1997 Volkswagen Other Repair Question
HARD SHIFTING 1997 JETTA GT
Recently, it started doing the same thing going from a stop, in drive, to first gear.
The engine revs to about 40 rpm before catching.
With previous cars I've owned, I would have flushed the transmission. Apparently you can't do this on my Jetta, it is a "sealed system". According to the dealership, a flush is very rarely done. Personally, I don't get it. Sealed system or not, the fluid must get dirty.
I am unsure of what to do. A friend suggested having the computer timing adjusted? If anyone has a clue about what's going on, please help me!
You need to have the tranny fluid/filter changed, not flushed. Flushing the tranny fluid is different than simply changing it and can not be performed nor is it recommended on all vehicles.

I have similar problem and I change the speed sensor of the transmission and the problem was gone, the engine light never was on .
