No help form dodge Australia

Recommended Posts


best info would probally come from a local transmission shop, as info off internet might lead you wrong? most of transmissions here require the fluid be checked with a special machine with the engine running at a certain temp and other factors from what i read. also not sure if you have a trans dip stick or not over here most newer journeys dont have a dip stick (which i hate) good luck and keep us informed what you find out. i am sure you will get more answers here...

Thank you for your reply here in Australia when you speak to dodge all they tell you is the transmission is a throwaway item that is why I am asking on this forum if anyone has the information I need and mydodge is the same no dipstick

You're kidding right? Transmission is not a "throw away item". As stated, try an actual transmission shop. Not sure if the transmission used with the diesel is the same as the one used for the gas engines. Do you have an owners manual?

A little late in the discussion.

This Journey CRD R/T has a 2 litre VW turbo diesel and DSG gearbox. Same as many VWs, Seats and so on.

Nice drive in our heavily road policed state. Runs at about 7.5 l/100km overall.

The autobox fill process is a pain. There is a special tool that is installed from underneath and oil is pumped in until overflow. Dealer only.

Supposed to be sealed for life. I couldn't find any real details on this and then the diesel threw a timing belt and wrote itself off.

Now have the 2.7l V6, nice drive but less economical.

This has a 62TE, and had to buy a special dipstick to set the right level, this is easy and filter kits are readily available here

I have the same specs. The transmission is a 6-speed Volkswagen DSG DQ250. It takes 5,8 - 6 litres of transmission oil. Change it regurarly every 60 000 km. Do not forget to chenge the transmission filter as well. When buying transmission oil, make sure it is APPROVED by VW and not only compliant.
