There is no tranny dipstik, but there is a small black fill tube with a red plastic lock around it just above the starter. This trans is supposed to be lifetime maint. free, but change the fluid and filter regularly if you value that car.

Where do you put the transmission fluid in 1997 VW Jetta?

I know for all the cars we have had ,that if it is an automatic transmission you have to pour the transmission fluid down the Transmission dipstick (where you check the fluid at), But if your car is a 5 speed manual you have to check the fluid under the car and pour it in there. The system is a closed system, its meant to last the life of the transmission. This being said there is no dipstick at all on an automatic jetta I'm not sure of the years but the 97's don't have one. There is an area where a dipstick can be added in the front of the transmission near the radiator you will have to look for it and you can buy the $19.00 mod piece on eBay or elsewhere.

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1999 VW Jetta?

there are two kinds of automatic transmissions on these cars; one has a dipstick and the other one does not. if yours has a dipstick, it will be on top of the transmission in line with the engine starter. if it does not have a dipstick, checking fluid level is done from underneath the car and requires the replacement of the seal on the plug you have to remove. it also requires the car to be cold so you can warm it up with the plug removed to see if any fluid spills out. it also requires instruments to measure transmission fluid temperature so you know when the temperature is "just right" for testing fluid level. let a vw shop do it.

I had a 2000 jetta and the dipstick is down below by the rack & pinion on the driver's side. It is not long enough to reach the top (accessible from open hood). You have to go under the car and reach on the front drivers side of the transmission.
