Tried searching but there are so many different scenarios that don't sound like my issue :-/
So, I have a 97 Jetta Vr6, and recently it's been grinding and making a huge clunk sound when going into reverse. And now its really hard to get into first and second. There's no grinding. The shifter just stops and doesn't go up ito first or down into second. I have to literally used both hands to put it into gear
What's weird is that it starts working once the car is warmed up. So after I've been driving it for a while, everything gets smooth again. It's only at cold start ups. The clutch feels the same. The shifter feels the same not wobbly. When I finally do put it into first or second it doesn't grind or make any noise as I'm giving it gas to move forward. 3rd an 4th are okay still but I feel like they might be getting there also. And 5th is also an issue. This just happened all of a sudden it hasnt been an on going problem. Gears were smooth and everything. Just one morning reverse started acting up an then it sorta went downhill.
Car has 165k miles. Engine still runs strong and it's clean overall. Clutch was done at 90k miles along so I dont think it's that? But idk at this point. What do you guys think???
