SOURCE: Where do you check oil

You don't. There are special tools and procedures. You'll have to take it to the dealer, I'm afraid. Hope this helps.

Sometimes the DSG transmission will be locked and it can only go to P N and R but not to drive.


What is DSG? Any way, either the shifter is bad or you have internal transmission problem. parking paw, parking gear, or rod is jamming.

I have a nissan 1400 champ and is leaking oil on the front part of the manual 5 speed gearbox and the rear part of the gearbox. I have replaced the crankshaft oil seal but i still have oil leaking on


There are seals on the front and rear of the transmission. If the clutch wasn't covered in engine oil, then replacing the crankshaft seal wasn't necessary. Reseal the transmission.

Gearbox oil


Hi. If this is a auto or DSG then there is no need to top up if there is no leak. A manual, there is a 17mm allen cap plug in the front of the gearbox.

I have heard that the vw autos fitted to these vans have had there problems. Vw say that the ATF never needs changing and that it is sealed unit and cant be serviced.


That's just nonsense. Auto transmission fluid always needs to be changed. I would say, around every 15,000 miles at least, depending on the vehicle. Any car manufacturer which claims their transmission fluid never needs to be changed wants you to purchase a new transmission. Yes, VWs of late have had a lot of issues with their transmissions, but then again, they recently haven't made such claims about never having to change fluid.
Their recent double clutch gearboxes however are extremely expensive on fluid changes in my opinion. If you can find an aftermarket specialist who knows their oil, then you can save a small fortune in oil. VW DSG gearbox oil is some of the most expensive on the mainstream market if you get it at the dealership.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

2006 Jetta TDI Tiptronic Maintenance


The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.
