Well, I'm not sure. Try changing the gearbox oil and try again. I saw on the other postings that most Audi gearbox problems pointing to a gearbox swap can be solved through oil change. I just had mine changed and it has reduced sluggishness and shuddering at low temperatures (from cool engine). It's a special gearbox oil you need to get from Audi, by the way.

Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor/Switch


I had a similar problem in my Mazda truck before. There is a pressure switch on the side of my truck's automatic gear box. The switch is connected to the engine vacuum system. When the switch leaks, the vacuum sucked the transmission oil through the vacuum line to the engine over time. Have you checked your transmission oil level? If the oil level is low, that's probably the reason. I was still able to drive back home by adding sufficient amount of transmission oil.

Good luck.

4l80e trans won't go in reverse


Check your linkage at the column and on the transmission to make sure nothing is messed up there. Check your fluid to make sure it is at the proper level and to see if it is dark or smells burnt. It should be a nice reddish pink color. There are shift solenoids for the forward gears that fail but I don't think there is one for reverse. You can remove your transmission oil pan and inspect it for broken parts and excessive sediment in the pan and look at the condition of the filter. It will be a messy job so be preparred. If your linkage appears to be fine and fluid level full, I suspect that you have some internal tranmission issues going on and will probably need a new transmission. If you end up buying a new transmission I recommend buying an AC Delco remanned as they have a good warranty and I've had good luck with them.

MY CAR STARTS BUT I HAVE NO GEARS BUT WHEN JACK IT UP BOTH TIRES OFF THE GROUND THE GEARS WORK. WHEN I WAS DRIVING I LOST ALL GEAR


Do you have forward and reverse when the wheels are off the ground? It is possible you have lost hydrolic pressure. Check the fluid level by letting the engine warm up, applying the brake, and then run the gear selector through the full range of gears, pausing a few seconds in each gear. Put it back in park but leave the engine running. Then check the fluid level on the transmission dipstick, twice. If it is low, add some and that'll likely fix the issue. If it is full, then you probably need a new transmission oil pump.

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse


first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.

Chevy avalanche transmission problems


Hello;
Are you getting the check engine light? If so the electronics may have gone out. You may not need a rebuild but you won't know till you pull the oil pan on the transmission and inspect the contents. You may also have lost the neutral safety switch. It is mounted on the drivers side of the transmission. Check those out first and let me know what codes you get.
For Ponchoboy; the clunking and hissing you hear are teminal root causes. Drop the oil pan and if it has a lot of filings and metal it is time for a rebuild.
Hope this helps; Rate me highly;

96 jeep lardeo cant use reverse what can be wrong


Have you checked the transmission oil? how does it drive in other gears, if the oil level is ok and drive in other gears is fine then I suspect you have an internal transmission fault with the reverse gear.

1998 clio 1.6 auto......loses forward drive but reverse is ok and sometimes goes in gear and is ok then after a few yards loses it again


Hmmm, Seems like one of two things
1- Transmission gearing going bad, talk to AAMCO they can rebuild auto tranny's for about a grand or so.
2-torque converter has lost it, but that would also affect reverse.
