Well, I would not mess with it, but it does sound like you are on the right track to check the fluid, it is about all you can do, short of pulling the tranny and checking the torque converter.. If there is no dipstick, which I suspect there is not, other wise you would have been checking the fluid already, there are 2 plugs on the right side of the tranny, the lower one is the level, and the upper one is the filler, pull the lower plug, if fluids seeps out, it is full, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up with the recommended fluid, there are about 15 different kinds, get the right one. Fill it till it seeps out the bottom plug, plug it back up and you should be all set, as far as fluids go, if it still crashes into gear, it is a major, shift solenoid, torque converter, lockup thingy, I don't know what it is called, but tranny shops love jobs like this. Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 volkwagon beetle 2.0 that needs a water pump so i buy the water pump install it put everything back together and put water inside then it just spilled out. tried to start it and now the


you should did your home work before removed old water pump most vw engines water pump is part of the timing belt assembly so when time to replace around 80k miles you should order complete timing belt kit which includes water pump with it.
so after you finish up if you didnt try to hard to run engine you may or may not damage any piece from your valve train!!even with all proper parts you have on your hand you still need high cost speciality tools to complete timing belt replacement on that engine recommendetion is tow your vehicle to mechanic shop and let them do it for you it will save you time and money!
good luck!

Wouldn't be a bad idea to also put on a set of good quality spark plug wires while you're at it.

I think I'd also invest in a new air filter.

Hopefully this will take care of your fuel consumption issue.

My daughter is buying a 1999 VW Beetle and the AC is not working, the driver side window will not go down and the buttons that opens the trunk and fuel door will not work. Will these be really expensive to...


I have a friend with a 1999 Beetle. The Window was a pain, ended up taking it a shop. 285 at $90 per hour labor, saved an hour because I had taken apart the door.

AC not working at all? Likley the AC Controller (475) or the blower motor regulator (225).

Wiring is also bad in the one your looking at likely. And wiring jobs are a pain.

It will need a new timing belt at 90K for 600-800. DIY will run you 200.

I am fairly competent with car repair and can usually fix most things myself, but I trust others with wiring issues and computer issues.

Skip that car.

The Beetles are basically good vehicles. What engine do you have? If you take good care of it you should get lots of fun driving from it. Where are you located?? I might be able to recommend a shop if I knew where you were.
