    4 cylinder and if you were to make a steady grawling sound with your mouth a bit open that is what it sounds like and as the time goes by the sound is getting louder tried to put my ear to the motor and the sound is strongest near the injector area

Try driving it at that speed with your foot slightly on the brake pedal. (enough to put the brake lights on). If your lock up torque converter is acting up, riding the brake will dis-allow it from locking. Do this to see if it might be a lock up converter issue. (They usually lock up for better gas milage around 45-50 miles per hour.)

Why does my car make a jerking motion while in drive?

It sounds like a misfire, My suggestion is that you change the spark plugs and wires first. Then if it continues look for a vaccum hose that has come detached.

What would cause loud idling sound , jerking motion and unresponsive brakes to a 2001 audi tt (manual transmission) after adding brake fluid?

loud idling may be higher rpm's and unresponsive brakes point to a vacuum leak in the power booster hose that will run very clos to the reservoir.

Front end makes loud noise while driving over 10mph and gets louder and hums down when i stop

It sounds like you may have a wheel bearing/ hub assembly starting to go bad...You can check this by jacking up the front end and checking for slight play in each wheel when you try to move tire in a side to side,and up and down motion basically But you just want to use a wiggle should be able to feel a bit of excessive play in the side which is going bad...One side will be tight with no play,and the other will have some play if the wheel bearing hub assembly is going bad...
