Might be a water problem inside. At least that is what the dealer told my
brother with his 97 Jetta when they sold him a new trans, and these
transmissions are sealed(?). His Jetta was purchased used with over 60k miles.
Have you owned this Jetta since new and does it have less than 100K miles?
Maybe the warranty applies! :-)
I had to clean the wiring plug to my 91 passat automatic transmission when it
started not shifting properly after a heavy rain. Cleaning the plug terminals
improved the shifting!!
Let us know what you find or do! I am looking at purchasing a 96 Jetta cheap
with a bad transmission. I kinda want to know what makes them work.......or
not work! ;-)

Well, I have good news. There was a leak in the transmission, and after
replacing a gasket and reprogramming the codes, the car is driving 99%
better. It cost much less than replacing the transmission would have,
needless to say!
