Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Remove gearbox from vw passat automatic . It is a 1999 model. Transmission fluid is leaking, dont know where the fluid is leaking from. Will drive a short distance prior to the automatic shift not responding. The mechanics have quoted a hefty price so I want to remove it manually and then get them to fix the problem (as it may only be the pump? or a leak in a hose?) and get the mechanics to re-install the gearbox. i need help on how to remove the gearbox. Please help!

This is not a weekend mechanics type job because you could damage something else taking it out.best advice is to fit a manual gearbox which here in spain you could buy from a accident damaged car with the flywheel and clutch and starter motor for around 300€ need to change the drive shafts as well i think

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:

Hi!!

Take the measuring stick from sleeve, place a funnel into sleeve (two dollars at your favorite auto parts) and add tranny fluid to level. Do not overfill.

There is a small drain plug that needs to be removed, the car level, suspended on Jack's, monitor the tranny fluid temperature with obd2 tool, engine started from cold, , the fluid will ooze out of the open plug hole at proper temperature. Use a new plug when done topping the fluid. Intricate task

1998 VW Passat How do you check and fill transmission?


There is a drain plug on bottom of transmission and you need a lift. Vehicle needs to be lifted, and ran to operating temperature. With vehicle running, level, and at operating temperature, remove drain plug and fluid should steadly leak out. To fill you need a pump to pump fluid in from bottom. Thanks

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.

I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.
