This will probably need done by Service center. They decided not to put a dipstick in the transmission, instead there is a small yellow plastic cap that I believe they need to check with an instrument.

2 plugs, fill and oil level. Remove the red plug top side trans, remove the lower plug. fill with correct fluid per manual until the fluid just starts coming out of the lower plug hole. replace plugs, its full. Do this on level ground too.

There is no transmission fluid dipstick, this is a so called "sealed" transmission. Contact the dealer for assistance in fluid level checks but unless you see transmission fluid on the ground which is red you don't need to have it checked.
ever had the trans serviced? could need a new filter and fluid change. the fluid breaks down after a while and the filter gets dirty causing the fluid to heat up from the fact it cant flow as well to the cooler
If your tranny has gone into limp mode, it is for a reason, something went bad in there and it won't go over x amount of rpms or speed to save itself from further damage. You probably lost a shift solenoid, or a ground, or it may just be low on fluid. You might end up in the tranny shop with a $1200 bill. Check it out.
If your Jetta is a manual transmission, the clutch disc facing is probably gone. If it is an automatic, there are a number of things to check. Is transmission full of fluid? Does fluid smell burnt? Is there metal inside the oil pan? Hope this helps and rate me high.
