hi there, my 94 GOLF GL has gone shifting problem on & off for a long time. It's not frequent, but make me very nervous when it happens. Any genius people, pls help.
It locked in 1st gear (or emergency mode), it just got one gear no matter how high the rev is. After a while, maybe 3kms, it becomes OK again. It happens more and more now.
Is the gearbox need a good flush? Would changing the oil helps? Coz I think the ducts or filter maybe dirty, causing the gearbox malfunction. Even makes the gearbox overheat, then computer takes over into emergency mode. I did get the oil changed 5000km ago, but it happens again now. Also, the tachometer flicks a little occasionally now.
