Volkswagon says the transmission fluid is supposed to be good for the life of the car and therefore they make no provision for adding fluid. There is a breather with a plastic cap on the side of the transmission that you can use to fill the unit. There is no dipstick, so to find out if it is at the proper level VW has a tube into the pan at the drainplug which automatically levels the fluid. You fill at the breather and after removing the drainplug wait until it stops leaking or dripping. It is then at the right level. The excess fluid in the pan overflows the tube and drains out. Sounds complicated but I hope my crude explanation helps!

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

How can i check the level of my transmission fluid on a 1996 volkswagon jetta gls?


Assuming it is an automatic. With engine idling, put transmission thru all gears, put back in park, keep engine running, check dipstick for tranny. If it is a manual then you have to crawl under car and remove upper "fill" plug on gearbox, fluid will be up to that level. NOTE: unless your tranny leaks it should never be low!

How do I check the automatic transmission fluid?


Volkswagen Jetta's automatic trans. have a sealed transmission. A tool is used to expell and replenish fluid. Only volkswagen or an ASE certified tech (Specialized volks. or audi Techs) have this tool.

Transmission fluid for vw jetta


Go to volkswagen for the fluid.
I am assuming you are talking about an automatic transmission? if so any aftermarket fluid will make short work of your transmission.

if you are talking about a manual transaxle..then I hear good things about Redlines' MT fluid

Where is transmission solenoid located on 1995 vw jetta !!!!


Inside the transmission case above the pan. You should probably let a transmission mechanic handle this one.

Were do you put tranmisson oil ia a 01 jettA?


It depends on if it is a manual or automatic transmission. For the manual transmission, there is a 17mm allen plug in the side of it. Crawl under car and take the plug out. You can buy a fluid pump for about $20 at an auto parts store and the 17mm allen wrench is about $10 at sears. It is pretty easy on the manual transmission, hardest part for me was finding the 17mm allen wrench.
Automatic transmission?? you cannot put the transmission fluid in by yourself you have to take it either to a V.W. dealer or someone who services these types of transmissions the fluid has to be pumped in if you notice there is no dipstick to check the fluid level that's because they use this probe the stick into your transmission to see how much fluid you have the probe costs about $1500 dollars expensive yes keep in mind it will cost about $20 a quart the reason why I know this is because my brother is having problems with his transmission on his 2001 Jetta if you have any more questions, keep me posted be glad to help.
