Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

with car running in park and warm remove the oil dip stick tube and check the fluid level remove the fluid with an old rag or a paper towel then stick it back in, pull out again and hold perpendicular to the ground so the fluid will not run up or down the stick, turn it so you can see the fluid level. if it is full your OK also look at the fluid, if it's brownish color and smells like burnt onions yo need to have the filter and fluid changed or you will damage the transmission. A transmission fluid and filter change costs about $150.00 average and also have them to add Lucas Transmission oil treatment so it will condition the bands clutch packs and seals, most cars need the fluid changed every 30,000 miles to make the transmission last the lifetime of the car. This is the most overlooked service on automobiles besides doing a routine tuneup.

Type of oil for audi tt 01

The best oil for that engine is mobile1 0w-40 european car oil, that is what the dealerships will use.

Depending on what temperatures you will be operating in you can also use a 5w-30 or a 10-w30.

Always use a fully synthetic oil in the Audi 1.8t, they have lots of sludge problems due to the turbo overheating the oil and breaking it down.

If I remember correctly... On the drivers side, about midway, above the tie rod.
It's a tight squeeze to remove. recommend the type of filter grip that goes on the end of the filter.
The band type is tedious due to limited room to grip and turn.

Most cars with an A/T require the transmission to be hot, engine idling in park, to check the fluid level, but not all. On some you check it cold engine off. The problem with not knowing for sure is that overfilling the transmission can damage it. For that reason I suggest you get that owner's manual you are missing. Sources are dealer, salvage yard, e-bay, and many on-line sites. Search with the term, "Automobile Owner's Manual". Draining and changing the fluid can either be accomplished by removing the drain plug if it has one or by removing the return line from the radiator and with a helper starting the engine and allowing the trans pump to pump the fluid out one quart at a time. Pump out one quart in a clear container and then stop the engine and add a quart of fresh fluid. Keep doing this until you see clear clean fluid. This will actually remove all the fluid and is better than just draining the transmission pan, which only removes some of the fluid. You will also need to know the exact type fluid to add. A call to the dealer can get you this info.
