Question about 2001 Audi A6
My audi a6 pulls off slow in 3rd gear only but drives smooth why is it driving in 3rd gear only.
That doesn't sound good, sounds like a transmission problem. First try changing the transmission fluid. if that doesn't work find a reputable shop to take a look at it.

one reason for stuck in 2nd gear its anti theft if u have remvd fuses and replaced it takes it as tampering and the computer has to be reset which costs at audi agents but i got from autoelectrician that if u disconnect battery for ten minutes then re connect it re sets the onboard computer i had same problem and ive done it twice with mine with success could be same with yours try it its so inexpensive

oil type is either 5W-30W or 10W-30W depending how cold your climate is, as far as having the car properly taken care of, the Audi dealer is the best option, they have all the proper tools and service info needed to keep the car in top running condition.

SOURCE: Transmission stays in one gear
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.

My 2005 A4 3.0 convertible audi is not a diesel, but I had a similar experience with a low oil signal going on and after checking the oil, which was sufficient, and replacing the dipstick, the light did not come back on until a subsequent trip. The light usualIy went on when I was close to the needing an oil change. I've had the car, a used one, for about two years, and the oil light minimum signal started behaving like yours early. About a week ago the oil pressure warning light came on. I don't know if there's a relationship, but if there is be careful. Audis of our vintage have a problem with sludge build up that damages the oil pump, which is a costly item. If you drive the car with low oil pressure you may seriously/fatally damage the car. I don't know if the sludge, if that's what you have, can be cleaned out, but I'd do it if it can be. My mechanic advised me to trade the car to a dealer rather than fix it. Hope you have better luck!
