Where to check and fill transmission fluid

Asked by Apr 11, 2016 at 04:47 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS V6 4Motion

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

3 Answers


2002 Passat does not have a transmission dipstick. In fact, most VWs have not had one since 1994. The tranys are sealed units.


Why do you ask??? Are you having shifting problems?? Have the car evaluated by your mechanic. I would follow the owners manual for recommended oil changes on the transmission. A qualified mechanic will know how to do this. Transmission work is not something most people will get into. Only someone with the right tools and skills should even attempt this.


How many miles are on your car?
