Exclamation ATF Change On Audi A4, A6 and A8 (Auto Trans!) with photos!

Flushing your Audi automatic transmission fluid should always be done in conjunction with the automatic filter replacement. Refer to the factory Bentley manual for Audi automatic transmission fluid system instructions. I recommend having a certified Audi mechanic change your Audi automatic transmission fluid. Always wear gloves and safety goggles when handling Audi fluids. Make sure the vehicle is perfectly level.

When the transmission fluid is still warm, but the vehicle has cooled down, remove the Audi transmission drain plug and drain the fluid into an appropriate container (Image 1).

Remove the automatic transmission fluid oil pan (Image 2).

Clean the sediment out of the bottom of the transmission fluid oil pan. And clean the magnets which have attracted metallic particles (Images 3, 4).

Remove the Audi automatic transmission fluid filter (Image 5).

Install the new Audi transmission filter rubber pan gasket, and filter onto the transmission valve body. Torque the screws to factory specifications (Image 6).

Align the new Audi automatic transmission fluid oil pan gasket with the oil pan and install the oil pan. Torque the screws to factory specifications.
Remove the Audi automatic transmission fluid oil pan fill plug (Image 7).

Using the Audi special tool (VAG 1924), fill the oil pan with the Audi automatic transmission fluid until it runs out. Reinstall the Audi automatic transmission fluid oil fill plug hand tight.

Start the car. With your foot pressed down on the brake pedal, shift the transmission selector in each gear for about 10 seconds. !!! Note: Don't drive the car !!! Remove the oil fill plug while the car is at an idle and add more Audi automatic transmission fluid until it runs out.

The final steps and procedures for topping off the Audi automatic transmission fluid level will vary depending on Audi model and year. It is critical to obtain the proper Audi automatic transmission fluid level to prevent Audi transmission shifting problems especially with tiptronic transmissions. You should refer to the factory or the Bentley manual.
