ford software and that pulled the codes for me. If you are getting a VSS code, that is a good place to start. The computer uses this sensor to know how fast you are going so it can select the proper gear. If it doesn't know how fast you are going, it tries to guess based on your RPM. It wouldn't surprise me if it got stuck in first gear. The exact VSS code you get would help but I think you are going to need to replace that sensor.
