Check fluid level before starting engine -there's a reason for this. Then, after its warmed up at normal operating temperature check itagain. There are/is some serious drain back problems with this transmission and those two tests will give me better insight. Repost please.

If it's the 'Transmission' fluid level in VW Bora V5 2003 we have to keep eye on, it's sealed by VW (as per local mechanic). How do I check the fluid level.. any work around..
