I have a 2000 jetta gls vr6 manual. I wanted to replace the transmission oil because i get an occasional grinding in seconds gear at higher rpm's or fast shifts. What kind of oil should i use?
Any 75w-90 won't necessarily work, because some are GL-5, which contain compounds that are corrosive to brass syncros, you need a GL-4.
Go to the dealer and get the factory G070 gear oil. Follow the correct fill procedure, which can be found here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ion-Oil-Change

I Changed my tranny fluid at 96k and it seems a bit smoother. I bought the oem stuff from VW. Does any one know how to make the shifter smoother. It sometimes dosnt go all the way in 2nd and grinds? Also when i push the clutch down it seems a bit rough. Could it be a throw out bearing?
