Remove the plug, #1, in the bottom of the oil pan and see if any fluid comes out. If it does then it is full. If it does not come out then you need to add some. The transmission fluid temp needs to be at 95-113 degrees. If you need to add fluid do it in the tube, #3 .

I'm not an expert on Volkswagens, but on all the cars I've ever owned, transmission fluid was added directly down the tube that houses the transmission fluid dip stick. Remove the dip stick and use a funnel with a narrow opening. I hope this helps you out.

My car is a 2002 Volkswagon Passat. Just of recent, it jerks when I engage the gear from park!!


Check your transmission fluid level on the transmission dip stick while the engine is running. When fluid is low it results in a snatching at gears especially when engaging 'drive'. Add the correct fluid (check with VW on the correct type for your specific car) via the dip stick tube. Do not fill beyond the maximum. If you do not correct this the constant snatching will eventually cause the splined end of the input shaft to shear off and this will be an expensive repair.

I accidently drained the auto trans when changing my oil on a 2001 passat.How do I get the fluid back in the trans?


Right next to the plug that you removed that drained the transmission fluid is another plug, which is used to fill the transmission with fluid. You will need some type of hand pump and a reservoir to hold the transmission fluid. Parts stores sell a small pump that screws onto the top of gallon sized gear lube bottles. This would be ideal, since it has the hoses necessary to transfer the fluid from the reservoir or bottle, to the transmission. Pump fluid into the transmission until a little begins to run out of the fill hole. replace the plug in the transmission and start the engine, let it warm up, then move the gearshift thru all the gears. Put the transmission in neutral and check the fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. If you decide to replace the fluid with fresh fluid, use only fluid designated for your vehicle to avoid damage to the transmission.

Where is the transmission dipstick on a volkswagon passat station wagon 1998 auto.Ive looked every where.


Unfortunately, there is not a transmission fluid dipstick on these cars. The designed to be "sealed for life". The only way to measure fluid level is to drain, measure, and refill to recommended volume using approved fluids.

How do I put in transmission fluid in a volkswagon 2002 passat?


This car has no dip stick. The car must be lifted on a level surface. Make sure you get the correct fluid.The temperature of the fluid should be at 99 degrees F, a drive around the block should do, or an infrared thermometer can be used to check the temp through the check window, after removing the rubber plug. The fluid should be topped off at this temp by injecting it through a vaccum pump. A small hand pump is fine. Too much and it will spill out. If filled when cold, it will expand and cause damage to gaskets. Replace plug, and ready to go.
Good Luck.

Transmission fluid


The motor doesn't have to come out but a proper transmission drain and refill requires the VagCom diagnostic software to monitor transmission temperatures (it's supposed to be done with the fluid at a particular temperature). You'll have to flatbed the car there though - you don't want to drive the car with the transmission improperly filled. Of course, you can drain all the oil out and replace it yourself - no worries there - but don't drive the car without the transmission being filled properly.
