Sorry folks, when VW breated the New Beetle they sealed the transmission. As such, there is no dip stick in the transmission. Unless you have noticed a fluid loss on the pavement beneath the car, your transmission should be fine. Otherwise, it's a dealer issue.

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 have a 99 vw beetle 2.0 and it will not shift until it is over 4000 rpm if it is in drive and I accelarate to 3000 or 3500 and stay it won't shift up no matter how long I hold it there, then if I go over...


Sorry to tell you, but your model Beetle is famous for transmission problems. Google 99 Beetle transmission and you will see. I think it is a dealer only job too.

2005 vw beatle trans is sliping .is this this major? or just low on fluid ? cant check it w/out a dip stick.


Yes and yes. Are you sure it doesn't have a dipstick? Engine is transverse/sideways, transmission is on driver side? Normal transmission check is; warm transmission, engine running, hold brake, shift through all gears, put back in park, engine still running, pull dispstick, wipe and check dipstick again. Should be near "warm" markings.

'99 Beetle cruise control surge and speedometer has slight flutter.Occasionally speedometer drops to zero mph and cruise will then stop working. The "surge" is so bad that you can not drive with cruise on....


I would take a blind guess and sat the speedo sensor has an issue. 99' beetle should have an 01M auto, and the speed sensor is also the dipstick for the final differental drive. search around this area of the trans for the cable and snoop around. loose at the trans ? bad connection somewhere??

How do you check fluid in transmission on 2005 beetle


With the engine running remove the transmission dipstick, usually located to the rear of the motor and should have a symbol that looks like a gear on it. Remove the dipstick, usually several feet long, wipe it off, reinsert it hold it for three seconds and remove it. It's level should be in the "safe" zone. If it's low add more, through the dipstick tube using a thin neck funnel, it will not take much at a time and should fill very quickly and shouldn't take much. Try not to overfill it.

If it's ok check the fluid's color, it should be pink or even golden. Smell it to see if it smells burnt and put a little in your fingers rolling it around to feel for grit. If all is well there still could be a problem that has not been damaging enough to the transmission that should be checked by a technician.

Good luck to you
