A5 3.0 S/Line TDI gearbox problem?


Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my gearbox I think. When in stationary/slow traffic or approaching junction/traffic lights car always feels as if it wants to race forward.Few times I've experienced a violent jerk as if i have been hit from behind and also the idle seems to be hunting(Slight increase and decrease ) . It has stalled few times at junctions as well. Anybody has similar problems and what to do to help fix the problem. Thanks in advance.

Just joined the club and this is the first post I have seen.  Have a very similar problem especially when the car is cold, feels just like a someone behind has given a good nudge.  Have had the stalling problem just once.  Car is A5 Quatrro 3.0 TD with 7 speed S-Tronic gearbox, with high 121k miles.

Also interested in others experiences, and any recommendations for Auto gearbox specialists in Sussex/Surrey area as I'd like to get this checked.

I have a 2013 3.0 TDI A5 coupe and not had any of the above problems but I read somewhere the problems were ironed out with the facelift versions.

I would take it to an Audi dealership to have it checked out as it is obviously a recognised problem.

As a footnote Scotty13 I see you are in Caithness, my old hometown is Wick.

I also have this problem has anyone got to the source of the problem and how was it rectified 

When was the oil last changed in.the gearbox? I'd do a oil change first to see if that helps.
