1985 Volkswagen Quantum Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 my Volkswagen tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Quantum is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Quantum's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Quantum’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
  • Can my Volkswagen Quantum leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Volkswagen Quantum can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Quantum ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.

You might even experience transmission failure.
