2000 vw Jetta TDI transmission fluid change

There doesn't seem to be anywhere for us to remove the old transmission fluid and add new. The dealer says that this transmission in this year doesn't ever have to be changed and it is a sealed system. This doesn't sound right. I have 154,000 miles on this car and I know it probably needs to be changed. Any suggestions

The dealer is correct. It is a sealed system, there are no drain plugs/bolts for the transmission fluid. The only way to remove the old fluid is to go to a VW dealer and let them use a special "vacuum" type machine that will **** out the old and put in new fluid. However, if you are not having issues with the transmission than there is no need to replace the fluid because it is supposed to last the lifetime of the vehicle on this VW.

Lifetime for VW means warranty limit of 100,000 miles. Like any transmission, it needs to be changed. Since there is no drain plug, you merely 1)remove the road shield, 2)remove the four bolts holding FULL pan of fluid, 3)and carefully tip out fluid into handy preplaced container for disposal. Then clean all the filth and replace the filter pan and gasket. Finally clip the filler fitting plastic so it can be extricated and fill with fluid to overflow. Use the Automax fluid hand pump if you don't have the special VW Tool. Run car in idle and shift through gears for a few minutes to fill all internal passages and top of again with fluid. You're good for another 100,000 miles! (I use an american tie wrap to replace the little plastic I clipped from the VW fill plug).

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

2001 vw jetta changing trans oil


Your 2001 VW Jetta is likely equipped with a "sealed" transmission unit. There is no dipstick that you can use to measure the level of transmission fluid in sealed transmissions. Unfortunately, it's a dealer item that needs to be addressed by a qualified mechanic or at a VW dealer.

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.

How do i check the tranny fluid level in my 2001 jetta


The average consumer cannot check transmission fluid in the 2000 VW jetta. You must go to a dealership for this service. The problematic transmissions are factory sealed and touted to be 'maintenance free' with the fluid port capped by the manufacturer. The 2000 Jettas (as well as other model years) are notorious for early transmission replacement. Do not expect the VW corp to take care of any transmission issues unless you force them to.

Shop for a rebuilt transmission, or get an estimate from AAMCO for a rebuild job, but it won't be cheap. Get at least 3 estimates before you decide how to proceed. Good luck.

Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.

All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.
