95 VW won’t shift into 1st, 2nd, 5th

Asked by Jun 20, 2018 at 12:51 PM about the 1995 Volkswagen GTI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 95 VW GTI VR6 5 speed manual all of a sudden will
only shift into 3rd and 4th and I’m not sure what’s wrong
with it and how to fix it. Could someone tell me what’s
wrong and how to fix it.

1 Answer


Sounds like an internal issue to the transmission, to fix you bring it to a local trans shop for repair.
