Questions About 1998 Audi A6 Quattro’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Audi's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.

The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your A6 Quattro’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my A6 Quattro's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Audi A6 Quattro’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Audi's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
