SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: removing a 2005 2.0 jetta volkswagen battery

Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight.  Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet.  Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down.  Next disconnect battery cables.  Hold those out of the way.  pull battery forward and up.  Install in reverse order.  Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules.  Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset.  This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom.  The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.

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.

Should a 2002 jetta tdi- automatic at 87,000 miles


That specific transmission is known for failure. Sometimes it's premature failure (in your case) and sometimes they have 150k miles, but that specific automatic transmission will always fail.
There are plenty of stories online about premature failure of the 01M VW transmission...

Please advise how to change 1999 VW Jetta ATF? I


If there is no dipstick, chances are you have what is known as an 01M transmission. The fluid CAN be changed, but it is a bit more involved than normal. I STRONGLY suggest you read the Bentley manual or better yet, Google "Dan's VW page". Good Luck

Automatic transmission for 2002 jetta tdi , slips


You have the infamous Volkswagen 01M automatic transmission. Rumor is, every single one of these tranny's will fail -it's only a matter of time. You may not necessarily need a new or rebuilt tranny. Do some searching at www.tdiclub.com - there's a ton of info over there - those guys are extremely knowledgeable.
