Questions About 1987 Volkswagen Fox’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volkswagen Fox? 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 Fox’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Fox is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Fox's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volkswagen Fox’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Volkswagen Fox? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Volkswagen Fox, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Who can fix my  Volkswagen Fox transmission leak? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Fox transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Volkswagen Fox if it has a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Fox to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
