Okay, so i've had my car for about two years now, I have 180,000 miles on it. Recently when i've been driving it, it will not go into fourth gear at all. It sucks because I have to drive like 45 mph! When I also start out from park it seems like it kind of slips and doesn't move as quick as it should for how hard I hit the gas pedal. I want to find out if its an easy fix or a major problem? If anyone knows, i'd like to know what I can do to possibly fix the issue?

was on cruise at 70 at less than 3000 RPMs, cruise kicked out and wont reset and now car struggles to go 70

Was crusing at 70 with cruise on 2400 RPMs; cruise cut out and now car struggles past 60

My Cabrio makes the alert sound - Beep,boop,beep - Beep,boop,beep - It Sounds like La Cucaracha when you first put in the key to start it.

This morning it didn't stop.
It keeps beeping and booping but sounds like it's under water. It's annoying to say the least

A dog ran in front of my car tonight and I hit it. I went to turn around and my 99 cabrio stalled when backing into traffic and then wouldn't start. It turns over fine but acts like its not getting gas? Is their a fuel switch or something

Why would my 95 VW Cabrio stall after refuling? The last two times I refueled (the car was near empty) the car started and ran 200 - 300 yards before it stalled. This has happened in the past before and if I let the car sit for several hours it started up and ran fine. This time as I tried to get it to run the check engine light came on and the exhaust had a strange / bad smell. I let the car sit over night and it started and ran fine and the check engine light went out. Any ideas why this might be happening?
