VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.

    Where does the transmission fluid go


    The transmission should have a dip stick. It may be hard to find but its there. With the car running check the fluid level. If it is low than you will need a skinny funnal and remove the dip stick and install your fluid there.

    How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.


    if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
    if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.

    HOW DO I CHECK THE OIL IN MY 2001 SATURN L-300 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION


    There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
    You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
    If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

    You will have to raise the vehicle and support with jack stands.
    Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid. Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
    Replace and tighten the plug.
    Good luck.
    Regards,
    .
