Locate the transmission dip stick. To check on levels start the engine and put into 'park'. let it run for a minute and now check the dip stick for levels. Additional fluid can be added via the dip stick tube. I recommend adding no more than half a litre at a time and then checking the level again; all the while the engine should be running whilst in 'park' is selected on the transmission.

SOURCE: where do I check the transmission fluid in a 1996

VW's are notorious for not having a dipstick in the transmissions. The units are sealed, and can only be check by the VW dealers.

Sorry, my 1998 VW Beetle had the same problem.

I have a 2003 jetta automatic, 2.0 doen't want to move when shifted into drive unless I tap the gas pedal then it lurches forward and is fine the rest of the day.


Since there is no dipstick to check your fluid level, I recommend changing your transmission fluid and filter and make sure that it is filled to the proper level with the proper fluid. I believe the capacity is 3.2 qts. and I use Castrol Transmission Fluid for Imports. You can double check the capacity and use another brand of fluid that is compatible at your parts store. Just make sure that the fluid you get is compatible and that it is filled to the proper level. To refill your transmission there is a dipstick tube adapter on the front side of the transmission. It is just an elbow with a red or black cap that is o-ring sealed and will have a lock ring on it that you can remove with a small screwdriver. Use a funnel that has a "Measuring cup" and a hose on it so you can measure out the fluid. Hope this helps.

2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA automatic gasoline engine. shifts hard sometimes.


YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.

Where can I locate the transmission fluid level on my 2003 jetta 2.0L gas


There is a small allen head plug on the bottom of transmission (6 mm).This where you you check the fluid .The transmission has to be at least 130 f and the engine idling in park on level ground.Fluid should drip from the hole if trans is full and you must use the factory vw fluid ( @ 25.00 quart) to fill.There is a 10 mm allen head plug on the top of transmission near the linkage that is the fill point.Good luck.These plugs strip out very easily , use the correct size and a high quality tool.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

Volkswagen Jetta's automatic trans. have a sealed transmission. A tool is used to expell and replenish fluid. Only volkswagen or an ASE certified tech (Specialized volks. or audi Techs) have this tool.

Transmission fluid check on a vw jetta tdi


Never ever bring a jetta to a volkwagen dealer. They will bend you over and rape you.

All you have to do is remove the top plug with a hex wrench.
