Re: jetta 1999 transmission fluid
The fluid goes in through a plug in the top of the auto it is not recommended that you check it as it take a particular type of fluid that only VW uses and the transmission is not ment to be serviced. if the car is having trouble taking of the transmition might be about to fail our it might be low on fluid sagest to your boy friend that he checks for leaks and if he find one take it into VW to get repaird. unfortunatly these cars are expensive to fix and your average machanical minded person dose not have the corect service tools to do so

Volkswagen does not
have a dipstick. The fluid level is set by attaching a computer or
scanner to the car. When the fluid is at 35 degree's there should be
fluid pouring out the Level adjustment hole.
You check the trans fluid while the engine is running. The dipstick will be going into the trans. When you pull the dipstick out wipe it, put it back in then pull it back out. There will be an area of xxxxx or /////. This is your safe area. Use the same spout the dipstick goes in to fill with trans fluid by using a funnel.
sound like you need to check transmission fluid, the fluid too low causing transmission slipping, thats why car have no power.trasmission gear box light warning fluid low.if been a long long time,change transmission fluid and filter.
WELL CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL.ALSO IF FLUID LOOK DARK SMELL BURNT REPLACE FLUID AND FILTER AND CHECK MANUAL SHIFT VALVE ADJUSTMENT.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD YOUR REVERSE VALVE IN VALVE BODY STUCK OR DAMAGED OR FAULT IN VALVE BODY.TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE DAMAGED OR WORN REVERSE INPUT GEAR AND CLUTCH PLATES PISTON SEALS.
Jetta's 2006 carry sealed gear box. There is no dip stick to check the transmission fluid. Per manufacturer, transmission fluid requires to change unless there is any issue with transmission. I hope this helps.
You might welded up your trasmission with no fluid you probly had dry rotted transmission line If fluid leaking you dont drive it you stop. You could add fluid after you find the rotten transmission line replace it ow that fun i done this before. Find the rotten line ore leak fix it cross your fingers add right fluid level and see if goes in gear also use correct fluid for that car all car take diffferent fluids types
