Maybe the linkage for the 5 speed is bad.

Cant find where to add trans fluid on 97 jetta 5 speed


A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.

If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.

I have a 1998 vw jetta tdi 5spd, it is getting hard to shift have to hold clutch to floor and still is rough to shift. Can it be adjusted or is there something I should be checking?


Jetta TDI manual from 1998 was always going with 5 gear speed and with hudraulic clutch. First off all make shure that you don't have any air in this hydraulic. After you are shure that pushing pedal is effective you may think about changing your clutch set. Depending what engine do you have 1Z,ALH or AFN there're diferent clucthes and prices

1998 vw jetta clutch


hi from uk if as you say clutch slips in high gear ie engine revs are not compared to speed you should be doing ? then i am afraid that considering age and probable high milage of car the cars clutch is on its last legs and rqs renew not a difficult or long job to do on jetta but for the moment try not to drive car too much as it will/may fail completely no drive! then you will incurre breakdown/recovery charge ? a stich in time ? saves nine ? hope this helps you?
