No you should never pour tranny fluid down that dipstick..infact the transmission for mk3 jettas dont have dipsticks for automatics. you need to find someone who will change it for you.

On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.

Go to volkswagen for the fluid.
I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission? if so any aftermarket fluid will make short work of your transmission.

if you are talking about a manual transaxle..then I hear good things about Redlines' MT fluid

How do you add transmission fluid to a 2007 VW Jetta 2.5L?


There is a brass colored plug facing skyward on the left (US driver's) side at the rear of the 6 speed automatic transmission. This plug is removed with a Torx tool (I cannot recall but is in the range of a #40). This plug provides a direct access to the case of the transmission and if you can find a suitable small funnel (I made an adapter) with a small piece of fuel line, etc. you can introduce ATF into the tranny. The transmission holds about 5 liters of special VW fluid. All the transmission experts I have talked to say to use the VW fluid. It is expensive but less expensive than a new valve body, etc. There is a overflow tower in the drain plug. I changed the fluid by dropping the pan. There is a magnetic plate trap in the pan. It will be covered with metallic particles. VW is dead wrong about "fluid for life". Change it at 80K to 85K miles.

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.

I have a 98 vw jetta gls... the transmission drops into neutral and slams into first gear after coming to a complete stop.... can you help me????


you may have a fluid leak that has left the pan next to empty. check the fluid level, and add if needed. VW need specific tranny fluid. Mobil 1 Dex III will work though.

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.

Transmission fluid check on a vw jetta tdi


Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.

All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.
