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
description.

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.

tdisline_304.jpg
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.
Good Luck.

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.

How do i put in transmission oil 2004 volkswagen passat


There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u will find on older american cars.

The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.

The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.

Transmision on a 2002 passat wagon with a 5 speed ans 1.8 l.


location of the filler being at the back of the transmission.
It is just a small little thing that you cant hardly see or reach. 17 mm one is the fill one. It is just like a bolt on the side of the transmission. You have to pump fluid in.
The reason for this is that VW has a policy, or believes in their oil lasting the lifetime of the car. Most people are finding that this is not the case.

Find the transmission filler tube under the hood. Get a funnel, and fill. Do not overfill, and use proper tranny fluid for your cars' specifications. Your user manual should have a capacities index, and the type of trans. fluid to use listed somewhere in the manual. Hope this helps.

I'm not an expert on Volkswagens, but on all the cars I've ever owned, transmission fluid was added directly down the tube that houses the transmission fluid dip stick. Remove the dip stick and use a funnel with a narrow opening. I hope this helps you out.
