Why is my car having trouble shifting gears, gets stuck changing gears, has a hot smell after it has been running for a while,has a running a noise after its been turned off for a while


Sounds like you need oil in your transmission, low pressure light for hydraulics. Get it checked right away or it could seize up.
Make sure all your fluids are checked both for levels and leaks.
Your brakes may need looking at too.

My 2001 vw jetta won't shift to second gear


run fault codes and look for a problem in the transmission. Check oil and coolant level as the light is a warning for both the engine and gear box and the failure to shift gears may be that the CPU has locked the vehicle in limp mode to restrict damage in the drive train units.

Gear shift stays in park and abs esp and asr lights on


1) try to use the self diagnose.
2) place ignition swtuch in the start position, the lights coming on
3) engine starts, the brake light sould turn off inmediately. the ABS ligth will illuminate for aprox 6 seconds.
4) test drive the vehicle at speed above 20mph for a few minutes. during the test the both test lights should remain off, if any one of the warninign light utron, take note of the condition.
5) stop the vechicle using the braking pressure.both light should remain offf during the stopping procedure.
60 place the gear selector in to PARK, and observe the warning lights, they should both be off.
God bless you

Shifter goes through gears when off, but once started it will not go into gear. why might this be?


This indicates your clutch needs adjustment or the pressure plate is worn out. If the clutch will not disengage with the engine turning the gears inside the trans continue to turn so you can not shift gears. If you are driving you can shift when you rev the engine to match internal gear speed. You can shift with out the clutch up shift and down shift. One thing to look for is the clutch oil reservoir check to see if she has enough oil.

Vave gear /electrics kit to be replaced as recommended by authorised dealer. Car has run 69,000 kms. in India.Problem was gears not changing. Oil was changed but car on being driven remained in limp mode....


if your talking about the valve body and electrical shift plate for the transmission then yes those components can cause the vehicle to go into limp home mode and not let the vehicle shift gears. Generally the valve body is not able to be repaired just replaced. same goes for the electrical shift place.
