Where is the dipstick transmission oil located in a 2.0 jetta

Maybe like my Polo, no dipstick just a filler plug about 1 inch diam. on transmission case on RH side of engine. Remove and check that oil is up to bottom of the plug threads.

How do i tell if i have a blown head gasket

Usually if it's blown between the cylinders it will have white steam out of the tail pipe. If it's crack between the oil and coolant gasket holes, you will have coolant entering the crankcase and your oil will have brownish sludge. Look for signs of coolant mixing with oil on your dipstick.

Weird! I have put in too much oil in to my 2001 Jetta TDI. I take off the plug and drain it, but it's still away above the full mark, and now, no oil comes out of the pan! Never seen anything like it....

are you sure your checking the motor oil level with the motor oil dipstick and not the trans dipstick,or your removing the wrong drain plug and not draining the motor oil but another oil like transmission.

I am trying to check the oil and the dipstick is confusing. there are two holes and the oil level is up to the second hole. how should the stick look if the oil is full. should the entire shaded area be...

The hole closest to the end of the dipstick is the ADD line. At this point, the oil is 1 US quart low. The SECOND hole is the FULL line. The shaded area in between the two holes is the "SAFE" area. It is not necessary to add any oil if the oil level is in this area.

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995

OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Can i put transmission fluid in my 97 jetta myself, or do i have to go to a mechanic? also i can't find the place where it goes?

Yes you can do it yourself.

Make sure it's an automatic. Transmission fluid doesn't go into a manual transmission. (though some manuals do use ATF, and ironically a Yugo uses SAE 30 motor oil)

You'll need a funnel that will fit in the dipstick hole, but yes, you can do it yourself. Check the transmission levels with your car running.
