Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
I cant seem to find where to put transmission fluid on my 2002 passat i lookd everywhere under the hood. it is very low i think because the gears wont shift in reverse or drive It jerks everytime i put it in drive.
All transmission consume fluid because they have to inorder to keep the seals from drying out. The ATF is topped up from a large plug in the bottom of the transmission. Careful because the small plug is the drain. The large one, 17 mm allen, has a sleeve around it so that you can fill with a pump and hooked adapter, until it overflows. Done only when cold. But by now I would drain and change it.

No fluids are consumed in any vehicle
Thinking something you know nothing about
& the real issues, should be addressed at a repair
shop or trans shop
If it is low on trans fluid, then most likely
the damage is done already, based on your
If it is low, then at the very least, you repair the leak,
not just add fluid

How to check & change oil in automatic transmission on 2004 VW Passat 1.8 Turbo
At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

SOURCE: How do I put in
This car has no dip stick. The car must be lifted on a level surface. Make sure you get the correct fluid.The temperature of the fluid should be at 99 degrees F, a drive around the block should do, or an infrared thermometer can be used to check the temp through the check window, after removing the rubber plug. The fluid should be topped off at this temp by injecting it through a vaccum pump. A small hand pump is fine. Too much and it will spill out. If filled when cold, it will expand and cause damage to gaskets. Replace plug, and ready to go.

THERE IS NO DIPSTICK. CAR MUST GO TO DEALER TO HAVE CHECKED AS SCANNER HAS TO BE HOOKED UP & MUST BE BROUGHT UP TO TEMPERATURE TO CHECK LEVEL

It sounds like the clutch is not releasing fully, or you are not being patient enough. When you press the clutch, it DOES take time for all of the heavy steel gears to stop spinning. I suggest you get a diagnosis from a mechanic. Failure to reasolve will damage the other synchros and round the gear tips.
