The transmissions on the VW New Beetles are sealed, and there is no dip stick. Sorry, it's a dealer issue if there's a problem with the transmission.

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.


Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

Where do u put transmission fluid in


Remove the transmission dip stick and add the fluid to the transmission through the dip stick tube.You can purchase a funnel to help pour the fluid in. Add in small amounts, run the vehicle,shift through the gears and check level with engine and transmission warmed up. Be careful not to overfill. Hope this helps

When the car shifts from first to second it jerks


Based on the information that has been provided, the first thing I would check would be your transmission fluid level. You need to check your automotive manual to determine the type of transmission fluid to be used, and how to determine if it is low. Many cars have a dip stick towards the back of the motor. My dodge truck has a dip stick with a yellow handle. The dip stick will have a safe mark on it. Most cars have to be running when you check the fluid level. The engine and transmission need to be warm. Some Dodge transmissions need to be in neutral when the fluid level is checked.

The only thing I can say for sure is that you need to consult your manual for how to check the fluid level.

If the fluid level checks out then the transmission will have to be serviced by a shop. It could be hardware failure, or as simple as a clogged transmission filter.

Were i chek transmition oil


On the back of the engine towards the firewall, you'll find another dip stick colored red just like the engine oil which is colored yellow. Check the transmission oil with the engine running and the transmission oil at operating temperature. Pull it the dip stick out and wipe it clean and take the second reading, there will be markings on the dip stick to where the transmission fluid should be and never over fill your transmission, thats just as bad as having not enough transmission fluid.
