Your trans may be worn but the problem may just be that the weather is turning colder and the oil is thick. Does the problem go away once the car has been driven for a few miles? Also check the gear oil level and maybe go ahead and have new oil put in the trans.

The weather isn't cold here in south florida it doesn't change when the car is driven a few miles but i will try new oil

    I have a change to purchase a 96 jetta with only 65,000 miles. It does have a transmission leak and needs a new valve cover at the intake. Are these two repairs going to be over 500.00.
