SOURCE: transmission fluid change

More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!

SOURCE: fill transmission fluid on 19999 audi a4

LISTEN CLOSE. THERE IS A PLUG ON PAN. REMOVE IT. WITH A SYRINGE TYPE CANISTER YOU NEED TO INJECT THE FLUID INTO IT UNTIL IT STARTS TO COME OUT. THEN CAREFULLY START VEHICLE AND INJECT ANOTHER 3/4 QUART UNLESS IT STARTS TO COME OUT OR EVEN A QUART.LET IT RUN FOR 5 MINUTES THEN CONTINUE TO INSERT UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS AND TIGHTEN THE PLUG BACK TO THE PAN. i WOULD ONLY USE AUDI VOLKSWAGON FLUID AND YES IT CAN RUN $14 TO $18 A LITER

Check your fuses first, if they're all good verify that your odometer is working. If it isn't then it;s likely the sensor at the transmission. If you can get access to a VAG-COM to do a system scan it will likely tell you where the fault is. The dealership, Ross Tech Home , and Autozone can do a system scan. Autozone will sometimes do it for free.

My audi 2.5 diesel auto rev high on the motorway & feels like its jumped out of gear


It sounds like your transmission is slipping. Check your fluid levels, if they're ok, then take it to a transmission shop and have them diagnose it. Could be anything from a linkage to a rebuild.

What kind of Trani fluid we need to use for 2004 Audi A8L??? And if this fluid is expensive, can we replace it with something cheaper? Do we need to change the filter inside as well???


Use the factory fluid, and yes there is a filter. Is being cheap worth a transmission? Expensive fluid is going to look cheap when you have a $4000 transmission bill, because you wanted to save a few bucks. You have a european car, its now time to pay big bucks for repairs.

If you are having trouble w/ the top. Check to make sure the central locking system is working properly. Also as on my Cabri, try locking the trunk 1st. Hope this helps

I think on top of the transmission, the one has a wire, and looks like a sensor. To remove, need a 19mm , open wrench or socket wrench.

No dipstick to put transmission fluid into


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.

Audi a4 autotransmission change fluid


The automatic cars (at least the tiptronics, which came out in 98) require the transmission to be up to a specific temperature, which must be monitored while changing the fluid - this requires VagCom, the VW/Audi diagnostic software (I'm not making this up). I am not sure whether the non-tiptronic cars had to have this as well or if it can be done as any other transmission - best bet is to call a European specialty mechanic and ask them - a dealer will kill you with labor rates. Do not just drain and refill though, without finding out first whether the VagCom procedure must be used.
