Hi guys, have a bit of a problem with the 4 speed auto in my 2000 VW bora/jetta.
Went to drive the car the day after taking it to a mechanic for something unrelated and could not really find any gears.
Going down the gearstock the gears are out of alignment, example Drive is park reverse if neutral ect.
if i go all the way down to gear 1, this indicates on the dash as being gear 3 and going up all the gears engage Position 1 = gear 3, Position 2 = gear 3, Position 3 = gear 3, Position d = drive, Position n = neutral, Position r = reverse and Position p = park.
Going down however, few gears engage and they are all over the place. The car drives fine except except for the slight hesitation/hold for split second too long from 2nd to 3rd which it has been doing since i bought the car.
Thinkingf maybe something to do with teh linkage perhaps except not too sure how this operates on an auto compared to a manual which i know is a common failure amongst some cars
Car has 110,000 kilometres (around 70,000 miles)
