Audi Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Brandon.
This is a symptom of stuck or bad valve body inside the transmission.
What is the year and model of your Audi?
I would suggest you to change out the transmission fluid and filter. The job would remove harmful dirt and metallic particles that can lead to transmission failure and expensive repairs. The new fresh fluid renews additives to improve shift quality and performance. When you are in the shop ask for the update on the transmission control module. Have you done the following?
Please rate me positive, thank you.
Yes Fluid changed
Yes, you will need to a transmission program update. The update is 37G1 is the update number.
Bring it to an Audi and have it flash program.
Idont understand. I have replaced many of these transmission andhave never had to do that
Typically I recommend my customer to do a transmission update first due to cost before changing the entire transmission.
But only dealer can do it ?
Can I do it with Vagom?

Mark 37g1 update does not pertain for your vehicle.

Not violent just constant in any gear. Idle normal or just above
can you do a throttle body adaptation to the vehicle to see if the shift is better?
