If you look right behind the battery in front of the trany near the linkage for the shifter you should see a small dip stick near the bottom of the trany its very hard to see do too its location.

Where do you check oil level for automatic gearbox on vw golf gti automatic dsg 2006


You don't. There are special tools and procedures. You'll have to take it to the dealer, I'm afraid. Hope this helps.

2004 Golf 2.0FSI auto transmission, 77,000 kms, dealer serviced since new, one owner (my wife). Auto trans is slipping and not selecting gears/keeping gears properly. Is this a common problem? VW dealer...


Check fluid level first to ensure that there is enough hydraulic pressure for brake bands and clutches to engage fully. Have the engine running in 'park' and remove the transmission fluid dip stick. Check level, colour and smell: it should be pink/red with no hint of any burnt aroma. If it is tinged brown this is due to clutch surface material wearing away. The acrid over cooked smell will arise if the brake bands are continuously slipping and generating heat. If the level looks low top with extra fluid via the transmission dipstick tube (do not confuse this with the gearbox oil dipstick) VW is a popular make and there will be auto transmission specialists out there with extensive knowledge. It would be no harm phoning around to ask for them to give it an assessment and then to ask the cost of adjustment, overhaul, repair or replacement.

How to remove thesump automatic golf 2000


Sump meaning oil pan? Buy the white adhesive in a tube for the pan from the dealer. Once you remove the pan you'll need to clean out the old goo and apply the new one before you fasten the pan back to the engine.

If you're asking about auto trans pan, you'll need a new rubber seal, filter O-ring, VW oem auto trans fluid and a new filter. Then after all that work you'll need a scan tool to tell you fluid temp indicating the correct fluid level when it spills out at that temperature.

Transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto


VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

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.
