Can't find dip stick for transmition


There is a dipstick, most likely rear drivers side of engine but could be elsewhere. There are only 2 dipsticks in engine compartment, one is oil and the other is trans fluid. They should be marked. You add the fluid down the dipstick tube. Engine needs to be running in park and trans needs to be at operating temp to get accurate measurement on fluid. Hope this helps.

1998 vw jetta 2.0 automatic transmission does not works properly until it gets worm?


When was the transmission fluid last changed? It's probably contaminated with something that flows more easily when it's warm. Check the fluid and do a flush and fill if it isn't clean. If you know a reputable transmission mechanic, have him evaluate the fluid before the change - he should be able to tell you if it indicates significant wear on an internal component.

Think its outta transmission fluid dont know how to check it or where to add it


There is no dipstick on the 2.0L auto trans. You have to check it and/or fill it from under the car. There is a fill plug on the trans case that will just drip fluid when it is full.

Cant find where to add trans fluid on 97 jetta 5 speed


A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.

If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.
