2001 Volkswagen EuroVan Transmission Service

What Does Your Volkswagen EuroVan Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your EuroVan’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Volkswagen EuroVan transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Volkswagen EuroVan transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your EuroVan isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2001 Volkswagen EuroVan’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your EuroVan towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my EuroVan transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Volkswagen EuroVan’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volkswagen's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
