is it possible to check the gearbox fluid levels - tdisline_8.jpg
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

Does this use a hydraulic clutch?

If it's cable operated it may be a faulty adjuster mechanism.

SOURCE: auto gearbox

if it has a dip stick under the bonnet you need to have the engine running with the box in neutral then dip the oil
if the engine is warm then it should read around the top mark, if the engine us cold then it should rear around the lower mark
if there is no dip stick then there is no way of checking the level and you will need to drain the box and re fill with the correct ammount through the gearbox breather on the top

SOURCE: how do i check the fluid levels in a vw polo 1998

If you have an 01M 4spd automatic transmission which uses VAG part # G 052 162 A2 ATF only. I'll suggest buy the seal and filter kit from VW and uses 3.2qt when you replace the fluid. Topping off require a different procedure. A VAG 1552 Scan tool is required when correcting the ATF level measured by reading temperature of the fluid.

SOURCE: how do you check automatic gearbox fluid level

you should have a dip stick under the hood similar to the engine dipstick,normally you check the oil level when the transmission is at normal running temperature with the engine running & the gearshift in PARK or NEUTRAL, but make sure the handbrake is on securely......hope this helps......cheers

Tip

Where do I put my transmission fluid in an automatic transmission/Automatic...


Most, if not all vehicles require the fluid in an automatic transmission, or automatic gearbox, to be added through the dipstick tube (the tube where the fluid level is checked from).
It more often than not requires the use of a small funnel. Most service station attendants are trained in this procedure.
Always use the fluid type recommended by the manufacturer, and fill to the proper level. Since the fluid is added through the dipstick tube it may take some time to get an accurate reading, due to the residue left by the new fluid.
Transmissions and Gearboxes give a more accurate reading after the vehicle is warm, or has been running/driven for at least fifteen minutes.

If this has been of any assistance, kindly rate it accordingly. Thank you.

Tranmisson is taking to long to shift out of first gear


automatic gearboxes are not something you can service yourself.
the only thing to do is check the transmission fluid level as low fluid level can cause this. there is normally a separate dipstick for this.
if the level is correct it will need to be checked by an automatic gearbox specialist.

Gearbox overheated refer to handbook?


Transmission fluid has become too hot. Check the transmission fluid level (dip stick on passenger side near firewall), then check the transmission cooler, cooling pipes and fittings for leaks or breaks. For other possibilities check www.rangerovers.net .

The gearbox is not shifting good


I will assume this is a manual transmission. With that said I would have your fluid level checked in it. Frequently poor or hard shifting is caused by low levels or wrong fluid. In your case I would have the level checked or possibly changed if it has never been done.
