Q: Do I need a clutch replacement? on 2000 Volkswagen Jetta

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I shift into 1st gear, my car drags into gear only in first and second. When I am on the freeway or finally in gear on the streets, it drives just fine.

Check fluids too. Cold fluid can make it difficult to get into gear. A good test is to put the e-brake on, start the car and put the transmission into 3rd. Slowly release the clutch and see if the car stalls. IF it it stalls right away then the clutch is working...
