The gearbox is a computer controlled auto with 4th lock up (O/D) and should, if driven very carefully,change from fluid drive to mechanical drive at about 30 mph.to check transmision carry out the following.
from standstill,put car in drive,no gas,and let the car reach max speed(about 30 ish)then.
from standstill using 1/3 gas pedal (do not move gas foot)let the car accelerate to max speed.
lastly, put car in drive and floor gas pedal(make sure you are alone)then
drive as economically as you can, the gearshift patern will then adjust to your driving style(takes about 50 miles)You will feel the car go from fluid to mechanical drive as a kind of slight drop in revs then ...engage.
assuming you have checked fluid level first of course....

What courses a oil coolant preesuer light come on and cut off the engine after driving at least 15km with my audi 3a fsi 2.0l 2005 and that you need to let it cool for about an hour befor driving agai


Could be this fancy oil ,like the newer 0/30 multigrades ,try using a straight 40 monograde oil ,you have a pressure problem with the internals and it could be anything from worn oil pump to worn mains ,another trick is too add some winns or STP oil thickener and sell it quick or this will cost a arm and leg to repair ,maybe another engine from a accident damaged car in the scrapyard .

Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Have it flushed to see if that take care of the problem. If not, adjust or rebuild may be necessary.

My Audi q7 keeps struggling to pick up power


When a problem like this arises the very 1st thing that must be done is to have the electronics scanned for fault codes, this is the how the diagnosis of the problem is started, otherwise you are just guessing.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 5 speed and my rpms seem to always be high weather I'm driving n town, 4th gear 30 mph 2100 rpm, or on the highway 5th gear 70 mph and rpms at 3100. This I'm sure is killing my gas...


check clutch for slipping condition,mayb due to worn clutch disc or a oil contaminated disc or a weak pressure plate not locking disc to flywheel therefore giving u a slipping condition and higher than normal rpms
