2001 vr6

Asked by Sep 16, 2019 at 12:25 AM about the 2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLS VR6

Question type: General

I have a 2001 jetta vr6 automatic with 198000km
(I'm canadian). I had something happen yesterday
that was concerning. I took my car threw a
touchless carwash. Once I pulled out onto the
street and gave the car some gas I noticed the car
moved fine up until about 1600rpm 10mph or so.
Then it was as if my transmission went into neutral
and just reved with no movement. I came to a stop
put my car in park then back into drive and same
thing. Drove up to about 10mph or so but once the
rpm got to 1600rpm no movement. This process of
stoping....driveing...stoping....driveing went on for
about 10 minutes until I got home, I was only a few
blocks from home when this started happening.
Anyway after having my car parked for about
20min I decided to drive to the nearest macanic. I
was surprised to find tho that the car suddenly ran
fine. And has since for the past few days.

One thing I will mention is my abs & traction
control lights will come on for awile from time to
time but then go away. This leads me to believe
one of my abs speed sensors are shot. My
question is would faulty abs sensor cause a issue
like this to happen. You would think if it was a
transmission issue it would just be getting worse
and not suddenly go away. Please any advise
would be great! Thank you in advance.
