Common Audi Transmission Issues

Audi vehicles, while known for their high-quality engineering and performance, can sometimes face transmission issues, particularly in certain models like the A4 and A6. Here are some common transmission problems that you might encounter with your Audi:

Common Audi Transmission Issues
  • Clutch Assembly Fault: This issue can manifest as a shuddering sensation on pull-off, loss of hill start assist, losing drive, no reverse, or surging around town traffic speeds. The Multitronic transmission fitted to many Audi A4 models (after 2001) often develops a fault with the forward clutch assembly. The factory clutch system doesn’t have enough holding power for some situations encountered on the road. Audi recommends an upgrade from 6 to 7 friction plates to prevent this from happening.
  • Torque Converter Clutch Problems: Over time, the torque converter’s clutch in Audi A4 and A6 models begins to slip, and if not caught early, it could get destroyed. You may feel a slight jolt when your Audi switches gears if you’re experiencing this issue. In some cases, the clutch could also jam.
  • Torque Converter Needle Bearings: If you hear a grinding sound from under your vehicle, it could be a sign of torque converter needle bearing failure. The needle bearing can become worn over time, causing lasting damage to your Audi’s transmission.
  • Unsafe Fluid Levels: A low level of transmission fluid is common among all vehicles. If your Audi is shifting slower or beginning to slip, it could be due to low fluid levels. This is often caused by a leak in the transmission or drive shaft.
  • Solenoid Damage: If your Audi is acting as though your fluid levels are low, but you’ve checked those and ruled them out, it’s likely that your Audi has solenoid damage. This can affect the fluid flow through your transmission and cause more serious damage if left untreated.

Remember, if you notice any of these issues, it’s important to get your vehicle checked as soon as possible. At GT Imports Automotive Repair, we have the expertise to diagnose and fix these common Audi transmission problems, ensuring your vehicle continues to perform at its best.
