Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 1991 Volkswagen Jetta transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Volkswagen Jetta transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Jetta at all.

1991 Volkswagen Jetta Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Jetta? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Jetta is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Jetta's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1991 Jetta’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
