Transmission does not go into gear.


Hi, check that the cable is attached to the gear selector on the trans and does the shift quadrant move as it usually did.... not sticking or stiff in it's movement. Auto's are basically a hydraulic pump forcing oil in through valves and galleries in the valve body,,,, it could be that a gallery is blocked or that a valve has jammed shut..... check all electrical connectors for a proper fit..... do all the lights on the shift indicator light up as normal, no engine check light coming on ?

The transmission of my A4 2.4 Audi does not shift. I replaced the gearbox speed sensor. However, I experienced the same symptoms after 30 miles driving. Please your assistance is highly appreciated.


Make sure you have sufficient gear oil (ATF) in the transmission, an Auto box uses oil pressure to shift gears. Often after the trasnsission has been removed and re fitted it will work out all the air within the first test drive thus the oil level drops too low to shift gears.
