    2008 Jetta Manual Trasmission fluid

    hey all - which fluid should I be using for a 2008 Jetta, 2.5l Manual Transmission?

    Just bought one with 45,000 miles on it, and looking to do a drain and fill. I've searched but couldn't find anything definitive. I've seen some boards recommending 75-90, others recommending 75-80, etc.

    Some people also say the fluid is good for the life of the vehicle too? Find that surprising.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    http://volkswagenownersclub.com/vw/s...Everything-DIY Look for my DIY on this matter.

    Use OEM fluid and you can't go wrong. The trans doesn't take any old gear oil but there are options. I explain some of your options better in that post.
