My automatic passat 1.8 T automatic tiptronic 2002 model started jerking when driving from a traffic light and driving up an incline it started to rev high when i press the accellarator . i have changed...


I have the same 2002 Passat with Tiptronic transmission and have changed the transmission fluid as well and had smoother transmission shifts. I never had the engine rev high when accelerating, however. You mentioned driving up an incline. Perhaps when changing the transmission fluid you didn't add enough. The procedure for adding transmission fluid is very critical for proper fluid level. There is a large hex plug (I think 17mm) in the bottom of the transmission pan that if removed, no fluid should come out if the car is level and the fluid is at or below 113 degrees F, and the car is RUNNING in Park. That's because there's a riser tube in the hole where the hex plug was removed that rises up to where the top of the fluid level should be under certain conditions mentioned below. DO NOT GO UNDER A CAR, OR LET ANYONE ELSE GO UNDER A CAR, UNLESS YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH YOU TAKING YOUR OWN SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. IF YOU PERFORM THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE, YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK! Let's talk about how to drain the old fluid. Run the engine in PARK to warm up the transmission fluid to a temperature that won't burn you. To drain out the fluid, you must remove the quantity (27) Torx 27 (T27) cap blots from the rim of the transmission pan and drop the pan. I highly suggest replacing the filter and pan gasket. I used an AMSOIL recommended ATF transmission fluid (go to the AMSOIL website) instead of the very expensive VW OEM transmission fluid. I have had no problems with the Amsoil fluid in my 2002 and 1999 Passats with over 100K miles on the Amsoil fluid between the 2 cars. When adding fluid, start with NOT running car engine, make sure car is level (use a magnetic level on the transmission pan both front to back and side to side) and then add fluid with a syringe or gravity feed up into the riser tube until fluid overflows out hole. Now, if that's all you did with your transmission fluid change then you will be low on fluid! More fluid is needed! Next, have someone turn on engine and WITH THEIR FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND THE EMERGENCY BRAKE SET AND NO ONE UNDER THE CAR go through the gears slowly (about 5-10 seconds per gear) and then leave in PARK, still with the engine running. The engine has to be running to keep the torque converter full of transmission fluid. Now, add more fluid as described below and wait for fluid to overflow out the hole all while the fluid is at a theoretical 113 degrees F, readable with a VW VAG diagnostic tool or a Ross Tech VAG equivalent, which I now own, but not when I changed fluid. So, what I did is use my hand on the bottom of the pan and estimated what 113 degrees F was. (This "human temperature gauge" procedure worked well for me at the time and both cars have been shifting very well ever since.) THEN, WITH THE ENGINE STILL RUNNING AND IN PARK, REINSTALL THE 17MM PLUG IN THE TRANSMISSION PAN. You now have the correct transmission fluid level in the transmission! I hope this helps you and others! Remember, SAFETY FIRST!

Cant find where to fill transmission fluid on my 2001 volkswagon passat


I'm not an expert on Volkswagens, but on all the cars I've ever owned, transmission fluid was added directly down the tube that houses the transmission fluid dip stick. Remove the dip stick and use a funnel with a narrow opening. I hope this helps you out.

Where to add transmission fluid


The filler tube is a little shorter than what we're used to. It may have a blue handle grip. It is located at the bell housing, back about 6-8 inches towards the driver's side fenderwell. Please make certain that the vehicle is on a level surface, this is more important with this transverse engine set-up than the good ole days of straight forward facing engines. Good Luck, and Thank You, Dana

Transmission fluid


Check stik should be on left side of engine. Remove and check. You will need a long spout to add fluid. .

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.

The gears are slipping on my 1.9 tdi auto passat ??


this procedure is not recommended, first of all it is not gear oil. it is automatic transmission fluid. this is why VW has made it difficult for the incorrect fluid being added. also the fluid is added from the bottom of the transmission and is only added if the transmission is at a certain temperature.

Transmission fluid


The motor doesn't have to come out but a proper transmission drain and refill requires the VagCom diagnostic software to monitor transmission temperatures (it's supposed to be done with the fluid at a particular temperature). You'll have to flatbed the car there though - you don't want to drive the car with the transmission improperly filled. Of course, you can drain all the oil out and replace it yourself - no worries there - but don't drive the car without the transmission being filled properly.
