SOURCE: 2001 vw cabrio automatic transmission

I'm dealing with the same car. I just had the transmission completely overhauled. Very$$$. The mechanic told me that it's common for cabrio's to develop this problem between 80,000 and 100,000 miles, mine happened around 95,000 miles. Knowing what I know now, I would have sold it.

SOURCE: how to remove transmission , how to replace reverse gear?

Are you sure that it is gone? make sure the all the bushing on the transmission are good it maybe that it is not able to go all the way in gear. If you do need to take it out get a good manual "Bentley" are the best it will show you the inside of the transmission too. Haynes are also good but not for working on the transmission it self

SOURCE: Need to know how to check automatic trans fluid in

Here is the procedure, you will need special equipment and fluid.

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.

SOURCE: how do you change front headlight bulb in 1999 vw

Raise hood (of course), behind the headlights you'll see a black rectangular shaped lid with a (I don't know what to call this) piece of metal strapping it down. This metal piece is about is comparable to a metal clothing hanger from the dry cleaner. Pop that metal piece up and then you can remove the back of the headlight casing. I hope I'm not out of line to assume once you look into the casing you'll find it's pretty self explanatory.

2002 Chevy Malibu with a 3.1ltr enging and a 4 speed automatic trans. The trans has a whinning sound when driving. It's not slipping and shifts correctly. It just has a whinning sound. What could the...


The most common whining noise from that tranny is the transmission pump. Sometimes they have a high pitch whine noise yet nothing wrong its normal. Sometimes its an indication of the pump being over-worked due to a dirty filter or fluid low. Turn engine on and check tranny fluid level. If low add to cold mark on dipstick, check for leaks under vehicle. If fluid appears very black or burnt smell, recommend flushing fluid and replacing filter (located inside tranny pan) yours will be a 4L60E type tranny.

I have a 99 Cabrio and there is no transmission dip stick. According to the manual, you cannot add transmission fluid to the transmission yourself, you have to take it to a dealer.

My 2000 concorde runs great when cold then tranny slips when hot. . . . . ?


Fluid level ok? Check it when hot and car running.

Have you had the tranny serviced recently?

This type of tranny uses the Dextron +4 fluid, any other fluid would mess up the transmission.

I have a 1999 Intrepid, no problem w tranny, but a month ago I put an aditive that a friend recomended. After only about 5 miles I felt the car more responsive and with more power. I also think my gas mileage improved.

I got it at AutoZone the brand is RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip with Leak Repair
it says works with all types of fluids.

I hope this will help. Good luck

Whine from 2005 corolla automatic transmission


Have the tranny serviced with fluid change and filter, if noise it still there it is the torque converter . Have the dealer fix it ,and have it on paper with dealer invoice when it is done. Do all this before warranty expires. IT IS NOT USUAL for any car, Toyota included, to have tranny whine!!!!!

Is it a auto tranny? Might be your fluid levels check those. Also could be your detent cable. If manual tranny and has a hydro clutch check those fluids. Just some stuff to check. I would hate to say change your transmission.
