There is a brass colored plug facing skyward on the left (US driver's) side at the rear of the 6 speed automatic transmission. This plug is removed with a Torx tool (I cannot recall but is in the range of a #40). This plug provides a direct access to the case of the transmission and if you can find a suitable small funnel (I made an adapter) with a small piece of fuel line, etc. you can introduce ATF into the tranny. The transmission holds about 5 liters of special VW fluid. All the transmission experts I have talked to say to use the VW fluid. It is expensive but less expensive than a new valve body, etc. There is a overflow tower in the drain plug. I changed the fluid by dropping the pan. There is a magnetic plate trap in the pan. It will be covered with metallic particles. VW is dead wrong about "fluid for life". Change it at 80K to 85K miles.

SOURCE: where is my transmission oil located on my 2003 jetta vw 1.8t

My 2002 Jetta TDI had similar symptoms and research revealed that that model transmission (01M) is plainly and simply, a heap of **** . If you want to be done with it, you can have a used manual installed for about half what replacement with another POS would cost. If you are mechanically inclined, you can follow the procedure outlined on www.tdiclub.com to do it yourself, or if you are lucky, there is a "Guru" near you who can do it for you. (I wouldn't let a dealer touch it though!) I did the swap myself just about a month ago, and I LOVE driving my car again. No comparison between that old slush box and a manual with TDI torque.

The dealer is correct. It is a sealed system, there are no drain plugs/bolts for the transmission fluid. The only way to remove the old fluid is to go to a VW dealer and let them use a special "vacuum" type machine that will **** out the old and put in new fluid. However, if you are not having issues with the transmission than there is no need to replace the fluid because it is supposed to last the lifetime of the vehicle on this VW.

Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.

All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.

Fluid Level Check

Automatic Transaxle Differential Fluid
The manufacturer does not specify a maintenance interval for changing the differential oil/fluid. However, periodic inspection of the level of the fluid (and the fluid itself) is recommended. A high oil level indicates one of three conditions. First, the previous mechanic/owner may have accidentally overfilled the transaxle if the vehicle was not level. Secondly a high oil level (assuming the vehicle is level) can be caused by excessive condensation (water) in the differential. This may be a result of constant operation in wet areas, or high humidity. Moisture can condense inside of the transaxle in the same manner that a can of cold soda 'sweats' when removed from a refrigerator. Lastly, a high oil condition may indicate that the internal seals that separate the differential section from the torque converter/gearset are possibly faulty, and ATF has contaminated the differential oil.

NOTE Access to the fill/level plug is difficult with the vehicle on the ground. The vehicle must be level to ensure an accurate reading. Carefully raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands in order to access the fill/level plug. Make sure the vehicle is level before completely removing the plug.

  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle such that it is level.
  3. Place a suitable drain receptacle underneath the rear of the transaxle.
  4. Remove the filler plug on the side of the transaxle, near the halfshaft flange.
  5. Note the oil level; it should be even with the lower edge of the filler hole.
  6. If the oil level is low, add the proper type and viscosity as necessary to obtain the correct oil level.
  7. Install the filler plug, and tighten it securely.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

I have a 98 vw jetta gls... the transmission drops into neutral and slams into first gear after coming to a complete stop.... can you help me????


you may have a fluid leak that has left the pan next to empty. check the fluid level, and add if needed. VW need specific tranny fluid. Mobil 1 Dex III will work though.

Hey guys, trying to check tranny fluid in 98 jetta my daughters just picked up


Drive the Jetta for ten minutes or so to warm up the transmission fluid.
Step 2Drive the Jetta into the work area and place your foot on the brake. Shift the shifter into each gear and hold it there for 3 to 4 seconds. Return the shifter back to drive.
Step 3With the engine running, lift the Jetta on a four-post side-by lift or a drive-on lift. The vehicle must be level when elevated to get a proper fluid level reading.
Step 4Locate the transmission. On the low right hand side (passenger side) of the transmission is a small service plug. Place a drain bucket strategically beneath the plug and remove it with a hand wrench. A small amount of transmission fluid should trickle out indicating that the fluid level is okay. VW recommends during these maintenance service interval checks to test the temperature of the transmission fluid using a scan tool. VW also recommends replacing the transmission check plug each time it is removed.
Step 5If any transmission fluid is needed to be added, locate and remove the fill plug that is on the front left upper corner by the oil pan. Add a little bit of fluid at a time through this portal while watching the check level portal and as soon as it begins to trickle out from that outlet, the transmission fluid level is full.

Go to volkswagen for the fluid.
I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission? if so any aftermarket fluid will make short work of your transmission.
