    hi you can do this job. but should do with precaution. donot open the filling cover without stopping the engine. make sure no one starts the engine when you are filling. try to avoid adding fluids always replace the fluid. if you are adding there is no use of new oil it gets contaminated due to dirt present in the previous oil. while changing first drain the old oil fully. and flush the space with new oil. dirts gets carried away when you flush. and then close the drain and fill with new oil. if my answer was useful please vote

Unless you have a VAG 1552 scan tool then yes and you wouldn't be asking this question. It measures the transmission's internal fluid temperature (expansion fo fluid due to heat) which determines the level of the fluid. Keep in mind this will be a good time to replace the transmission filter which is available as a part and not a kit. The pan gasket, an O-ring, the filler plug and it's security seal, I wish it was sold as kit. Don't forget the VW transmission fluid for the 01M auto gearbox part no. G 052 162 A2. I've used this parts and I know what I have and it works.

This needs a rating, thank you and good luck.

My 2000 Beetle is jerking when it changes gears. I had a transmission put in about 14 months ago. I had it looked at a the local VW business and they told me that I needed a transmission. My machanic said...


when it jerks during gear changes it could be a couple of things.

First of all, check the fluid level in the automatic transmission.

Secondly, check the mounts for the engine that they're tight and secure and if they are then

Thirdly, ask the transmission shop if the torque converter is bad in it.

The torque converter could be locked up somehow causing this jerking and I wouldn't be surprised if the transmission shop lists a recall on it.

Actually, even if there is NO recall on it, tell the transmission shop that put the transmission in to check it out, and if possible rectify it under warranty.

I wish you luck in getting this fixed correctly.

Where can I find my 2000 vw transmission dip stick?


There is no Dipstick. Checking the trans level can only be done with VW software to read out the trans oil temp & removing the 5mm plug on the bottom of the trans pan. There is a hidden filler behind the front guard that will accept fluid. The trans is full when the fluid escapes the bottom hole after adding it to the filler at the correct temperature. Not for the faint hearted.

2001 vw beetle tdi diesel. How do I check the automatic transmission fluid? Also, my mechanic says he can't change transmission fluid or do a flush because there are no drain or fill plugs and no pan? What...


VW automatic transmissions require a special filling tool to fill the transmissions using gravity. They also never recommend a fluid or filter replacement unless a problem is evident. (a leak or shifting problem). They also use a special brown synthec oil that i believe is only available at VW. My advice is to go to a Volkswagen dealer. I'll still tell you how it works. To check the level the vehicle transmission must be cold (not driven at least 8-9 hrs). With a scanner plugged to check fluid temperature in the transmission. RFemove the red cap on the little tube. It's clipped. Once the red cap is removed the black cap can be pulled out. This is the fill tube. This is where the fluid is added using the fill tool. Start the car and remove the 5mm allen screw which looks like a drain. Inside this is a little tube that goes upwards like 3 cm in the pan. (when the oil heats up it expands and leaks out here) With the car running in park, if oil runs out of the pan hole before 35 deg. c there is too much. Let it drain. If no oil leaks at 35 deg. c it's because there is not enough and oil has to be added while the temperature is going up. At 35-40 deg. c oil should spill out ,reinstall the 5 mm allen with the seal, reinstall the filler plug and red cap lock. If the oil is over 26 deg. c before starting your better off waiting till it cools off to have time to add or let drain depending. Strange procedure but the right one.

How to add Auto Trans fluid to 1999 VW Beetle & what kind of fluid


Been there tried that. The unit is more or less sealed. You will need to go to a VW dealer to have the fluid checked and added, if required. Be very careful, there's an entry port on the top of the transmission that some cables/wires go through. If you break this seal there is no simple fix. It costs about $700 to have it replaced by the dealer.

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.
