Question about Cars & Trucks
Start it up to warm it up, check tranny fluid in park or neutral, if low, put more in. Hope it is junk though. If not low, you never know. I'd runit till it breaks and keep putting in fluid if needed.

The (top hat) is a filter seal. If you did not change that seal then you may have damaged the old seal(still in the trans). You can remove the pan and take the filter back down. Look at the seal close, I would replace it. You can bend the old one, carefully with a screwdriver and get it out of the trans case. Tap the new one in with a socket. If your fluid is black,or there is metal in the pan then you have damage and the trans will have to be rebuilt.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid flushing
In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.
Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

well if you have a lot of millage it could only be the gearpump in the transy thats finished,unfotuntly ...you cant really change -it without rebuilding the all transy
other than that you still can drive-it but try letting the gear go on by it self ,you could damage your van by doing that !! you mignt not have choice but if you do ...try not doing-it!

since it was such a small amount of anti freeze and water,anti freeze has a petrolem base and water would have sunk to the bottom of oil pan, change oil and filter and you should be ok
