Selecting 5th gear and then going back through the gears
I have an audi a3 tdi which i am experiencing problems after I have put it into 5th gear and then have to slow my speed so have to go through the gears back to 2nd but it gears get stuck and make the car stall where cannot get the gear into right speed. Will it need stripping and a new gear box fitted or can an adjustment be done to prevent this from happening which shouldnt cost too much. how much would either of these problems roughly cost

First check the fluid level and make sure it is correct. If it's good you will then need to go to the dealership to have the codes pulled. I hope the problem is the fluid because it will be expensive otherwise.
Hello everyone having similar sort of issues , any help would be much appreciated ,, trouble with my 04 plate a3 2.0 tdi , the car loses power in first and second makes a lot of noise but doesn't really go anywhere but if ease completely off and back on again the turbo kicks in properly it also won't go over 4000 rpm unless I go off and on the throttle any help would be greatly appreciated also I took the vacuum resivour pipe off whilst checking a few things and it cured it until I was cruising down the motorway and it just lost all power so I stopped and put vacuum resivour pipe back on and after about 15 mins the vacuum must have built back up again because it was back to just being useless in 1st and 2nd gear ..???????? Help !!!! I'm lost
The right engine mount has failed and it will have to be replaced. This is a job for a shop, the engine must be lifted from the chassis to access the mount. It's a 2 day job so make arrangements for a replacement car.
Your motor probably runs in "failsafe" mode (won't go past 3000rpm in highest gear), but in that case the ECU warning light should also come on (which might also be broken ofcourse).
Try releasing and reconnecting the battery (-connectors), which should "reset" any fault-codes in the ECU and see if the TDI power is back. Please note that the "cause" of the ECU faultcodes will probably put the motor back in "failsafe" mode within minutes ! But at least you've verified that your motor runs in "failsafe" mode due to serious faultcodes in the ECU.
You should have a dealer/expert read the ECU faultcodes using VAGCOM to determine the cause. A dealer will charge something like 50~60$ for it.
Since it's a 1.9TDI my best guess is that's it a broken N75 turbo-valve (common TDI issue, replacing the part yourself will cost less than $30 and 15 minutes). When the dealer suggests a complete replacement of the Turbo-unit (quite expensive), please have a TDI-expert do an 2nd opinion ...
