I just had this same problem yesterday, thouh I have a 98 A6 2.8 . With mine. The engine was sending air flow metering fault codes to the ecm. Then the electronics in the transmission reads the codes then puts the transmission into 'limp mode'. The tiptronic didn't work, All the gear selection lights on the dash display stayed lit. And when the car is shut down and restarted, If you try to drive it, the vehicle stays in third gear. This has happened twice in the life of the car.
You could always take it to a dealer where they'll help you unload some piles of cash the 401k plans didn't take. But I would start by taking a personal hand held scanner and make a log of the stored codes. Then, with the scanner you can reset and delete these codes. Then as with mine. All your problems go away. If they come back, at that point visit you local dealer.

Malfunction indicator on, Kia Forte 2012


Soooo...some of you that have seen my posts and responses may be able to tell that I am a "Hot-Head"!! I graduated from Montclair State university this past semester and had my graduation at the IZOD center at the Meadowlands yesterday..long story short, I was in a really rough mood for whatever reason and when Im in one of those moods, I shouldn't be driving especially in north jersey. Anyway, I was ripping my car around in sports shift mode because i have a 2010 Forte Koup 2.4l Automatic 5-speed trans. I'm used to driving it and ripping it around in sports shift since i got the car a couple years ago. To explain this correctly, I drive the sports shift kind of like it has a clutch (but we all know it doesn't) meaning when I go from 1st to 2nd I remain on the gas but sometimes when i like to hear the shifting take place, i will let go of the gas and shift the sports shifter up into 3rd gear. this is definitely NOT needed in an automatic, I'm supposed to keep my foot on the gas while shifting into a higher gear. So after a while of screwing around and driving like a mad man trying to get to my graduation, i came to a red light and for some reason the tip-tronic would not let me downshift to 1st gear nor would the engine automatically downshift to 1st like it is supposed to and usually does. At this point I would only be able to take-off in 2nd or 3rd gear (very weird I know). So i pulled over, turned the car off and restarted it and it seemed to be fine, then I put it in tip-tronic again and it did the same thing: wouldn't let me shift down to first while coming to a stop and remained in 2nd gear. when i finally arrived to my graduation the Engine Malfunction (AKA check engine light) came on. i know this can be due to more than 100 reasons but has anyone ever experienced this before driving their automatic KOUP while driving in tip-tronic? I have an appointment at my dealer for Monday morning and can't wait to see whats wrong with it. Also when i was leaving my house this morning, i put the car in tip-tronic and took off it seemed to be fine, then when i came to a stop sign the same thing happened again where i couldn't downshift to 1st and when i took off in 2nd and shifted to 3rd the car threw itself forward whereas if someone was close to me in front i probably woulda hit them from behind (thank god I didn't). After that happened this morning, I pushed the shifter knob back into regular automatic drive and the engine seemed to lose almost all power meaning when I pushed the gas and even floored it, the car did not pick-up or go anywhere. What could be happening here?!?! Please someone HELP!!!

2000 ford ranger will not shift into overdrive


Have the transmission flushed ASAP, filter changed, and refilled with synthetic ATF. If this doesn't correct the problems a ****** rebuild may be in order. Good luck.

How can i check the transmission fluid level on a 1999 Passat D5 wagon?


If it is a Tip Tronic box you won't be able to check the level.This can only be done by VW Dealer.The diagnostic tester has to be coupled up to check gear oil temp before checking level.

Transmission problem in 2006 mazda 6


If you have gone to a shop to have your transmission maintained, I would get them on the phone immediately. Foreign cars, especially shiftronic trans. usually use different fluids. If they have put the wrong fluid or forgotten a filter, etc., you may have a destroyed system. Double check with your fluid type and the type inserted in your vehicle.

If the problem is off and on -indeed it is most likely your transmission control module...I have found it handy to have a v8 parts car @ the ready for these type of quick checks.
However if it is a permanent problem it might be something that can be reset by an audi mechanic who has the reset computer box.....only takes a minute.

The Catera is designed to heat the automatic transmission fluid when cold by extending the time the car stays in first gear. This is by design and not a defect.
