    I have a similar problem. I have a crack in my fluid container. My mechanic said it was rather expensive repair so I have just left it. It does hold fluid if I only fill it about a 1/3 full. However, I only get a couple uses before it is at the fill level again to trigger the signal.

This is the indication for your windscreen washer fluid. If it is full and showing low on the cluster, then the sensor os bad in the bottle. Replace the sensor.

I changed the transmition and put fluid in it but the weels wont turn

dont know how you changed the tranny but you must have it up on a lift while using a special gravity feed siphon with the exact fluid necessary by vin or tranny part number. it must also be at operating temp and should be filled by audi specs plus or minus 2 oz. (or equivalent ml)

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Most of the time a vehicle will take between 6-8 quartz of transmission fluid. Just keep checking as you fill, so you don't overfill it and blow a seal.

Power steering audi a6 1999

First, I'd try refilling the fluid. You can't use fluid off the shelf - Audi uses proprietary power steering fluid, available at dealerships (probably a VW dealer can give you the same thing) or online at or Try refilling it. The power steering fluid is cooled by a cooler behind the lower part of the bumper, and the fluid itself cools the power steering pump. If you're low on fluid, the pump may be heating up and in turn, heating the fluid. Fill it to the proper level and keep an eye on it for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
