The transmission is sealed, it takes a special tool to fill it correctly, the dealer is the one with the tool.

SOURCE: WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION OIL

The transmission doesn't have a filter. The oil filter is usually on the bottom of the engine. Both have a bolt that can be taken off to drain the fluids. Usually, they are on the bottom. Jack your car up and you should be able to find them, or refer to your manual.

SOURCE: Isuzu Trooper 1997. Automatic Transmission holds gears too long.

Their is a power and normal drive in trooper's power for pulling a trailer and normal for normal driving. The power drive only changes gear at higher R.P.M. Their is a switch on the plastic cover under the handbrake with p & n their is a light in the dash as well. If you are not aware of this switch then just needs switching over if you are aware of it then its probably the fuse to activate it or a wiring problem with it, Cheers

Testimonial: "I know the switch. But nothing changes when I switch back and forth. No light on the dashboard either. I don't know if it is in normal or power."

What is the best transmission oil to use in a 1.4 litre 2003 vw polo?


You need to go by the manual on that. everyone will have a suggestion, but some VW's are critical to get the right stuff. The book in your glove box will have a specific type, and will have the weight and viscosity. Then you can go to a parts store and change brands or go to synthetic.

Automatic transmission fluid vw polo


The dash lights are powered by the battery through the ignition switch via a fuse. Check the electric connections and conditions of the wires.

Change the transmission fluid to solve transmission issues. Original fluid is always preferable as it is specifically designed for the transmission.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

Can i use transmission oil on a polo classic 1.8i (1997 - 1999) model gearbox? because i used gear oil and now my gears are even harder to get in.


Is it an automatic transmission or manual. Most new vehicles require low weight oils like 5w20 or less like Automatic Transmission oil, If you added gear oil you might have already damaged the transmission, IF you are able to drain all the fuild out, and replace the Transmission Filter and Gasket you might be able to salvage it.

Not knowning the reason for you adding this oil to the transmission i can not offer any more help.

Dipstick


If it is an automatic, which I assume it is since you're looking for a dipstick, it needs a special fixture to add fluid(Dealer or foreign auto mechanic) or check level. If it's a manual trans, there is a check/fill plug on the end of the transmission behind the driver's side front tire, probably takes a 17mm internal hex head socket. Use 75W/90 gear oil, filling the trans until oil just starts to overflow through the hole.
