Questions About 1988 Audi 5000 Quattro’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Audi 5000 Quattro? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 5000 Quattro’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 5000 Quattro is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 5000 Quattro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Audi 5000 Quattro transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Audi. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
