Question about 2000 Volkswagen GTI
I lost the select for reverse gear. All the other gears are fine, how can I hanlde thi problem. Tony
Auto or manual? If it is an auto it maybe that the reverse valve seals are stuffed or it could be the selector is not engaging properly or your bell maybe not getting the oil reqired. Is the car sluggish when you drive forward and labours to change gears? Check your gearbox oil level and if that is fine it could be that the pickup for the gearbox is partially or completely blocked. But if this was the case I would expect you would have no gears forward or reverse, if it is valves or valve seals the gearbox will need to be pulled apart and the valves and seals will need to be replaced. If the car is manual it could be the meshing for reverse gear is stuffed and it may also be low on oil, If it is meshing you will need the gearbox serviced by a qualified tech as the gearbox will need to come apart and the reverse meshing replaced. Considering you never mentioned a grinding noise when it won't go into reverse I suspect it is auto. So most likely valve seals, as a auto works on oil preasure in the gearbox bell house and without it it won't change gears or engage them.

Its can be both modulator valve or signs of a transmission going bad.
