SOURCE: where is the transmission dipstick located in a 2005 VW Jetta

There is no dip stick on this car, most of the newer Volkswagen did not come with one, the way to check the level is car will need to be on a car lift and level, engine at operating temp. then run through the gears and back to park, apply parking brake and raise car, on the transmission pan there will be a plug, remove the plug and if fluid drips out it is full if not then you must add, note ; make sure to use correct fluid.i would get fluid from dealer!.

I will enclose a picture of the transmission pan to show you how it works, there is a tube in the pan, when you remove the plug on the bottom of the pan it has a tube that sticks up and fluid flows all around it , the top of the tube is the correct level, so any fluid higher than tube will flow out. you want a small slow stream or dribble to come out. if no fluid flows out then you will add, to add i have enclosed a picture of the fill location, remove the cap and add slowly until it starts to flow out the bottom, do not put plug in until flow is slow or dripping, if you add a quart then run through gears again, and add more if needed,

You can try to do this on the ground, just make sure car is level and warmed up and you run through all gears, so to recap, warm engine and then go from park and go through all gears with shifter then back to park and leave engine running with e brake on and remove plug and add as needed until slow stream then install plug on pan and cap on the filler. hope this is helpful good day.5_18_2012_4_24_04_pm.png5_18_2012_4_24_12_pm.png

2005 chevrolet cobalt automatic transmission will not shift into overdrive


Low trans fluid, dirty transmission filter, clogged valve body in transmission, bad trans controller, or vehicle speed sensor. There is no dipstick to check trans fluid. I would start by having trans flushed and filled and codes scanned if problem still persists take to a certified transmission shop unless you are an experienced mechanic

I have a 2003 jetta automatic, 2.0 doen't want to move when shifted into drive unless I tap the gas pedal then it lurches forward and is fine the rest of the day.


Since there is no dipstick to check your fluid level, I recommend changing your transmission fluid and filter and make sure that it is filled to the proper level with the proper fluid. I believe the capacity is 3.2 qts. and I use Castrol Transmission Fluid for Imports. You can double check the capacity and use another brand of fluid that is compatible at your parts store. Just make sure that the fluid you get is compatible and that it is filled to the proper level. To refill your transmission there is a dipstick tube adapter on the front side of the transmission. It is just an elbow with a red or black cap that is o-ring sealed and will have a lock ring on it that you can remove with a small screwdriver. Use a funnel that has a "Measuring cup" and a hose on it so you can measure out the fluid. Hope this helps.

If the fluid is full and there are no external leaks, and it is still malfunctioning, I would try to flush and refill the transmission with new fluid to see if this rectifies the problem. If it doesn't, then there is a problem with a shift solenoid where the transmission will have to be reserviced and perhaps torn down and rebuilt again (I know this is dreadful). Try to see if there are any codes stored on the computer for the transmission that might point to a clue about the problem you are experiencing with it.

2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA automatic gasoline engine. shifts hard sometimes.


YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.

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.

Where the plug for tranny on 96' jetta is located?


On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.
