German car manufacturers like to maintain the myth that automatic transmissions are sealed for life. Of course they are right if you only want the life to be about 50/60 thousand miles! This guy has very well documented bulletins on a number of VW service issues........enjoy. http://www.taligentx.com/passat/maintenance/atfchange/
For automatic transmission: remove transmission dipstick, put fluid in dipstick tube with funnel. be careful not to overfill.
in the transmission fluid reservoir under the hood
the transmission dip stick is red, you use funnel to put fluid in there
in dip stick tube
You add fluid at the same place you check it.
The fluid goes down the dipstick tube.
as long as it is an automatic transmission, you put ATF in
under the car directly in gear box
you have to put it in the dipstick hole.
down the dipstick tube
You wouldn't want to do that because starting with the 2002 model Ford Explorer ( four door ) there is no automatic transmission fluid dipstick / dipstick tube that would allow you to put in automatic transmission fluid at home
Down the dipstick tube.
there is none, it uses the same one in front
The transmission fluid on a 2002 Harley Davidson Fatboy motorcycle is changed by removing the drain plug and allowing the fluid to empty. The drain plug is then put back in place and fluid added into the filler tube.
This has been made very awkward in order, presumably, to encourage the autotransmission to have a short life. See this site for the complete detail on changing the fluid and filter. http://www.taligentx.com/passat/maintenance/atfchange/ Hope that this is helpful.
In the transmission.
remove the transmission pan cover ..on the passenger side of the transmission there is a drain plug.... you must pump it in...
Down the tube that holds the trans dipstick.
You put the Transmission Fluid in the Transmission (fill point transmission drip stick tube)
The transmission will fail.
Low Transmission fluid
Buy a transmission funnel and pour the fluid in the dipstick tube.
Refer to your owners manual. Don't think this requires additional trans fuild. The transmission is designed that way.
In the transmission!
