Asked by Sep 07, 2017 at 07:17 AM about the 2005 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05 jetta 2.5L, I've had it since April and just
yesterday I was pulling out of my drive way to go to DMV
and when the car got to about 15 MPH the car jerked but
jerked doesn't describe well enough it was like I slammed
on my brakes, this would happen right when it's gonna
shift to the next gear, it's like something is locking up and
not allowing it to shift this happened within 500 ft of my
drive way and we backed the Jetta down the road and in
my drive way, I'm super worried that my trans is messed
up or the fluid Is low which I'm hoping for, any help rn will
be nice, thank u

Try shifting it manually, start off in low then move the lever to 2nd at about 15 to 20 mph then 3rd at 30, then onto drive, if that helps it shift better then you might have a glitch in the transmission program or a bad gear selector switch, I would still have it checked by a transmission shop or your favorite shop. Transmissions can get expensive so get it checked soon to avoid a major hit to your pocket book.
