Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
I have a 2000 bug with just the 2.0 automatic engine in it and it only has 84k miles on it...I have had no problems at all with it, sometimes it would **** a lil when it would switch gears and now it wont shift up gears at all. For some reason its not catching or noticing that it needs to go into a higher gear so i have to drive around going no faster then 40. It runs great, goes in reverse, stops and starts just fine, it will switch into 3rd and 1st but just wont gear up...does anyone have any advice on what it could be?
Firstly check the gearbox oil, secondly check the slave cylinder ensure there is no leaks etc, sometimes the leak will only dampen the area you may not see pools of fluid on the floor.
It could have air in the system and just need bleeding through, ifits not this then it could be the torque converter on the gearbox.
Check the cheapest parts first, most likely it will be the slave cylibder.
Hope this helps
