Just bought a used Jetta and we found a green cap low in the engine and inside the cavity it looks very dry. Is this the transmission and can we put any fluid into that cavity? All other engine fluids are marked: oil, windshield, brake, coolant, steering.

I believe this is a port for checking the ignition timing, don't add any fluid to it. I suggest you get a good repair manual for your car if you want to do even basic maintenance, just so you have a better understanding of where things are and how they work. I suggest one of these: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online http://bit.ly/Bentley_Repair_Manuals
