Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I've had this car for over 3 years; had 89000 miles in 2005 when i bought it & now just passed 202000 miles! automatic, few problems, mostly highway miles, very well maintained...
noticed today when driving home on the interstate (usually about 75-80mph), that the rpm gauge which is about 2800 - 3000 rpm's at those speeds, was moving around a lot even when i was on flat ground & maintaining same speed... it was registering higher rpm's than normal & the needle seemed to fluctuate more than normal; didn't seem to be the tranny stuck in 3rd or anything??
wondering if it's a gauge problem, a sensor problem, tranny problem, turbo problem or something else???
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
