Question about 1999 Audi A6

1 Answer

I have a 99 Audi A6 Quattro and recently got the radiator, transmission hoses, filters, gaskets and transmission fluid changed. Now, the car doesn't even move, even when a gear has been selected. What could be the problem? Is it the transmission and if so, is it worth fixing?

It is most likely that it is the transmission, it sounds like you didn't put fluid enough. or something is restriction the fluid flow to the torque converter which is located between the engine and the transmission, it replaces the clutch in a manual transmission. The wiring harness to the transmission may have been unplugged when you did this. make sure it is plugged to the transmission, and the transmission is full of fluid.

How do you change the ATF on 2002 A6? Or better yet, how do you pump the fluid?

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

Code 16795
Check this site for any Audi codes. This is a problem with the air that it injected into the exhaust system to help burn any uncombusted fuel. Check the air pump located in front of the pass front wheel on the bottom of the engine. It is pretty easy to find. The air pump has a suction hose that goes to the air filter housing so that it has filtered (clean) air, follow the hose

The trans don't have a dipstick, they have to be checked at a dealership with a vag tool, they have to be checked at a certian temperature of operation, as far as fluid i would use the audi recommended G-052-162-A2 atf fluid required
