Watch: Oil change and maintenance for DQ250 transmission

Your customers may not realize what maintenance the six-speed DSG DQ250 transmission in their Volkswagen or Audi vehicle requires. Besides the transmission maintenance recommended by the vehicle manufacturer, including oil and filter changes every five years or after 35,000 miles, there are also some weak points that frequently force vehicles with this transmission into the repair facility.

One of these problems is leakage and oil loss at the lower part of the transmission oil pan, caused partially by a defective oil pan gasket, but also by corrosion on the oil pan itself. Another issue is defective mechatronic units, which can lead to massive shifting problems and even total transmission failure. In this case, the vehicle manufacturer only offers to replace the complete and very expensive mechatronic unit. However, it is often sufficient to replace the control board.

In this video, Vaico experts explain the service requirements of a 2012 VW Passat 2.0L TDI, going into detail on three components of the transmission. Using six-speed DSG DQ250 transmission VW PASSAT / Golf VI / Golf VII / Audi A3 | Expert-Kits+ V10-86-0005 kit, they change a rusty oil pan, show a quick transmission oil change and highlight the removal and installation of the mechatronics. Here they change the control board and renew the seals on the electronics plug. They also replace the combined oil temperature and speed sensor located under the mechatronics.

The Wyoming Historical Society notes that the abandoned routes laid down by the Union Pacific railroad from 1867 to 1869 were often the best, and sometimes the only, east-west path available when developing the Lincoln Highway.
