These cars dont have a transmission dipstick, because vw says the fluid is lifetime.

How do I check transmition fluid n 98 vw jetta vr6 2.8
It don't have one. It is filled for "lifetime" with very special and expensive transmission fluid.
There is no dipstick for a manual. Checked from underneath the car on the upper side of the transmission. Remove plug to check level.
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.
at your local vw dealer . rip off'sThere isn't a dipstick. I looked it up and the Jetta has had the dipstick eliminated. Apparently you need access to certain software OR you have to go to a dealer.
From what I know and have heard, the automatic trans on this car is sealed. Meaning there's no dipstick.
Sorry you have to be a chosen one to check the fluid level . Need the volkswagen tool. Uses the OB Connection with VAT software.
i had the same problem. but guess what a 99 jetta doesnt have a dipstick for the tranny fluid it has a sealed lifetime transmission fluid. so you dont have to worry about it. i was going to change it and the mechanic asked "are you sure you want to do that?" i chuckled and asked why and he said that its like 400 dollars to change the fluid. i then choked and walked out the door. lol hope that helps

how do you check the transmission fluid in a jetta 2003
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 need to know how th check transmission fluid level on my granddaughter's '69 VW Jetta.
how do you add transmission fluid to a 1996 vw jetta?
It is important to maintain the fluid levels of a car with the correct fluid types. The transmission fluid type for a 1998 VW Jetta is Universal ATF or ATF 1 fluid.
There a no dipsticks on vw transmissions. They are sealed units.
The manual transmission on a Jetta does not have a traditional dipstick. The fill plug is located on the left side near the front. If the oil reaches the bottom of the filler plug hole, the oil level is correct.
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.
It is important to know the fluid capacity of a car. The 1998 Jetta holds approximately two liters of transmission fluid, which would be a little over 2 quarts.
