Hello!
Most automatic transmissions are quite happy with Dextron 1,II, or III, if you are really unsure then looking on the ATF fluid bottle will show manufacturer's reccomendations.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

How to change the transmisson oil and filter on a 1993 vw passat with a vr6


My service manual for a 90-93 Passat makes no mention of a VR-6 engine but here's what it says for the regular auto transmission.
Loosen the bottom pan bolts and let the old fluid drain into a catch pan. Remove it and clean it . Replace the strainer (filter) if it can't be cleaned or is damaged. Replace the pan gasket, be sure the 4 corner gasket spacers are in place before tightening the bolts.Torques are 71 in-lbs for the filter and 89 in-lbs for the pan bolts.

To check the fluid level, the engine and trans must have a minimum of 6 miles of driving on them before the level is checked. The engine is running when you check it. The 20*C mark is the cold level.

VW recommends this be done every 2 years or 30,000 miles.

Type of transmission oil for 2001 VW PASSAT


the trans fluid can only be serviced through a standpipe in the pan with car in the air and trans at an exact temp,<needs to be on a monitor computer> it also uses special fluid not any of the normal fluids. this fluid is suposed to be "lifetime" fluid that doesn't need servicing unless there is a leak or a trans failure.

Power stearing on 2001 VW passat


Depends on how you define closed system, Just the spot to add the fluid is all that you should have open. It's the Green cap near the drivers front head light (it'll have a little steering wheel logo on the cap) It takes special VW CHF 11S fluid (most autozones, carquest etc.) should have it.

start your cr-v and let idle for 10 or so seconds in park. shut it off and check the fluid with in 30 seconds. if you check the fluid running it will read low and get overfilled. level ground is also important.
