SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how to change transmission fluid in z71 silverado

may i ask why you need to already change the fluid, unless you have burned fluid normally its good for 90,000 mi,otherwise if so, the drain plug is directly behind the bell housing of the engine/tranny and the filter is right there too under the access panel the drain plug is on

SOURCE: WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA

you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

SOURCE: 1990 Ford F250 automatic dumped all transmission

Depends on where the actual puddle is at if it was towards the front of the truck you may want to check for a broken transmission cooler line. If it was towards the rear check the rear seal of the transmission. There is also a front pump seal that could be the problem check between the trans and engine where they mount together and see if its not leaking there if it is then it would be the front pump seal.

I just replaced the trans in my 99 durango for the second time in a week it drove great for the first 50 miles then it loses all the gears fluid smells burnt New fluid filter cooler and lines ...


Could it be possible the coolant lines are reversed not allowing the trans fluid to reach the cooler? The pressure line from the trans pump can easily be identified by taking it loose and directing the fluid into a container.

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60E trans problem


O.k. the small hose that you have coming out of the case is the trans vent. The one going up the firewall is for the transfer case. The trans vent should be hooked to the transfercase vent. You say you have a 383? Are you running the fuel injection system. Is this a 4L60E (the stock transmission). If you have fluid coming from the vent, the transmission is getting too hot. Replace the cooler. Do away with the radiator cooler and add one to the front in front of the condenser.

Trans, cooler ? Does the Dodge 2002 Intrepid have a transmission cooler, in front of or near the radiator, if so can fluid leaks occur after replacing the main radiator on the car. Have one that has leaked...


Hi:
You are correct. Almost all automatic cars have a transmission cooler connected to the radiator with 2 hoses, near the bottom. If the hoses are leaking or not installed correctly, all of the fluid from your transmission will get pumped out on the ground, and you won't be able to move the car. Inspect the two hoses and hopefully you will find your problem.

My transmission line that connects to the radiator


The easiest fix is to get a transmission fluid cooler & use it to replace the fan connection completely. Basically you'll just shorten your lines a bit to clamp a hose over them & connect both lines to the 2 lines on the cooler. the cooler installs onto the front of the radiator with push through connectors that makes it easy to install & it will provide you even better trans. cooling in the warm months.

I have seen people use just a hose to connect the 2 lines & not have any problem in the cooler months but you really do need the trans fluid cooled during the warmer months to prevent trans damage.

check you fluid & top it off properly after making the repair!

Good Luck

What is the trans fluid service interval?


Hi,

This is the most overlooked service of vehicles today.

Due to the advanced technology in electronic transmissions, it is now more important than ever, to regularly change the trans fluid. Most auto transmission failures are a result of bad fluid or incorrect levels.

Whilst most manufacturers suggest fluid changes around 60 - 80,000miles, if you intend to keep the vehicle for a few years, then I strongly reccommend following the new standard of 30,000mile intervals.

This will involve flushing the transmission & cooler tank (with clean trans fluid), changing the trans oil filter and refilling with new fluid to the CORRECT level.

Use ONLY manufacturer's specified transmission fluid (not all fluids have the same properties).

NEVER overfill the transmission case.

Modern day electronic transmissions rely on good oil pressure to perform well. Regular trans oil changes will ensure this, as well as avoiding costly transmission repairs.

Cheers,
