If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....
Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.
IF YOU DON,T KNOW WHERE THE OIL&AIR FILTER ARE.IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR YOU TO TAKE THE CAR TO A LOCAL GARAGE AND GET THE WORK DONE THERE PLUS REPLACE THE OIL.WILL NOT COST MUCH.(GET A PRICE FIRST)..JUST KEEP BACK FROM AUDI DEALERSHIP GARAGES COST TO MUCH MONEY..
