This page explains how to change the transmission fluid but about half way down the page it tells how to check for the proper amount of fluid:

If I am not mistaken it's the same as checking the fluid in a manual transmission you need to make sure that the car is level then you will need a T17 hex head bit to remove the fill plug that is located in the front of the transmission on the driver side. once you have that plug out take your pinky finger and stick it in and if you can fill the fluid then your good if not you need to add some until it comes out put the plug back in and your good

Having problem with transmission shifting. Tried to check transmition fluid, but can find the dip stick.


The transmissions on the VW New Beetles are sealed, and there is no dip stick. Sorry, it's a dealer issue if there's a problem with the transmission.

Where do I check the transmission fluid in a 1996 volkswagen jetta automatic transmission?


VW's are notorious for not having a dipstick in the transmissions. The units are sealed, and can only be check by the VW dealers.

Sorry, my 1998 VW Beetle had the same problem.

I have 2001 vw beetle and my transmission surgers... what can i do for it


On some volkswagen Transmissions you can reset the computers shift plan by doing the following. Starting with car off in park, turn ignition to ON (but do not start) then depress the gas pedal for at least 3 seconds, then shut the car off, start and drive. This resets the computer's shifting plan for some VW's and you can expect some hard shifts after this reset, but it may help with funny shifting. The afore stated speed sensor is also a possible culprit.

Cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid on 99 vw beetle. do '99 Passats need transmission fluid added to the engine? If so, how do I do this?


There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.
