    Not quite the right answer. Without oil the transmission does not work. Simply refill the tranny oil and Walla. I could do with the 40 000 extra cash for a new transmission. Just by reading the problem this should have been evident.

    Jues I wont be asking or taking help from this site!

How do i top up my auto transmission on audi a6 2006


The German manufacturers came up with a great new idea that many others have now copied and that is to eliminate the under bonnet filler tube and dip stick. Some of the German manufacturers have decided to eliminate engine oil dip sticks as well. These people are just so innovative.

Thus you have to use the correct filling procedure as laid down by the manufacturer which involves filling the auto transmission from under the vehicle by removing the filler plug on the side of the auto unit and pumping in the fluid. It used to be so much easier.
Obviously this is best done on a lift/hoist and the vehicle must be level.

This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

I've come to love the 100% synthetic oil I put in my 1998 Audi A6 Quattro. My fuel range increased, by what % I'm not sure but it's defenitely better. All I've read about synthetics compared to conventionals solves the many questions I've had. I used to run only conventionals in my nCadilac Northstar engines till one day it blew up. I homestly believe the engine would haave never had been dameged if I wiuld have had 100% synthrtics in ig.

Remove the large plastic body panel under the engine, if it is still there. The oil pan is about 14in x 12in square with a round sensor in the middle. Drain the oil, disconnect wires, remove all 20 or so bolts. Clean gaskek surface and silicon new gasket in place. replace the bolts, but only hand tight. Let the silicone set for 2 hours, and then tichten to factory spec, about 15in/lbs
