VW DISCONTINUED ALL DIPSTICKS AND DIPSTICK TUBES MANY YEARS AGO.
THESE ARE NOW MANUFACTURED HERE, IN THE USA.
With vehicle sitting level and the engine running, selector lever in park,
fluid warm, at 95-113°F/35-45°C, the fluid should be half way between the two
dots. As the transmission temperature increases, the fluid level will rise, as well. Correct level at any time, should be between the upper and lower dots. If below the lower dot, add fluid. If above the upper dot, you must drain some fluid out of the pan.
This kit includes the dipstick tube, the dipstick, and the O-ring for the tube base, along with some brief installation instructions. Installation is not difficult but, it is a little dirty, greasy and somewhat time consuming.
This will replace the short and almost useless plastic fill tube that is attached to the side of your automatic transmission. It will allow you to check the fluid level at any time, whether the engine is cool or at operating temperature. It will also allow you to add fluid to your transmission thru the metal dipstick tube. A long, thin tapered funnel is most helpful for doing so.
For 01P Transmission From 1995 model year, thru the end of production in 2003 for Eurovan and 2005 for Rialta Complete kit includes filter, filter seal, the correct transmission pan gasket and five spacers.
We have found that the majority of these kits in the marketplace have the incorrect pan gasket in their kit.
OEM Synthetic blend NOTICE: This fluid was developed at the request of ZF (Zahnradfabrik) for use in a range of different automatic transmissions manufactured by ZF for VW, Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Range Rover. All of these transmissions use the same fluid formula. It does not matter if the fluid is branded as ESSO, Febi-Bilstein or Pentosin. As long as the label specifies LT71141, it is the correct fluid for your transmission.
