Hi:
Basically you have to remove the transmission pan to change the fluid. If you are going to change the filter too, this would be the time to do so. Purchase a new pan gasket too

How do i top up my auto transmission on audi a6 2006


The German manufacturers came up with a great new idea that many others have now copied and that is to eliminate the under bonnet filler tube and dip stick. Some of the German manufacturers have decided to eliminate engine oil dip sticks as well. These people are just so innovative.

Thus you have to use the correct filling procedure as laid down by the manufacturer which involves filling the auto transmission from under the vehicle by removing the filler plug on the side of the auto unit and pumping in the fluid. It used to be so much easier.
Obviously this is best done on a lift/hoist and the vehicle must be level.

Here is some info on the Audi A6 auto trans you may find of use..................

If used other tranny fluid than jeep 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland, would that cause code p0700.p0736 torque converter solinoid


any ATF +4 is ok, so... did you use that?
42RE transmission.
thats water under the bridge now.
sure wrong ATF is wrong, what is the point there/?
the correct fuild is clearly stated in the oper guide and fsm.
ill quote the FSM

MoparT ATF +4, Automatic Transmission Fluid is the recommended fluid for DaimlerChrysler automatic transmissions.
Dexron II fluid IS NOT recommended. Clutch chatter can result from the use of improper fluid.
MoparT ATF +4, Automatic Transmission Fluid when new is red in color. The ATF is dyed red so it can be identified
from other fluids used in the vehicle such as engine oil or antifreeze. The red color is not permanent and is not an
indicator of fluid condition. As the vehicle is driven, the ATF will begin to look darker in color and may eventually
become brown. This is normal. ATF+4 also has a unique odor that may change with age. Consequently, odor and
color cannot be used to indicate the fluid condition or the need for a fluid change.
FLUID ADDITIVES
DaimlerChrysler strongly recommends against the addition of any fluids to the transmission, other than those automatic
transmission fluids listed above. Exceptions to this policy are the use of special dyes to aid in detecting fluid
leaks.


when you buy AFT, it says on rear,
ATF +4
ok for chryrler and jeeps. in clear English, if not do not buy it.

mixing brands can be an issue, that is risky
best is full flush, with one brand, nothing is better,
here is one random example of those words.

2002 jeep liberty power steerin seem to be going out . Started with a wird noise check power steerinfluid it was low added one bottle. It seem better but than it became hard to steer


oops do not just add fluid. and the fluid not stated, brand and type. ouch.
many jeeps run very SPECIAL fluid.
the pumps runs at higher RPM and Dexron will not work on my other jeeps. id not own liberty but, can advise.
never ever use the wrong fluid in any A./T or P/S or you will be sorry.
seems its bad system if it drops level, so is moot point now (bet)
my jeep , i had to put in a new pump and napa said,our pS fluid works
and the bottle said just that, and foamed up , fast and the new pump
failed in 1hour. never ever listen to clerks. ever. run spec. lube.

the operators guide pages on capacities page 2004 (i dont have 02 books)
shows this.
Mopar ATF+4 Automatic Transmission Fluid
+4 is downward compatible to 3, its a superior lube.
+3 ended in 2005.

do not use anything else. mixing brands/types asks for trouble.
read all these post , then act.
the additives, in all brands will be different and will not mix well.
do not mix that. (the dino, syn reasons, are all religion, on mix.)

http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums/showthread.php?289443-Power-steering-Fluid-information

the ATF+4 bottle must say on back , licensed through Chrysler.
many wana be's lie. (they can, and do)

this +4 fluid is a true synthetic and has vastly better spec;s
high heat, longer life, 100kmiles, and very low shear spec.
the PS pumps , some run real fast and i've seen many foam up.
using the wrong fluid. get the real thing.
and do not mix them ,drain and fill with rear ATF+4

good luck

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.


tdisline_465.jpg
Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.

Power steering fluid


Nothing will happen. Power steering fluid is what you should have used. ATF is Automatic Transmission Fluid.This fluid is more intended where friction qualities are needed.It will work, but power steering fluid is better for the pump and hoses and gives the rack and pinion a better lubrication the ATF.Don't worry you are fine as it is.
