Automatic 2.0 When driving 1st gear jerks and second slip but once it gets going works fine. Is there a way to check and also add Transmission fluid?

No way to check the fluid. You should change the fluid every 50k miles. What year is your car and how many miles are on it. It is most likely the valve body going bad in your transmission. Once that goes the rest of the suckomatic isn't far behind. Changing the fluid may prolong the inevitable for a little while.

So you have a 2.0 and a 1.8? I see you have been posting in another thread about your oil light coming on?? Is that for the same car?

Drain the fluid, remove the pan, remove the transmission filter, replace filter, replace pan gasket, put pan back on transmission, replace fluid.

If you do a search on transmission fluid change you should come up with some links.

Here is one:

I think if it has 167k miles and you haven't done any transmission fluid changes then I'll suggest you to do a valve body rebuild and thus save some money on replacing the fluid again and again...

Why bother with a Valve Body if he can have a brand new transmission for just a bit more:

Well replacing the whole trans is always the best but for me they are significantly different because I don't have place to take off the whole trans but I can manage to do the valve body swap together with a fluid+filter change by myself. This is why I say this. If he has the ability to do a trans swap then it would be better.

You might want to consider changing the Transmission Gear Oil as well; A Full Synthetic GL-4 might help.

That's for the differential. It doesn't need replacement that much but replacing is always a good idea since he has such high mileage. Actually VW claims that the differential oil is filled for life and doesn't need replacement until repairing the trans.

They also claim that the ATF is lifetime fluid as well. Any fluid like that isn't lifetime. I'd change it fairly often.

They claim the same for the transmission fluid and we all know how well that went.
LOL, Hey Smileybug. Great minds think alike

I think they claim the transmission fluid need replacement every 100k miles though... but you're right they always suck on this. My friend's Audi A6 claims lifetime trans fluid but after 100k it begins to die..

Nope, they claim lifetime, at least on the O1M transmissions. There is no change interval. 100k is also too long...90k is the Honda interval, at least for their auto transmissions from '98-'02 and there are people with 90k and on their 3rd trans. Hubby's auto is at 177k and has been dying since 140k or so. Changed fluid at 90k. Changed again at 140k and the fluid was already burnt and had metal shavings in it. Gets worse every change now (going more like 10k on a change now).

Changes need to start from day one at more like 40k (which is what VW recommends for the DSG at least, maybe regular autos too). Its really all you can do to try to prolong the life of an auto.

Your oil has degraded and isn't properly lubricating the transmission.

Just flush it and refill it properly with trans fluid and you should be just fine, until then you can add a half bottle of Lucas oil transmission fix and you should be golden!

Or better yet, put some ZMAX in there and you don't even need any fluid
