My Vw at low revs under load in 4th 5th and 6th have a Jerk when I floor it. If anyone can assist? Thanks


What do you mean by low revs?

Under 1.5k rpm, the engine will not be generating enough torque in those gears.

Gear changes should occur between 2.5k and 3k rpm for a smoother transition.

Ssanyong Kryon auto, the gears jump to neutral between fourth and fifth then engage with a bump?


Not sure, but 5th may be a lock up torque converter rather than another "real" gear. If so, solenoid for this may be bad, or torque converter may be bad. Have you changed the trans fluid and filter?

Hi all I own a 2006 RA Rodeo 3.6Ltr petrol dual cab it is a little heavy on fuel that's fine but when you put it into 5 gear it just drinks fuel nearly 1/4 tank to go 15-20 klms. Any ideas greatly app


The only thing that comes to mind is that in 5th, the rpms may be so low that you are running on low speed potion of ignition module, getting weak spark and not burning fuel properly. This could be true in all gears at low rpms, but you would not notice it as much because you probably keep the revs up more in lower gears. Just a thought.

VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle. once clutch is pressed sound goes. car drives fine with no noise in 1st-4th gears. unable to select 5th gear.. just grinds and wont engage. VW Golf...


No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

5th gear with 1996 VW Polo


hi mandy
im dave
if it only revs when you put it in 5th gear then it is not in fifth gear. it may look like it but it is not. try moving the gear selector from fourth into neutral releasing the clutch fully then applying the clutch and initiating fifth gear. if that does not work try placing it into one of the other gears first without releasing the clutch and then selecting fifth.
you should be fine driving in four gears as long as you dont travel on the audobahn or at speeds like your on the audobahn. Just watch your redline. try not to go past it. i think it is actually better for your car to drive at higher revolutions than lower as it cleans out your combustion chamber of carbon. on the other hand it is ******* your engine to drive in the red line constantly.
but 3000 rpm in 4th gear probably has you driving 130km/hr (82mph) which should be sufficient and your redline probably does not start until somewhere between 4-5k
