Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

1995 VW Jetta Automatic transmission shifts fine upon initial take-off from stand-still. Once tranny has shifted up into 4th, and then back down into 3rd, (as it should normally) it will not shift back into 4th. If I turn car off and immediately turn back on, it will "reset" transmission and shift up into 4th fine again but once it downshifts to 3rd, it will not go back up, unless I "reset" it again. I had all codes fixed and cleared, but i was thinking (because of the "reset" ability) it could be possibly the transmission computer? What do you think? Thanks

I would suspect you are correct and it is an electrical problem with the electronics in the transmission. I would recommend you have this looked into by a professional. Ignoring it my end up causing more expensive problems.

The tranny's are notorious for having "small" problems before they actually let go. However, there is a sensor on the transmission that tells it when to shift as well as a couple of air and cooling sensors. Try having those tested/changed and see if that helps. If not, you may be looking at a new transmission

Shop for a rebuilt transmission, or get an estimate from AAMCO for a rebuild job, but it won't be cheap. Get at least 3 estimates before you decide how to proceed. Good luck.
