If you have a dipstick, it goes in there--use a funnel. If no dipstick, please get back to me with model and year info.

2001 maxima se slips when shifting into 2nd and 3rd only if driving easy. Seems fine under hard accel. It revs to 3500rpm before it grabs. Makes it hard to drive easy. Any Ideas? Thankyou Very Much, Jon

make sure you have the proper fluid level and that the tran fluid is the correct type ... you could have a clogged intake filter .. thats inside the transmition and is normally changed when fluid is changed .. however if the fluid has never been changed then it becomes a problem when you do .. the new fluid can wash deposits off of surfaces that end up clogging passagways and the filter .. so there is another way .. you can have the transmition "flushed" .. they force a cleaning fluid thru the tranny and torque converter .. that washes out gunk .. that service is a little over $100 many places .. however you have to make a judgment call here .. your 2001 may have enough miles that the transmition is at end of life ... they wear out usually before 150,000 miles .. sometimes well before that ... you can sometimes tell if there is damage by looking at the fluid .. if its dark or smells burned then thats a sign of a damaged transmition .. if your fluid level is low then thats the lowest cost repair .. just put in the proper amount (check running in park for most cars) ... the cleaning wont help if there is damaged parts but will if its just clogged up .. a mechanic can help you make that judgment .. you will have to do something soon because whatever is the problem it will only get worse until it quits altogether, that might leave yoiu standed .. ..that can only increase the cost of repairs and limit your selection of repair shops .. good luck ..

Jetta 1999 transmission fluid

the fluid goes in through a plug in the top of the auto it is not recommended that you check it as it take a particular type of fluid that only VW uses and the transmission is not ment to be serviced.
if the car is having trouble taking of the transmition might be about to fail our it might be low on fluid sagest to your boy friend that he checks for leaks and if he find one take it into VW to get repaird.
unfortunatly these cars are expensive to fix and your average machanical minded person dose not have the corect service tools to do so
