#2224 of 2367 2006 A4 2.0T @54K jerks when changing the gear, any comments?
Jul 28, 2010 (11:01 am)
My 06 A4 2.0T starts to jerk/shudders when I change the gear. It feels like step on brake and the car was kicking back. The problem is most noticeable when moving from 4th gear to the 3rd gear and minor when moving from 4th to 5th, it can also be felt when move the gear from parking to reverse position even when the car is stopped.
I suspect it is a transmission problem, any comments or thoughts? (no warning light is on so far). How much does it cost to fix the problem? Also, my car is close to 54k miles, and I plan to take the car to Audi service center to do the maintenance, so will 54k maintenance solve the problem automatically?

My 09 TT is now having transmission problems. The part is on backorder so it is like take ur car back, drive it (jerking when switching gears) make ur car payments, and we will call you when the part arrives from Germany. They did the same thing with my A4 was returned on the Lemon Law.
#2226 of 2367 type of Oil for 09 A4 (non quattro)
Aug 01, 2010 (7:27 am)
Different shops are giving me different answers. One tells me you have to use Mobil 1,
another says you don't need synthetic, one says you can use 5-30 or 5-40. What do most people use and if you use synthetic how long between changes? Also I live in Las vegas where it's pretty hot

You need an approved oil that has the proper VW 502 spec. Mobil 1 European Car Formula meets that spec and there's also a Castrol version that's generally available. They are both synthetic, and I would NOT use that person who told you that you do not need synthetic for any work. Obviously they are very ill informed on the needs of your Audi.
#2228 of 2367 1997 Audi A4 turn signals/hazards do not work
Aug 08, 2010 (2:38 pm)
Hi All: I have checked forum posts for problem shown above. My understanding is that the hazard flasher is integrated within the hazard switch itself. My problem is rather strange...the hazard flashers AND the turn signals quit working simultaneously. Also, not only is there no flashing, the lamps do not even light up when the turn signals or hazard lamps are activated. Can I assume that unless the hazard flasher controls BOTH hazard light and turn signal functions, the problem is being caused by something else? I have pulled and checked EVERY fuse in the fuse panel under the left side fuse panel cover. Is there another fuse panel that I am not aware of? Also, if there is a separate flasher for the turn signals, can anyone advise of the location and/or part number of the flasher? Mystified... audiphile3/vwdawg

I bought a 2000 A4 Quattro last week and today I had the oil changed for the 1st time. They put 5 quarts of synthetic oil in it. This afternoon the check engine light came on and when I had it checked, the message related to the catalytic converter warm up below thresh hold. The car has a slight leak over one of the fuel injector s which I have scheduled to be fixed and to have the injector looked at for damage. Could these be related issues? The car didn't have an owners manual so I'm looking for one. I am new to auto mechanics but would like to understand what is happening with my car. Thanks for any words of wisdom!

Get that injector leak fixed and then clear that code and see if it comes back. Converters are very sensitive to air/fuel ratios and if your leak is causing it to run lean it could be throwing that code. Also, did they use the full 5 quarts of oil? If they did that's an over-fill for the 2.0 engine (assuming that's what you have and not the V6). I would check the oil level as well and be sure it's not over the maximum fill line. If you have too much oil in the engine it can foam up as the crankshaft whips it up and that cause issues.

I have the V6 engine in my Audi.

I double checked with the mechanic who changed the oil and he said he called in to check and they actually put 6 quarts of oil into the engine. Is that correct on the V6?
We will fix the leak and check over the injector and go from there on the other error. Thanks.

I cannot be sure if that's correct for the V6, but 6 quarts 'could' be correct.
