Mk4...this is the mk3 sectionTake a look in the mk4 PAssat transmission change FAQ article. You have to bring the car in warm and then with the engine running, open the fill hole. If a few drips come out, it's OK. If it's low, nothing will come out. It sounds like they are charging you 1 hr labor, sounds fair.
I'm afraid that dealerships usually charge at least an hour labor to plug in their diagnostic equipment (VASx)...I decided to take it in to the dealer. he tells me just to check the oil it will cost 120.00. Is that right? or is this :BS ?
