using a funell pour the fluid into the spout of the dipstick..slowly
Put a small funel in the spout where you remove the transmission dipstick and pour slowly
Transmission fluid goes into the spout where you check the transmission fluid. You will most likely need a funnel to pour the liq. in otherwise it can a bit of a pain. If the is no dipstick to check the transmission then you might have a sealed transmession and then your S.O.L. and have to get it serviced for something simple like a fluid change.
under the hood Gee, i would have never thought of that... I found the spout for the regular oil, the power stearing and the windshield wash... All I can for for the transmission is the dip stick... Not to be a "Dip Stick" but where does the oil go for the Transmission, surely not in the dip stick hole?
there's a little spout on the driver's side. (ON THE S MODEL). it's a red tube.
# Check the level of the transmission fluid with the engine idling and the transmission in Park. # The transmission dipstick is marked with a max and min level. # The fluid level should be between these marks. # If it is low, top up the fluid (through the dipstick tube) to the max level (bottles of transmission fluid have an 'anteater' spout to make this easy). # If the fluid is a dark brown or black colour you should organise getting it changed and replaced with fresh fluid; this will greatly extend the life of the transmission. # Fluid in good condition should be ruby red.
You can't. It's a sealed transmission, and has no spout or dipstick. All service to the transmission should be done by a dealer.
On the VW automatic transmission of this generation vehicle, the transmission is supposed to be serviced only by VW, so there is not the typical dip stick tube that comes up into the engine compartment. You can check the fluid and add if needed through the fill spout, under the car, located directly on the transmission pan. There is a short 2" tube with a red cap, unscrew the cap which also has a fluid level indicator attached, similar to a power steering dipstick. To add fluid you will need to pump it in with a hose attached to your container. Regards. BDBENZ
The only place to add fluid is through the transmission fluid dip stick spout. Use a funnel and ensure you do not overfill it. Once filled, drive it a bit -- ensuring you run through all of the gears, then check it again and top off as necessary.
you have a busted seal on the torque converter. does it come out of the little spout tube between the transmission and the motor?
Under the hood you will find a cap that says TRANSMISSION, or something to that effect. The cap is attached to the top end of the transmission dip stick. Pull out the dipstick and add transmission fluid through the dip stick spout. Add the fluid slowly and check the level often, you don't want to overfill. When the level is somewhere between the add and full marks on the dip stick, you have a good level.
Fill it through the dip stick spout using a special long tube funnel you can get at any auto parts store.
