Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle
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.
