Customer Question

Hi guys , I just bought a 98 VW Tranporter, and I've tried to kill it with kindness, I put about 250 ml of transmission fluid into oil dipstick by mistake. I drove about 6 k home but the auto gears were sticking in gear. What do I do??

Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. so the transmission had no fluid in it during this 6k? and the engine was mixed and way over full? if thats the case, im sorry to say that you need a new transmission and possibly an engine. you might be able to save the engine by draining it and replacing it with the specified oil and filter at least 3 times. run the engine for a few minutes between each replacement.
