1998 Audi A6 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Audi? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Audi? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your A6 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my A6 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Audi A6’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
