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)
The German manufacturers came up with a great new idea that many others have now copied and that is to eliminate the under bonnet filler tube and dip stick. Some of the German manufacturers have decided to eliminate engine oil dip sticks as well. These people are just so innovative.
Thus you have to use the correct filling procedure as laid down by the manufacturer which involves filling the auto transmission from under the vehicle by removing the filler plug on the side of the auto unit and pumping in the fluid. It used to be so much easier.
Obviously this is best done on a lift/hoist and the vehicle must be level.
Here is some info on the Audi A6 auto trans you may find of use..................
HI, if its under the offside front wing, this is where to windscreen fluid bottle is, sounds like you have a leaking pipe or bottle that expands when warm allowing the water out, could of frozen in the bad weather etc causing a small crack.. if it just the end of the pipe that fits on the water pump, snip it off and push it back on, good luck.
i dont know but a pontiac grand am you have to unscrew a cap a put your finger in hole you have to look in the front back and sides carefully and slowly this method works for me when i have trouble try not to overlook it
The trans don't have a dipstick, they have to be checked at a dealership with a vag tool, they have to be checked at a certian temperature of operation, as far as fluid i would use the audi recommended G-052-162-A2 atf fluid required
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 www.germanautoparts.com or www.ecstuning.com. 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.
