They are a sealed transmission, no level check available. You will need to take it to a trans specialist or maybe even the VW dealer if there is a trans issue.

Here is the procedure from VW for the automatic. The fluid is special and only available from VW. Maybe better off left to the dealer.

Transmission must not be in emergency running mode. Transmission should be in PARK. Transmission fluid temperature must not be more than 80° F (30° C) at the beginning of check. Open the check level plug on the bottom of the transmission pan. Add fluid through the fill plug as needed until it drips from the check level plug. Some fill caps can be easily twisted off. Others will be broken when removed and must be replaced.

2001 maxima se slips when shifting into 2nd and 3rd only if driving easy. Seems fine under hard accel. It revs to 3500rpm before it grabs. Makes it hard to drive easy. Any Ideas? Thankyou Very Much, Jon

make sure you have the proper fluid level and that the tran fluid is the correct type ... you could have a clogged intake filter .. thats inside the transmition and is normally changed when fluid is changed .. however if the fluid has never been changed then it becomes a problem when you do .. the new fluid can wash deposits off of surfaces that end up clogging passagways and the filter .. so there is another way .. you can have the transmition "flushed" .. they force a cleaning fluid thru the tranny and torque converter .. that washes out gunk .. that service is a little over $100 many places .. however you have to make a judgment call here .. your 2001 may have enough miles that the transmition is at end of life ... they wear out usually before 150,000 miles .. sometimes well before that ... you can sometimes tell if there is damage by looking at the fluid .. if its dark or smells burned then thats a sign of a damaged transmition .. if your fluid level is low then thats the lowest cost repair .. just put in the proper amount (check running in park for most cars) ... the cleaning wont help if there is damaged parts but will if its just clogged up .. a mechanic can help you make that judgment .. you will have to do something soon because whatever is the problem it will only get worse until it quits altogether, that might leave yoiu standed .. ..that can only increase the cost of repairs and limit your selection of repair shops .. good luck ..

Transmition not shifting automaticaly on 2001 pt -cruiser

Check the fluid level and add the proper amount if needed. If the level is fine, take it to a shop. It sounds like the transmission is slipping, and the heat generated will quickly kill it.

Unknown warning light

Check you fluid levels on the car. Oil and transmission can turn this light on. Check the oil while car is off and transmission while the car is on.
