I need to change the 4 speed tranny fluid due to the fact the inspection plug was missing when I got the car. I can see inside it and I don't see any fluid. Not sure if I should or not and I haven't looked over the manual yet.
I know the book may say one thing on fluid type but what are you guys using? I was thinking of going with a synthetic blend all around...
In a WoRlD full Of CoPy cAtS, be an ORiGinAL...
1980 4 door Vw Wabbit 1.5 diesel
Plain old gear oil, 80w90, sae80, gl4. You talking about the filler plug missing or the timing plug? :P
Do not confuse the timing hole for the fill hole. The timing hole on the top of the transmission is to set timing and is directly above the clutch. www.germanautoparts.com has the timing hole cover.
The transmission fill plug is a 17mm set screw on the passenger side of the differential.
What do Divorces, Great Coffee and Cars all have in common?
They all Start with good GROUNDS.
Replace all of them that you can, 99 percent of flakiness will disappear.
92, 93 Cabriolet.... 89, and 90 are Deceased.
If your wondering what fluid Im using inside my transmission, its stalube 85w-90 gl4 rated oil from NAPA mixed with some el cheapo multigrade gl3-gl4-gl5 coastal gearoil. This was after I replaced all of the reachable seals.
