Question about 2001 Audi A6

1 Answer

Audi 2001 A6

My Audi is not shifting correctly it sticks in the lower gears and will not shift into the higher gears which causes the RPM 's to stay in 3 or 4 and the motor sounds terrible and I lose power. I took it to a mechanic and they said that it does not show up on the computer that there is anything wrong . Also could it be that my idicator light is not operating correctly.

If you are using an Automatic, there could be slipping in the tranny, Replace the fluid, or take it to a transmission shop, could also be a torque converter issue.

5-speed 97 escort wagon... on the dash, there will be an orange arrow light that pops up in between shifting gears. the arrow points up/forward. what does it want? does it want me to shift into a higher...


Some cars came with this light to help the driver know when to shift to the next gear. IE: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on. It will not indicate when to downshift to a lower gear. It's main function was for optimal mileage and proper RPM shifting. Happy driving.

I just bought a 2001 pontiac grand am se with 99890 miles. I would like to know what rpm is the proper shift point from first to second gear? Mine shifts at like 3000 to 3500 rpm and shifts firmly is that...


Hello,well at what rpm it shifts at of course depends on how hard your pressing the accelerator at that moment,if you floor the accelerator it will shift at higher rpm (red line) but if you take off very slowly it should shift at a much lower rpm....but to answer your question 3000-3500 is a good shifting rpm( if the gauge red lines at 6000-6500 rpm) and firm shifting is a good thing,slow,sluggish and hesitant shifting is a sign of bad things to come from a tranny!! ps keep the engine oil,and transmission oil changed for long life out of your car engine and tranny. good luck and enjoy your new car......yz-maniac.

2002 audi a6 transmission is in safe mode. What


hi, what it usually mean is that you have shifted down in to a lower gear whilst the revs where to high so then your gearbox goes into safe mode to protect it from further damage the only way to reset this is to take the car to a main dealers and have a diagnostic check done.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Why does s3 and s4 on integra start flashing


I found this one the www.hondacarforum.com
http://www.hondacarforum.com/honda-technical/28562-i-have-1989-honda-integra-can-any-one-tell-me-what-s4-gear-stick.html

You have a couple of choices on this Honda transmission... D and S modes. Consider the D as the normal Drive mode and the S for Sport mode. The difference between the two is that in "D", the transmission will shift through the gears all the way to 4th gear and at lower rpm shift points. In "S", the transmission will shift at higher rpm levels and will go no higher than 3rd gear and light S3 on the dash. Once the vehicle is in 3rd gear (S3) you can then press the S4 button and the transmission will go into 4th gear (when conditions dictate). I believe there is even an S4 indicator on the dash signifying the trans is in 4th gear

The last line looks like it is the key here though.

If the car thinks its in 4th gear when you are trying to start it, obviously it wouldn't start...you could probably hunt around and see if there is a sensor on the transmission stick that runs the "D" vs "S" mode

Shift lock light stays on in drive


sounds like something might have gotten into the shifter mechanism. several things could get in there like the accordian strip around the shift handle, coffee or soda could be spilled in there,....ext. another possibilty is the shifter cable going bad . I'd disconnect the shifter cable from the tranny and see if it all moves free then, if not any better take apart the shifter itself and see whats making it hang-up.

Stick shift # Automatic RPM


That is normal,If you do the same speed in 4th gear the rpm's will almost double.

The rpm's will repond faster in a manual than an automatic.

In a manual the engine supplies the power required directly to the gear that you have selected thus the engine rpm's will increase or decrease as needed.
