At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

\015\012Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

04 e250. small 8cyl. Tranny bangs in and out of gear 35-45mph if i push the gas it changes gear. Also when i stop the Tranny down shifts a second later after i stop. Also when i take off some times i bangs into gear. When its cold seems to work fine. But having transmission problems when its hot. after driving 2-3hrs. I have been told it might be the VSS. I might change it this weekend but need some advice. had the Transmission fluid changed and it was clean.


Sounds like the Trans Solenoid Pack. Park it, until you fix the issues and hope no internal damage was done.\015\012Do not throw parts at it. Forget the VSS unless you know how to test it.\015\012Check for codes\015\012Changing Flui ... 2004 Ford E250

Slipping transmission. why would my transmission be slipping even after changing the fluid and filter, It feel out of gear going down the road. I parked it and killed it. then started it up and it would go in gear but had no pull. The overdrive light is flashing and it will barely even move in any gear. I have a 1996 Ford Explorer 4.0 V6 and an automatic transmission.


The friction plates maybe well worn and need replaced. Torque converter may be failing. Automatic transmissions can and will wear out in time. 14 years is alot for any vehicle. ... 1996 Ford Explorer

After having the transmission fluid and filter changed on a Regal GS supercharged, the transmission seems to sometimes slip when starting from a stop. I step on the gas to go and after a half second or so it engages, almost feels like the tires are spinning but I am not giving it that much gas. Could there be a connection between changing fluid and this problem? What do you think the problem is? Is it likely (and how soon) that the transmission will completely break down? Thank you, Mark


Who changed the fliud? Maybe the wrong fluid was added. Also some transmissions have bands that can be adjusted. Just be easy on it. You don't wont to burn it out. ... Buick Regal

My -98 mystique ,when put into drive, goes through first and into second fine, but i have to get to around 5500rpm before it will change into third. I'm not sure about fourth or overdrive. Also when i put it in reverse i have to rev, it up, but it might or might not go into reverse. Of course my foot on the break just in case it does go into gear. It had too much fluid at first,so I took some out. I also added some type of 'fix-it' fluid just in case the seals were bad. This car set in a field f

2003 mazda protege transmission problem, how do i test the tcm without changing parts? Transmission fluid looks/smells good, just serviced 8,000 miles ago. Slips in every gear (minus reverse). This is the first symptom. The 2004 is the one with the bulletin about the tcm recalibration, not the 2003. Also, the car stays in the gear it is supposed to be in, just started slipping.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 3500 4x4 diesel with an automatic. When starting out in first gear it revs to 2100rpm before shifting into second and when it shifts it seems to bee slipping or free wheeling until the accelerator is let off. Then it shifts and no problem with slipping. We changed the transmission fluid, filter and added friction modifer. There was no burnt smell or color in the old fluid, but this did not help. Is there something in the computer that might cause this problem?

2004 Montana shifts hard after being driven for about an hour. It has only occurred once, however, other times while sitting at a traffic light, when I press the fuel petal to go, it slips as if momentarily out of gear...it does catch and go after a couple of seconds. So, I'm going to change the fluid and filter and install a shift solenoid - plus add a bottle of Rislone Transmission Additive. Could the Pressure Control Solenoid also be a part of this problem - or am I just throwing money to


If the transmission has otherwise being acting OK, then I'd think that fluid and filter might take care of it. A shift solenoid might not be necessary, but it can't hurt. The only thing I differ with you on is your choice of Rislone. They make a g ... 2004 Pontiac Montana

Transmission shifts into 1st gear as it should but when its time to shift into 2nd gear I have to push the RPM up to 4 (Speed up to 30) then lay off the gas & then it will shift into the 2nd gear & so on. All vacuums are secured on. No liquids leaking. Transmission fluid & filter has been changed 1 day ago. The transmission is not slipping or jerking it just takes a longer time to change, is there a sensor that controls the valves to open up.


Possiblity there could be a sensor, or you could have a valve sticking or going bad inside the transmission. good luck ... 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe
