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.

SOURCE: Oil questions for 2003 Audi A6 Quattro

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.

SOURCE: Oil level problem with 2005 Audi A6 3.0 TDI Diesel Quattro

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!

Audi a6 quattro 2003 like its in 3rd gear off the start


The controller has likely found a serious fault and put the transmission into default, which shuts off power to the trans and therefore allows third gear only. You need to have it scanned to determine the fault and corrective action.

It could be something minor like a broken linkage, or something serious like, you need a tranny rebuild. You'll need a reputable shop to troubleshoot.

Bad rebuilt torque converter or bad fluid


Draining the fluid is easier than replacing the TC. I would try a drain an filter first, then move on from there.

My audi A6 2.5T has been parked for about a month. Everything was fine when we parked it, but when I got in to drive it, I put my foot on the brake and pulled the handle from park to the drive position...


NO, it may be the linkage from the shifter to trany that broke off, or a bad selector switch that tells the trany and yoiu what gear you are in, there are a lot of electrionic in an audi so if that switch is bad it would cause this problem, also the linkage is very important, if you move the shifter and the cable is not connected to trany then the trany will not move its like you never left park,

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates


This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

You need to get into a transmission shop right away. The fluid/filter may just need to be changed, or it could go way beyond that.
