Question about 2004 Volkswagen Passat
There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u
will find on older american cars.
The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.
The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.
