I have a 2000 beetle turbo and just notices it is leaking oil from around the plug which is tight and seeping transmission fluid. Is this going to be a costly fix?

2000 chevy metro leaks transmission fluid


Yea! A Metro owner. Welcome. Well, you have such a big, burly wrap-around engine in there, it's gonna be hard to see the...lol, just kidding.
So, it's an automatic, I presume? There aren't that many places for them to leak, fortunately. The obvious places are the pan gasket for the bottom pan on the transmission/transaxle case, the two cooling lines coming out of the case and going to front of car to a fluid cooler either mounted in front of the radiator or in the radiator assembly itself, and the two drive axe seals. There is a hidden seal on the front mainshaft, but if it is leaking, fluid would come out on the lower plate between the transaxle and the rear of engine. The plate may be or have an inspection cover to remove, but the fluid would be dripping out the very bottom there and fluid would be present inside the inspection cover.
That should cover the main leak prone areas. Sometimes a dipstick tube's O-ring may fail and oil seeps out around the tube.
Good luck with the metro. Once you find the leak, it should be pretty apparent how to fix it. Installing driveaxle seals would be hardest, or most involved.

2000 VW new Beetle uses a lot of oil, but has no leaks, oil fouls sparkplugs


Do you have the turbo model? If so you could have a bad turbo. You may also have bad valve seals or piston rings. If you have a turbo you can remove the hose or pipe off of the outlet side of your turbo between the turbo and the intake manifold. If there is oil in it your turbo is leaking and will need repaired.

Added a little too much oil but when i took out the plug to drain some out, no oil came out. Why is this?


I don't know what you did, are you sure it was the oil drain plug and not the transmission? Was it the dipstick that told you you added too much oil? How much is too much? The vw doesn't have a pan for the oil to sump in, it is a splash type engine, the crank rides in an oil bath and splashes all over everything, It also has a pump to get the oil into the rockers, the drain plug is in the middle of the engine. The tranny drain plug is back a ways, You should have 2 plugs on the side of the tranny, one is for level and the other is a filler, pull th ebottom one, if oil seeps out it is ful, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up with 90 weight for standard or tranny fluid for automatic. Get that taken care of, you could be riding around on a hot tranny, no oil. I pulled the plug on my truck one day to change the gear oil, and nothing came out, oops. No wonder it was whining like a freight train.

You most likely have the 01M 4-speed. There is no way for us common folk to check or change the fluid on this trans. You can't find the fluid in any parts store. The dealer needs to have the car connected to a VAG computer to check the trans. If it don't leak, if it has never even shown signs of seeping then its probably not low. The average life is somewhere around 160,000 but results may vary.

2001 vw beetle tdi diesel. How do I check the automatic transmission fluid? Also, my mechanic says he can't change transmission fluid or do a flush because there are no drain or fill plugs and no pan? What...


VW automatic transmissions require a special filling tool to fill the transmissions using gravity. They also never recommend a fluid or filter replacement unless a problem is evident. (a leak or shifting problem). They also use a special brown synthec oil that i believe is only available at VW. My advice is to go to a Volkswagen dealer. I'll still tell you how it works. To check the level the vehicle transmission must be cold (not driven at least 8-9 hrs). With a scanner plugged to check fluid temperature in the transmission. RFemove the red cap on the little tube. It's clipped. Once the red cap is removed the black cap can be pulled out. This is the fill tube. This is where the fluid is added using the fill tool. Start the car and remove the 5mm allen screw which looks like a drain. Inside this is a little tube that goes upwards like 3 cm in the pan. (when the oil heats up it expands and leaks out here) With the car running in park, if oil runs out of the pan hole before 35 deg. c there is too much. Let it drain. If no oil leaks at 35 deg. c it's because there is not enough and oil has to be added while the temperature is going up. At 35-40 deg. c oil should spill out ,reinstall the 5 mm allen with the seal, reinstall the filler plug and red cap lock. If the oil is over 26 deg. c before starting your better off waiting till it cools off to have time to add or let drain depending. Strange procedure but the right one.

Atf fluid leaking not sure from where how do i go about fixing it?


pull your truck on car ramps, get under it and take a rag and whip where you see any kind of fluid. watch to see where the fluid comes from. if its redish color its transmission fluid. it could be oil, you migh want to check that. make sure your oil filter is tight, no oil is leaking from that. check your plugs on your transmission and oil. it will be a bolt on both. make sure their tight! feel free to write back!
