1999 New Beetle Manual Transmission Problems
Last week a bought a used New Beetle 1999 144K manual transmission.
When I did the drive test all was OK, but after few days some transmission problems show up.
At cold in the morning shifts fine , but after 10k of running shifts hard in first gear, in second is better but not how supposed to be. Another thing is, in 3rd and 4th gear when I am using break engine (even when I am not accelerating but I am in 3rd or 4th gear) is making a "trrrrrrrr" sound, it disappear when I accelerate.
I already change the linkage, in my opinion it is something in gearbox but I don't know what it could be, some bearings?
When the engine is not running everything works fine, the clutch is fine.
I noticed something, if is just a quick stop and it is in neutral and I am not lifting the clutch, then shifts fine is 1st gear.
I aready chanhe the gear oil, I used 75W90 with lucas leaking fix additive.
Is there somebody who run in similar problem?
