Re: after getting small amt of transmission fluid in gas...
Don't even want to know how you accomplished this! The Problem is that the Oil from the Tranny Fluid has gotten into the Fuel injection sytem. Get some B12-Chemtool from Wal-Mart or and Auto Parts store, Pour this into the gas tank and let it run for a while, Should get it done for Ya!

Check the transmission fluid level, if it's low, you
have a leak & Look for fluids that have leaked on the ground below
the transmission. Check the transmission case as well. Fluid can leak
from seals, gaskets, fluid cooler and lines. Pinpoint the exact source
of the leak to make proper repairs.
Place a few drops of transmission fluid on a white
paper towel. Red or light brown fluid that spreads easily over the
towel is in good condition. Dark brown or black fluid that is gooey or
thick fluid needs replacing to allow proper pressure and lubrication
within the transmission.
Replace the fluid filter to ensure it's in good
working order. Check the old filter for metal shavings, which are a
sign of wear and require a fluid flush.
Look at your check engine light to verify it has not
come on. If the check engine is on, take the car to a mechanic who can
pull the code and pinpoint the problem. Electronic transmissions can
detect even small faults in operation, and you may want to drive the
car to verify that the problem was not a one-time or erroneous error.
Seek the assistance of a professional if the car is no
longer going into gear, slipping out of gear while driving or a
substantial amount of fluid is leaking. Fixing a transmission problem
on your car early can save you money and help keep you on the road for
a long time to come.
If there is a torx plug in the middle of your transmission drain plug, you put the car level on stands, start the engine, remove that torx plug, insert a small hose up into the trans, and squirt fluid into the hose until it starts coming back out. Then remove the hose, replace the torx plug, and kill the engine.
Hi , being that the transmission shouldn't have a dipstick, the transmission pan will need to be removed in order to remove and change the filter, pretty straight forward , after the transmission lower pan bolts are removed, clean the pan and remove the filter by carefully pulling it from the valve body , a slight twist and tug should do it . than replace the filter by pushing it back up into the valve body. replace the blots and torque to 14 inch lbs.at the top of the transmission their should be a red or black fill plug . add 4 quarts of fluid to the transmission through this hole . start the car and run it through the gears . now back under the car there is a small 11 mm plug at the drivers side of the trans near where the axel shaft comes out ... remove this plug/bolt with the engine running and car in park . fluid should trickle out of this hole , if not still with the engine running pour additional trans fluid in the fill hole until fluid starts to trickle from lower hole , once that happens replace the 11mm bolt in the lower hole and replace the fill cap. road test the car and your all done
Aside from a mechanical issue, or incorrect fluid level, you may want to consider having the transmission flushed. The fluid gets tired and dirty over time and will decrease transmission performance. The fluid should be red in color. If its brownish or almost black its time to have it changed.
There are lots of things that can affect the engine and transmission. Mainly: Air Filter, Engine Oil and Oil Filter, Plugs and Plug Wires, Transmission Fluid, and the Fuel Filter. If you dont know how old these items are, or if they are the originals I recommend you replace them. Any of these alone can contribute to the issue you mentioned.
Right next to the plug that you removed that drained the transmission fluid is another plug, which is used to fill the transmission with fluid. You will need some type of hand pump and a reservoir to hold the transmission fluid. Parts stores sell a small pump that screws onto the top of gallon sized gear lube bottles. This would be ideal, since it has the hoses necessary to transfer the fluid from the reservoir or bottle, to the transmission. Pump fluid into the transmission until a little begins to run out of the fill hole. replace the plug in the transmission and start the engine, let it warm up, then move the gearshiftthru all the gears. Put the transmission in neutral and check the fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. If you decide to replace the fluid with fresh fluid, use only fluid designated for your vehicle to avoid damage to the transmission.
There is a small allen head plug on the bottom of transmission (6 mm).This where you you check the fluid .The transmission has to be at least 130 f and the engine idling in park on level ground.Fluid should drip from the hole if trans is full and you must use the factory vw fluid ( @ 25.00 quart) to fill.There is a 10 mm allen head plug on the top of transmission near the linkage that is the fill point.Good luck.These plugs strip out very easily , use the correct size and a high quality tool.
The check engine light comes on mostly when you have bad gas tank cup,or you don't tight enough the gasoline.Go to any auto-zone and request the obd scanner,at no charge just leave your driver license or credit card,connect the scanner follow the instructions.They will check up and the check engine light will come off in the next 3 to 5 days. Thank you !!
