My daughter has a 98' Jetta and has replaced the transmission at VW dealer and it failed after about two years. We had it rebuilt and it lasted a little more than and year. That was an electronic part. We rebuilt the transmission mechically the next time and it out again. $6000 total cost over four to five years. It's hard to get her out of it. Spent too much and Volkswagen could care less!!! When the transmission went out we fought with VW of Amercia as the warranty had just gone out but we had complained atleast three times before the warranty went out of date. Find a good Honda or Toyota in hsi price range! This car won't shift and this has been the problem all along. Right now it won't go in reverse. Volkwagen has problems period!

#383 of 390 3rd gear high rpm gear slip
Jan 30, 2013 (3:29 pm)
I recently purchased a 2005 Volkswagen GLI about 3 months ago and have had the engine replaced due to a timing belt giving out within the first month, after driving the car with another engine for about a week I started having this problem in my third gear.. Where I would accelerate and around 5-6k RPMS the gear slips and doesn't switch gears, doesn't even catch back into 3rd it just revs as if it's in neutral.. Can this be a problem from the timing belt giving out? Or that after driving 20 hours from Missouri back to Arizona that the engine had an oil leak? Does this have anything to do with it? Please help me as soon as you can! Thanks,

I have a 2005 jetta GLI 1.8t 5 speed auto. im having issues mainly when its the tranny is cold i can manually shift first through third fine , but when it tries to go into 4 or 5 it just seems to hit neutral. usually once the tranny warms up , a good 10 miles or so(and the weather is not super cold) i can usually start getting 4 and 5th back. when i have the gears 4 and 5 working they run perfectly fine . the tranny shop briefly looked at it and wants to tell me i need a whole new tranny ..anyone run into this?

1st to 2nd gear is fine, but when shifting to 3rd, it slips completely as if its in neutral. If I shut the car off and let it cool down, problem goes away. Most days there is no issue, only when I drive lots at short distances (engine get to warm?) Dealer found just one code when scanning it: 00652 - Gear Monitoring: Implausible Signal. This could mean many issues.
Any help would be great!

Is your car an automatic?
If it is then have a shop check your transmission. Sounds like there's a problem with the transmission.
More than likely it doesn't have to do with the timing belt or oil leak.
Here's some info about oil leaks in case you're interested in knowing: https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/oil-fluid-leak-inspection

I have the exact same problem with my 2003 Jetta wagon TDI. Did you ever find out what it was? I would appreciate any feed back. No technician I've talked to seems to have a clue what it could be.

The issue was a faulty TCM (transmission control module) and the transmission wiring harness.
The error code causes the initiation of "limp mode" in the transmission. This restricts the transmission to 3rd gear to prevent damage until issue is resolved.

I am having the same problem now with my TDi. It started back in Jan. 2013. Did anyone ever find a fix for you? I'm tired of not having a ride.
