2006 VW new Beetle with 6-speed AT. I can feel the AT slipping and watch the tach rev up while just driving down the road. Seems to only happen at 40-65 mph, not at accelerate from stop. First check...


Your vehicle does not have a transmission fluid dipstick. These types of transmissions are designed to be maintenance free. In order to check the transmission fluid, your vehicle likely has check valve on the bottom of the transmission on the bottom of your car. Your car must be level when the fluid is checked and we therefore recommend having a mechanic with a hydraulic lift or underground bay check your transmission fluid. Any fluid leaks for this type of transmission should be treated by a mechanic.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

Where do I check the transmission fluid in a 1996 volkswagen jetta automatic transmission?


VW's are notorious for not having a dipstick in the transmissions. The units are sealed, and can only be check by the VW dealers.

Sorry, my 1998 VW Beetle had the same problem.

2005 vw beatle trans is sliping .is this this major? or just low on fluid ? cant check it w/out a dip stick.


Yes and yes. Are you sure it doesn't have a dipstick? Engine is transverse/sideways, transmission is on driver side? Normal transmission check is; warm transmission, engine running, hold brake, shift through all gears, put back in park, engine still running, pull dispstick, wipe and check dipstick again. Should be near "warm" markings.

Where can I find my 2000 vw transmission dip stick?


There is no Dipstick. Checking the trans level can only be done with VW software to read out the trans oil temp & removing the 5mm plug on the bottom of the trans pan. There is a hidden filler behind the front guard that will accept fluid. The trans is full when the fluid escapes the bottom hole after adding it to the filler at the correct temperature. Not for the faint hearted.

Where is the transmission dipstick on a '99 Beetle?


Sorry folks, when VW breated the New Beetle they sealed the transmission. As such, there is no dip stick in the transmission. Unless you have noticed a fluid loss on the pavement beneath the car, your transmission should be fine. Otherwise, it's a dealer issue.

Cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid on 99 vw beetle. do '99 Passats need transmission fluid added to the engine? If so, how do I do this?


There is no "dipstick for the VW Beetle transmission". This is a dealer check/repair item. The unit is typically sealed, but can have a leak if the seal on top of the transmission fails. About a $700 repair. This happened on my 1998 VW New Beetle.
