1986 Volkswagen Quantum Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volkswagen's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Quantum’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Quantum's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volkswagen Quantum transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
