Question about 2000 Audi A6
I have a 2000 A6 4.2 Quattro. THe tip tronic does not work and when I put the car in drive it seems to have one one gear (i think 3rd or 4th).
It very sluggish until you get to 40mph.
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.
