SOURCE: how do i check tranny fluid?

There is no dipstick or way for the owner to check tranny fluid. It has to be brought to dealer and left overnight. They have to plug it in under a specific set of conditions to check fluid. Expect to pay about 40 dollars a liter for tranny fluid. I just had this done about 2 weeks ago

SOURCE: Auto transmission fluid check C180 Petrol 1997

The car has to be running when checking the trans fluid. It should have reading guages on the bottom of the stick with minimum/max levels. You should take it out and wipe it then reinsert it to read level...It should have fluid at least on the bottom 2 inches of the stick. If noting then your low and need to add. make sure your putting the trans fluid in the correct place and not mixing it with the oil fill...

SOURCE: C180 auto trans fluid check, no dipstick

The dipstick can be purchased from your local dealer, OR you have to go to your dealer for service (or a local mechanic who has the proper dipstick for your car). More and more car companies are not including the dipsticks in their vehicles in order to have the vehicle "properly serviced" by the dealer, and the dealer only. Unfortunately, the dipstick is quite expensive the last time I checked, and you may have to shop around to find a mechanic that wont charge you a whole lot of money to check your fluid for you.

Thanks for asking!

SOURCE: how can i check the level of my transmission fluid

Assuming it is an automatic. With engine idling, put transmission thru all gears, put back in park, keep engine running, check dipstick for tranny. If it is a manual then you have to crawl under car and remove upper "fill" plug on gearbox, fluid will be up to that level. NOTE: unless your tranny leaks it should never be low!

How can the transmision fluid be checked on a 2002 jetti tdi other than a dealer. tranny was rebuilt abouy 2000 miles ago.


its not possible.the fluid level is checked by a special tool which only the dealer has,. TO CHECK OR ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID TO JETTA IT HAS TO BE BROUGHT IN TO A VOLKSWAGON DEALER THERE IS NO DIP STICK EVERYTHING IS SEALED SO ONLY THE MECHANIC CAN CHECK IT. the only option to check the fluid is to to crack the seal but this will damage the car. there are many VOLKSWAGON car users facing this problem. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

1998 volkswagon jetta manual transmission is hard to shift


Transmission problem...

I'd check the fluid levels... on most if not all 98's there is no tranny fluid stick so you have to either look for the plug on the transmission. Most cars have 2. One on the bottom and one half way up from the bottom of the transmission driver's side. Top it off until the tranny fluid runs out of the hole.

If this doesnt help... you need to get it checked.
