Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta
It is 3000 rpm's. If you look at your tachometer closely it will indicate the numbers you are reading are x1000. Check your transmission fluid. Always check when warmed up and running. It's a good idea to have your automatic transmission serviced with a new filter & fluid and the cooler flushed.

Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck

Here is the procedure, you will need special equipment and fluid.
Transmission must not be in emergency running mode. Transmission should be in PARK. Transmission fluid temperature must not be more than 80° F (30° C) at the beginning of check. Open the check level plug on the bottom of the transmission pan. Add fluid through the fill plug as needed until it drips from the check level plug. Some fill caps can be easily twisted off. Others will be broken when removed and must be replaced.

as per vw, you need to check transmission oil level., not an easy thing to do. if transmission oil level ok (no dipstick on these by the way). it is a mecahnical fault.

On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.

you will need the transmission repaired, this is a common problem, sorry that it happened to you after your warranty. they may still fix it under warrenty as this is a major problem, with this trans.
if you are not to far over warranty they may play with numbers to get you covered.
other wise it is about $2300+ repair.
