can u check in the center of the dash is the gear display indicating the gear like if u put in drive is d hilighted?
i'm talking about the gear display in the dash
i'm trying to figure out if u have a fault in the electrical part of the trans!!
make sure in every gear the display reads the gear that is in
I tried all the gears and they all light up on dash read out. The transmission has allways work well untill yesterday morning when it was 5 below 0. He left to go to school and backed out of the drive and put it into drive and it would hardly move. So I backed into my heated garage for several hours and tried it agian and it still did not work. I cant find out how to check the fluid level. He also did let the car warm up yesterday.
the only way to check the fluid level is using a scan tool and read the fluid temperature and then there is a 17mm allen plug that needs to be removed to see if fluid at a certian temperature 30-40 deg celcius . trickles out !!
also from that same plug u fill the trans !!!
it takes special fluid for that trans avaiable at a vw or audi dealer!!!
egine hoist and scan tool almost a must!!!
i think i have answered your question fully and deposits does not pay me so!!.............
thank you for your support and feedback
bonuses are greatly apprteciated
honestly there is an internal failure in the trans like a clutch pack or a seal in the clutch pack that is torn or excessive clearance allowing the fluid to bypass the clutch and not apply to allow u to move forward
i try to give u basic checks like leaks , fluid level and visual inspections first before talking about other items !!
