Where is the drain and fill plug on the transmission of a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle automatic transmission

To drain the fluid just drop the pan and drain it that way. Replace the transmission filter and then reinstall the transmission pan. Find the dip stick tube and fill the fluid through that. I'm not sure what engine/transmission you have, so you'll have to look in your owners manual and see what the amount is.
Measure the fluid you drained and match it to the mount the manual and make sure its close.
When filling the fluid put in all but 1/2 quart. Start the car and get it up to operating temperature. Place the car in neutral and read the fluid on the dip stick, add more fluid if needed.

Good luck

Why would there be transmisson fluid leaking out of radiator?

Radiators on automatics have a separate reservoir for transm. fluid cooling purposes. Didn't you remove the transm. fluid cooling lines from the radiator-a feed line to the radiator and a return line from radiator to the transmission? They are small steel lines that connect on the end of the radiator.

Where in the engine does the transmission fluid go?


The transmission fluid is refilled thru the dipstick tube, you need to use a small funnel in order to do so. Do not over fill transmission.

How do i put in transmission oil 2004 volkswagen passat

There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u will find on older american cars.

The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.

The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.

I can not find where to check automatic transmission fluid in my 2003 spectra

I assume you have an owners manual or you can get one on line. Under the section for sevicing, you should be told where the auto transm. fluid goes in.

HINT: Look under the car find the transmission. the tube coming off the trany goes to the top of the engine. That is where you add the fluid

How much fluid do i put in after a fluid and filter change transm

If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter it will probably take aprox. 4 maybe 5 quarts. I would add 4 and check it befor adding more . Just dont actually put it into gear until you know the fluid level is correct. Make sure to give the fluid enough time to get out of the dipstick tube so you get a accurate reading

I like to ck transm oil

In any Jetta you are not able to ckeck transmission fluid when the manufacture builds them the fluid is garanteed for the life of the car. However you can change the fluid but it is very expensive about 40.00 per quart of reccomended fluid and if you do change the fluid the transmission filter is inside the transmission but it is not very hard to get to. If you have any more questions let us know.
