Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Volkswagen Golf III 2.0, not a turbo, and I was wondering what type of transmission fluid it takes. It's a manual, so before I get under it and take it apart to check the fluid level, I want to know what weight of fluid/ gear lube it takes. Thank you!

Use 2 liters of synthetic gear oil with a rating type of API G50 SAE 75W-90 - any brand will do.

My volkswagen golf v6 Automatic gear transmission is not more selecting what can I do cos there is not expart where I am pls help me.

I am a VW pro! Do you mean it wont change gears? A lot of VW's are having this same problem. One of three things could be the cause. Sensor on trans, trans control module, or the valve body in the transmission. When VW first made these cars, the transmission fluid was "suppose" to be lifetime fluid. These transmissions are sealed and have no dipstick. There is however a red plug right bellow the starter. You can open that cap and remove the plug under it. "Pull straight up while giving a slight turn". If you have a "clean" clear tube from maybe a fish air pump, you can slide that down the tube and pull it back out. you can smell it to see if it is burnt. The fluid is actually a type of mineral oil and CAN NOT BE MIXED with any other type of fluid! If the fluid is black, it will need replaced! The fluid should be changed every 50,000 miles part number G052162A2. Odds are, you will need to change the valve body inside the transmission

Vw golf Mk3 VR6 gearbox/cooling system

I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.
