Does anybody know how to check transmission fluid on a 98 audi a6 quattro?
And I need to know how to add some, and what kind of transmission fluid to
buy. The transmission seal is leaking and I dont have the money to fix it

The A6 as well as other models use a special tool that is connected to
the hood latch that contains the atf. The large plug is removed from
the trans pan and a scan tool is connected to the car. The engine is
started and the scan tool with proper software will be able to access
the TCM. Once in the TCM the atf temperature is monitored. When the
temp reaches 38c the plug is removed from the pan and the fluid should
start to run out. If not the tool is inserted and fluid is added till
it trickles out. Once the temp reaches 42c the plug is reinserted.
I donot recommend chabging the ATF unless the car is used under severe
operating conditions. During the 5000/4000 model years we used Dextron
and there was a 30,000 mile service change. Now Audi uses a synthetic
The only time it is necessary to check the fluid is if someone is
having problems with slippage .
