Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
I don't know what you did, are you sure it was the oil drain plug and not the transmission? Was it the dipstick that told you you added too much oil? How much is too much? The vw doesn't have a pan for the oil to sump in, it is a splash type engine, the crank rides in an oil bath and splashes all over everything, It also has a pump to get the oil into the rockers, the drain plug is in the middle of the engine. The tranny drain plug is back a ways, You should have 2 plugs on the side of the tranny, one is for level and the other is a filler, pull th ebottom one, if oil seeps out it is ful, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up with 90 weight for standard or tranny fluid for automatic. Get that taken care of, you could be riding around on a hot tranny, no oil. I pulled the plug on my truck one day to change the gear oil, and nothing came out, oops. No wonder it was whining like a freight train.

Some of them have an oil plug at the front of the pan, as well as the regular one. You have to drain them both. The front one only holds a quart or less.
