Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
Just now, I was driving, turned a corner, from neutral, I shifted into second as I was going to fast for 1st....but not fast really at all! I shifted, disengaged the clutch and felt a sputtering effect...no sound, just as if I was going up a high grade in 5th gear...that was the feeling...but no sound or grinding and it was quick, not jerky or slow. I engaged the clutch, brought it back to neutral and back to second again to round another corner to my house...it was ok then. I have in the past week been shifting into 2nd or 3rd and lost a fraction of a second in the power but no feeling like I just had. I recently had the timing belt changed and the pulleys...could it be the timing belt or is my tranny going out? OR maybe something different???
Sounds like your Clutch is not disengaging properly. Do a test.
Find a Steep hill and try clutch control, if your Clutch is high, which means you are bringing your foot up more than usual, then your Clutch cable or plates could be worn. Suggest you get someone to check it out for you, but could be expensive to replace.
