Is it an automatic transmission or manual. Most new vehicles require low weight oils like 5w20 or less like Automatic Transmission oil, If you added gear oil you might have already damaged the transmission, IF you are able to drain all the fuild out, and replace the Transmission Filter and Gasket you might be able to salvage it.

Not knowning the reason for you adding this oil to the transmission i can not offer any more help.

Hi plz asst me, I have jaguar x type 1999 model, I was change transmission oil in the gearbox, and now the gearbox not working. Plz I need asst


Hi, changing transmission oil can't cause your car not having gears. If your car is automatic transmission your car must be on idling and check level of transmission oil. If the level of oil is low you will not have gears.

Hi Val,first of all the gearboxes for all vw are made in the same factory in germany and if one model of car was giving trouble the whole range would suffer.i.e.SEAT/SKODA/AUDI/VW.I have not heard of any specific cars giving trouble.but to answer your problem,get the linkage checked by a dealer as these tend to wear and a specific tool is required to set them up properly.and while they are under the car get them to change the oil for the gearbox.you do not need to get a NEW gearbox as a reconditioned one is MUCH cheaper.if you want to down that road.(you will still need to get the linkage set up).
hope this sorts it out for you.regards. geoff,England.

I have a VW passat estate on a 51 plate,when the engine is cold the gear change is fine yet the further I go the harder it is to change gear


I experience the same problem in my '03 passat TDI130 5dr. Gearchange when hot became increasingly baulky.

VW Checked this out, linkages, clutch hydraulics etc were fine.

Solution was to have the Gearbox Oil changed. This cost about £65 and was using VW052 transmission fluid.
