Where can I locate the transmission fluid level on my 2003 jetta 2.0L gas


There is a small allen head plug on the bottom of transmission (6 mm).This where you you check the fluid .The transmission has to be at least 130 f and the engine idling in park on level ground.Fluid should drip from the hole if trans is full and you must use the factory vw fluid ( @ 25.00 quart) to fill.There is a 10 mm allen head plug on the top of transmission near the linkage that is the fill point.Good luck.These plugs strip out very easily , use the correct size and a high quality tool.

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 to add gear oil to transmission on a 1995 vw jetta manual trans


you must get under the car, there will be 2 large bolts that should jump out from the rest. the lower 1 is the drain, the upper 1 is for adding fluid. Manual trans dont have fill necks or dip sticks under the hood like automatic transmissions.

Transmission fluid for vw jetta


Go to volkswagen for the fluid.
I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission? if so any aftermarket fluid will make short work of your transmission.

if you are talking about a manual transaxle..then I hear good things about Redlines' MT fluid

Transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto


VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

the automatic transmission fluid must be checked by a VW dealer. there is no dipstick. the transmission fluid must be moitored b y a scan tool at a certain temp. If the incorrect fluid is added, transmission failure may occur. Recommend a good VW dealer for this issue.
