How do you change the gear oil 75-90 weight in a 1996 Jetta GL manual transmission?
Actually almost every single VW since the mid 80s has needed GL4 75-90 its synthetic, which VW always needs. and always GL4 not GL5, if u put the 5 in there, there are too many pressure additives and it will cause all the soft metals in your trans to dissolve.
Im buying a jet ski total weight w trailer is about 800 lbs am you going to be able to pull this w a 2 liter 5 speed trans Jetta?
That's easy the 02 Jetta has a sealed transmission. You can not check it. YOu have to go to your dealer and have them look at it. They are the only ones that can. I work on alot of these as well as many other cars. If this does not help go to an oil change shop and ask them they will explain it better. Hope this helps
