Asked by Oct 17, 2015 at 10:15 AM about the 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

is taking a while to get out of first gear but
only has one hundred fourteen thousand
miles on it

1 Answer


miles or km? and that sounds like it may jsut need a top up on the trany fluid. If your going to top it up i would recommend replacing it and the trany filter. If this does not fix the problem then its a bit more serious. Before this did you ever have no power in the car or removed the battery or relays and harnesses?
