how do you add transmission fluid to a 1996 vw jetta?
To add the transmission fluid you will first need to allow the Jetta to warm up. Once warmed up place in park, access the transmission drain plug, and then refill.
AnswerYou add the transmission fluid through the tube at the back of the engine compartment in the dipstick that says trans fluid.
the plug to add and check the transmission fluid is on the side of the transmission and only accessable from under the vehicle.
If it is an automatic transmission, you add transmission fluid with a long funnel through the dipstick opening.
pull the tranny dipstick out and add the fluid through the dipstick tube.
You add the trans fluid where the dipstick is at, if it is a manual then you will have to go under the car where the transmission is find the check level plug on the transmission loosen the plug and stick your pinky in it if fluid touches the pinky then your good if not add the fluid there!
Down the automatic transmission dipstick tube.
The same place you check it.
You add fluid through the dipstick tube. There is no cap like the oil.
THERE IS NO TRANSMISION DIP STICK ON THE VW JETTA YOU HAVE TO BRING THE CAR INTO VW SERVICE. ONLY THEY CAN CHECK AND ADD TRANSMISION FLUID
Usually you drain and replace it...;)
Transmission fluid is added through the same tube that the dip stick fits into. Remove the transmission dip stick, then use a funnel to slowly add fluid, checking frequently to prevent overfilling.
I have a 1996 VW dl jetta and to add the transmission fluid is on the right front side of the car underneath by the tire. My husband had to put it in that way. But he said he will never go through that again. To add tranny fluid you have to go to the garage. Because they have to pump the fluid in the tranny. There is no place to check the tranny fluid like a reg. car? Crazy but true.
dip stick tube

How do you add transmission fluid to a Nissan Altima with standard transmission?
Using a transmission funnel, you will add it thru the TRANSMISSION dipstick tube. Add a little at a time so as not to overfill it.. I hope this helps you. Mark
For all automatic transmissions you add fluid through the dipstick tube.
You should never add transmission fluid to a Chevrolet 350 engine. You can add transmission fluid to the transmission through the transmission dipstick holder.
Through the trans dipstick tube.
You add it at the same place you check it, unless it is a sealed for life unit.
The same place you check the transmission fluid. Make sure the engine is warm and do not overfill. A funnel is a must.
Take the dipstick out and put a funnel in, add the transmission fluid. (yes, the fill and check are the same). Wait for it to go down for a while before you check it again.
