The automatic cars (at least the tiptronics, which came out in 98) require the transmission to be up to a specific temperature, which must be monitored while changing the fluid - this requires VagCom, the VW/Audi diagnostic software (I'm not making this up). I am not sure whether the non-tiptronic cars had to have this as well or if it can be done as any other transmission - best bet is to call a European specialty mechanic and ask them - a dealer will kill you with labor rates. Do not just drain and refill though, without finding out first whether the VagCom procedure must be used.

2003 Audi A4 1.8T FWD. First gear engaging with a **** after changing fluid


Insufficient fluid ?
Did you use a scanner to monitor the fluid temperature while re filling trans?

Try 'Adaption'.

Turn on Ignition key without starting engine...press throttle all the way to the floor...hold for 10 seconds and turn off key.

This MIGHT reset trans to factory default.

You may have disturbed the wire loom at the trans which is known to corrode and resistance changes,. Without a scanner you cannot check solenoid operation.

Change the transmission fluid ant if that doesn't work then the transmission needs rebuilt or replaced. If you get on craigslist someone might be selling a transmission for cheap or check the salvage yards.

1996 audi a4 transmission hard shift problems


I would first check the level. If it is good then do a regular fluid/filter change. Do NOT do a flush. Just a regular change.

If it works well in all other gears and the car runs well and there is not check wngine light. Then it is probable a early sign of Tran issues. So the fluid change is about all you can do without major work needed.

A4 Transmission shifting


Fist thing to do is change the transmission fluid and filter. Audi says the transmissions have lifetime fluid, but that's bull - change it first and see if that helps. If not, have the car scanned by a shop and have the chassis codes looked into. If there's a true electrical control problem, there should be at least one code stored (which may not trip the check-engine light).
