Audi A8 transmission trouble

I have a 2000 A8L that suddenly stopped shifting. It seems like it defaults to 5th gear with all of the shift indicators lit up in the dash. I had a mechanic look at it and he want to replace the trannie. To me it seems like the trannie doesn't know what to do??? Please help. Thanks, Jim

Hi, first i would check the fluid level if it is not a sealed trans. if the fluid level is ok, it may be that the TCM(transmission Control module is malfunctioning. this module controls the actual shift points. the TCM sends the shift signal to the shift solenoids that are located inside the transmission pan. these shift solenoids preform the engagements of the gears on command, which is initiated by this module i speak of. this module may be damaged,in return, causing this confusion in the shifting patterns you are experiencing.

    A good way to make sure if you will need a complete transmission replacement procedure is to , drop the transmission pan and inspect the bottom of the pan for metal fragments that may have dropped from the internal trans structure and gears. pay close attention to the color of the fluid as well. if you notice any metal fragments and dark fluid on the bottom of the pan, this will confirm major transmission failure and you will need to rebuild or replace this trans.

2nd gear drops hard


Dear Madam or Sir,

this is a well known problem with the Audi-transmissions, we do have a lot of failures with them over here in Germany. ;)

There are some software updates available, in many cases this fixed the problem.

Another possibility is a faulty transmission speed sensor, this is causing the hard shift behaviour.

First you should see the dealer to check the transmission control module´s trouble code memory and to check if there is a software update available for your car.

It is the prnd indicator switch on the shift shaft of the transmission,or a shift solenoid,or the valves are sticking in the valve body,try some lube guard,added to the transmission,it is great for stuck valves.
