Its a vr6 and I can't tell if its got a timing chain or timing belt. I have been told the knocking sound is the timing chain guide broke but I can't tell where it's located.

When i let off the gas to switch gears it knocks under my feet, if i keep the speed up it stops. Is it my cv shaft or could it be something else?

When i go 60 mph the rpm guage goes to 4000 rpm and stays there what's the problem please help asap

will not go in reverse it is a 5 speed how much is it to fix it and do you have to ripe apart the tranny ? text me the answer at 570 874 9423

someone is selling they said everything is good condition but it just stop working

I have a 99 Jetta with a 2.0 engine. I recently had a new clutch installed, but now my car doesn't shift correctly. It shifts amazing when the car isn't running (regardless if I press the clutch in). When I shift it into first (while its off) then turn the car on, it lurches forwar a little bit. After the car is on and I stop I cant shift into first at all. Its hard to shift into all the gears and it'll grind if I push too hard. The clutch engages almost immediately after I start to release my foot. While its in gear and its running (when I don't have to shift) it drives good. As I shift into a different gear it feels chunky and it takes at least 5 seconds to shift into a different gear.

When should the air bags go off how much impact does the car have hit for them to go off

Car starts fine, engine runs a little rough, when driving the transmission does not shift into the higher gears. We replaced the shift solenoids an that did not solve the problem. How can I find out if this car has a transmission control module? Is there anything else that could cause this?
