SOURCE: what type of motor oil should i use for a 2001

There's a few that you can use - but in general

Use Full Synthetic only for the TDIs...

There's various schools of thought after that in terms of 5x 30, 5w 40, even 0w 30 or 0w40

I've been using Castrol Synthetic 5w 30. The original specs for my 2000 Jetta TDI may have been for 5w40 oil formulated for diesels - but with the Synthetics now I think the 5w30 is felt to be the best in terms of what works best in the Turbo

You can probably go every 5,000 to 7,500 miles between changes - a good thing since the synthetic oils are more expensive

by the way, some also suggest changing the fuel filter at every oil change. I'm thinking that's a bit much but others may disagree... maybe ever 15,000 miles for me

SOURCE: Does my 2001 Jetta TDI have to use a special type

Automatic or manual? They use normal fluids, unlike Audi's (powersteering) where some needed the synthetic green stuff or else the seals would go. There are really good synthetic fluids available that are much better and last longer. Check out the VWvortex forum for lots of great VW info.

2001 vw jetta changing trans oil


Your 2001 VW Jetta is likely equipped with a "sealed" transmission unit. There is no dipstick that you can use to measure the level of transmission fluid in sealed transmissions. Unfortunately, it's a dealer item that needs to be addressed by a qualified mechanic or at a VW dealer.

Transmission shifting shifts only at high rpm

THE 5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find one threaded plug on below surface, (follow red arrow in the picture below). This is for emptying.

The oil level threaded plug is placed on the car front lateral automatic gearbox surface, (follow yellow arrow in the picture below).

The filling oil plug is placed on the upper automatic gearbox surface, (follow green arrow in the picture below).

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Automatic gearbox oil capacity: 2,5 liter. Only ATF with VW designation may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: VW G 052 990 A2
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.

Weird! I have put in too much oil in to my 2001 Jetta TDI. I take off the plug and drain it, but it's still away above the full mark, and now, no oil comes out of the pan! Never seen anything like it....


are you sure your checking the motor oil level with the motor oil dipstick and not the trans dipstick,or your removing the wrong drain plug and not draining the motor oil but another oil like transmission.

Transmission oil should be replaced every 45,000 to 60,000 miles/ 60,000 to 100,000 KM to ensure the transmission will last a long time.

My 2002 Jetta TDI will not always go into reverse. When this happens I put it in 1st then back to reverse and many times it goes right in reverse. It happens whether it is cold or warmed.
