the trans fluid can only be serviced through a standpipe in the pan with car in the air and trans at an exact temp,<needs to be on a monitor computer> it also uses special fluid not any of the normal fluids. this fluid is suposed to be "lifetime" fluid that doesn't need servicing unless there is a leak or a trans failure.

Check stik should be on left side of engine. Remove and check. You will need a long spout to add fluid. .

the transmission and its control unit must be compatible. So, no, you should find the same code transmission.

SOURCE: cannot find dipstick to check transmission fluid

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.

SOURCE: cant find where to fill transmission fluid on my

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 .

Where to put in transmission fluid for a 2001 vw passat v6


Most of these v w have a plug you can unscrew and then there are those you may want to take to a service department and have them check and fill the transmission fluid because there are sometimes a certain procedure to follow when checking the transmission fluid depending on the vehicle.

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.

How do i put in transmission oil 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.

I need to know where is the dip stick to check the transmission fluid on a 2003 vw passat


There is no automatic transmission dip stick on your car. There is a long procedure to check and fill and you will need special fluid from VW. Better left to the dealer. If you want the procedure let me know.

How do you check transmition fluid in a 2001 volkswegn cabrio


They are a sealed transmission, no level check available. You will need to take it to a trans specialist or maybe even the VW dealer if there is a trans issue.
