Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

My reverse has been working off and on for a couple of months, Now last nite, I put my car in park and the car kept moving forward. When i look at my instrument panel, it shows 2nd gear and I cant get the shifter to engage in any of the gears. Obviously my car won't start now because its in 2nd gear. Please help!!!!

How do I fix the transmission problem? The car is moving forward at neutral, drive and low gear, and switching to parking mode at reverse and parking. The car is not backing up at all.


Transmission may now be toast since you continued to drive it when maybe low on fluid or torque converter had failed. How long since last fluid and filter change? Ever?

I have all gears but reverse and when in park and neutral and gas pedal is pressed the car moves forward, why?


well could be two things. either your transmission has crapped out on you. or you have a shifter linkage issue. which means when the car is in park its not really in park. try this. move the shifter and see if the car moves in a different gear then what it says it is in . so if it moves in neutral it could be drive and reverse is neutral. if it does not reverse at all. time for a new trany is my guess.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Transmission issue w/Ford Taurus?


Sorry to tell you this. You have an AXOD/AX4N Transmission and it is going bad on you. Soon, it is going to strand you on the road.

This Transmission is a Money Maker for the Mechanics and Transmission shops around the world.

Some people will put Lucas into their transmissions to extend the life of the Transmission but there are people who do that and cause it do DIE!!!! and I mean Immediately.

I am sorry to give you the bad news but at least it is Honest...

T700 in my camro wont go into reverse or netraul .Car hasnt been move for about 1 month was fine last time in drove it .It has all forward gears even where park and netraul are any help would good thanks


sounds to me like the shift linkage came loose at the tranny end. On the driverside of the tranny there is a cable hooked the side of the tranny. At the end of the cable there should be a slot that a bolt goes through and attaches to a little arm on the tranny. Loosen the bolt put the gearshifter in park then push that arm as far forward as you can you might have to push hard or pry it forward. Then tighten the bolt down. then try it out and see how it works. You just adjusted your shift linkage. Let me no if that worked or not. Goodluck, Kyle
