Exclamation 1999 Jetta GLS Help

Hi there-
I take good care of my 1999 Jetta IV GLS. Scheduled maint., oil changes, etc. Yesterday my car stopped shifting gears. Example: I am going 60 mph but my RPM's are at 5000. This is an automatic transmission. This is my third VW and I have never had issues with a transmission. Any suggestions out there as to what the problem may be?

It could be the problem with the main valve control of your transmission, which happend to my mustang last year. The gear gets stuck in 2nd or 3rd and wouldn't shift... if that happens while you are driving, then pull over and start the engine again. The repair will cost you somewhere around $300-$600 if this is the case though...

also, there is a filter in that transmission. Clogging will cause trani to slip.

good luck
