Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

1998 Audi A4 Quattro; transmission sticks in high gear (when engine heats up); won't downshift. Had new filter/fluid put in, no change. What might this be?

Have had ongoing issues with 'jerky' up-shifting previously, but only recently does it stay 'stuck' in high gear when engine/fluids are heated.

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

SOURCE: 01 duramax allison changed fluid and filters now in limp mode

Make sure you have the proper amount of tranny fluild in it and get that Valvoline fluid out of it. Allison transmissons have there own type of tranny fluid and you want to use it. You can buy the right stuff from a Allison dealer. Most Detroit Diesel dealers are also Allison dealers. Look them up in your phone book and they will tell you the quanity and sell you five gallon pails of the fluid. Just get the serial number off of the side of the transmisson before you call. Change the fliters again too. Believe me, this is important. My company has Yard horses with Allison transmissions and you don't want to screw with the small stuff. Service them right and they work as hard as you want.

SOURCE: 1998 Audi A4, engine shakes/runs rough sometimes

It sounds more like you've got an intermittant vacuum leak. Try, with the engine running, spraying some WD-40 or any kind of penetrating lubricant spray,over the intake manifold area and any related vacuum lines. If you hear the engine strat to stumble, providing you're not shooting directly into the air box, concentrate the spray on that area until you're able to pinpoint a loose, cracked. or off, vacuum line or hose.

Nope. There is a drain plug on the transmission case. It is a simple drain and fill. Odyssey transmissions do not have a filter.

Check your transmission fluid. If you have not changed it in 75,000 miles change it. This is the cheapest fix before you look at more expensive repairs.

It is most likely that it is the transmission, it sounds like you didn't put fluid enough. or something is restriction the fluid flow to the torque converter which is located between the engine and the transmission, it replaces the clutch in a manual transmission. The wiring harness to the transmission may have been unplugged when you did this. make sure it is plugged to the transmission, and the transmission is full of fluid.

1996 Audi A4 quattro 2.8l manual shift is having shifting problem


if the car is a 5spd the clutch is burnt out of it. if it is automatic, it could be low on fluid, or tranny needs a rebuild.

A4 Transmission shifting


Fist thing to do is change the transmission fluid and filter. Audi says the transmissions have lifetime fluid, but that's bull - change it first and see if that helps. If not, have the car scanned by a shop and have the chassis codes looked into. If there's a true electrical control problem, there should be at least one code stored (which may not trip the check-engine light).

Reverse gear problem


Change the Transmission filter and flush the fluid in it, I'd be willing to be the factory filter is still in these trannys and it's about clogged up, gettin worse once the fluid heats up. The pump won't build enough pressure to allow it to act properly.
