Volkswagen Automatic Transmission Parts

Volkswagen is a global auto market leader and recognized brand representing quality vehicles that feature great designs with long-term dependability. VW has had three of their vehicle makes in the top 10-bestseller list and remains developing them today. Their history has been created upon years of experience with superior values in manufacturing vehicles, interior parts, and more specifically, automatic transmission products. Fixing up your VW’s automatic transmission usually means taking out the transmission and taking it apart. There are quite a few symptoms to look for on the exterior of your vehicle that will help pinpoint any issues before you go to through the time and expense of taking out the whole transaxle, though. Your Volkswagen’s automatic transmissions before 2003 were not as dependable compared to the average vehicle in North America, but more recently, models have improved significantly to the point that they are now above average. The first thing to do when inspecting your auto transmission is to examine your transmission fluid with your Volkswagen ‘s engine running at normal operating temperature. Pull out your dipstick and clean it off with a cloth or towel. Now, put it back in and pull it out again. The fluid on the dipstick should be a clear red color. If it is black, burnt red, or smells burnt, then it should be flushed out and replaced. If your new fluid becomes dark or burnt looking in a small period of time there is most likely a serious issue inside your transmission. For further diagnostics, take your Volkswagen into a shop, as soon as possible. FCP Euro carries a great deal of Volkswagen automatic transmission parts and components, including a large supply of the Volkswagen brand, as a whole.

Next, look beneath your Volkswagen for any leaking of your transmission fluid. To locate a leak you have to wash off the transmission housing with a degreaser, first. After that is finished, take your VW for a slow drive around the block. Do not drive too fast or you will blow the leaky transmission fluid everywhere, making it unfeasible to find the leak. Usually, leaks are found in the control valve cover, dipstick tube, transmission oil lines, and speed sensor. It is important to always block the wheels and apply the parking brake when testing the transmission shifter. Inspect for any badly adjusted linkage in the transmission, as well. The transmission shifter in the cab is joined by linkage to your VW’s transmission. This linkage can become out of line, especially in older models. Warning signs of badly adjusted linkage could be that the engine has to be started positions other than park and neutral, your VW rolling when in park or the shifter showing a different position than the one the transmission is set in.
