1997 Volkswagen EuroVan Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen EuroVan? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your EuroVan’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my EuroVan's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Volkswagen EuroVan’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
