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.

Hi audi 02 tdi having trouble gettings gears have to force gear stick at times .some times cant get gears the problem isnt their all the time .now their a rattle when reversing tks

I would check the fluid level first. If fluid is full you have a mechanical problem and will need to be taken to a reputable trans shop or if you can find a used trans with a warranty it may save you a little. Have a great day

Audi a4 transmision

1st thing to do is have the electronics of the trans tested for trouble codes, this can be a electronic failure or a hard part failure, the trouble code test is where u start to decide the plan of attack, the dealer is the best place to have these tests run.

My story Dealing with Dodge

I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle. I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble? Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.

Won't go into reverse sometimes

I'm assuming you checked your transmission fluid level. Sounds like a transmission problem. I don't think its something you want to try to fix yourself. you should take it to the shop.

1991 Audi 100 has trouble in reverse when warm?

You have a transmission fluid pump for the reverse gear and a 2nd one for all forward gears. Something is wrong with the pump. Your transmission problem could be the result of neglect if you haven't been flushing your fluid at least every 40,000 miles. Flushing the transmission now may fix the problem, it may make it worse, or it might not make any change at all. The first step is to find out that your transmission fluid level is correct by checking the dipstick with engine at operating temperature while idling in Park. DO NOT OVERFILL. NOTE: your fluid doesn't get thin when it gets old, it gets THICK and dark due to contamination. The darker it is, the longer it's been siting there.
