4th gear isn't working in my 86 cabrio. It will shift into 4th but when I hit the has the rpms just go up and the car

Sounds like a "stripped" gear, they are nylon and do not take too well to grinding. find a good VW mechanic, do NOT go to a VW dealer, find a used tranny in a quality junk yard. Rebuilds are available on line. Bear
