AUDI V8 TRANSMISSION FLUID

1990 Audi V8 Transmission Fluid related Issues.


  • HOW MUCH TRANS FLUID IS REQUIRED?
  • WHICH TRANS FLUID IS REQUIRED?
  • WHERE IS DIPSTICK FOR TRANSMISSION?
  • WHAT TO DO IF WRONG FLUID FILLED?


All basic issues are answered below.

It takes Approx 4 Quarts of  Transmission fluid.


The Audi trans fluid is full synthetic.
The additives in the synthetic fluid are necessary for correct power application and lubrication in the trans.

The trans needs fully synthetic ATF like Mobil 1 synthetic ATF or Wolf's Head brand full synthetic ATF.


The car does come with dipstick,but You can buy a service dipstick from the Audi dealer.They will provide you the dipstick to test the fluid level.

Please avoid using incorrect oil.First always confirm the oil/fluid you are using with the parts store.But if in case the wrong fluid is already been used then don't drive with the wrong fluid filled.It will damage the transmission and its assembly gears.

Jut get the fluid drained out.There is a drain plug from where wrong fluid can be drained. If the trans pan had a drain you can drain it the dump in 4 quarts of trans oil.
Pulling the trans pan off to drain it is difficult.But on some transmission pan there is no drain plug.Its only one plug that is fill plug. And if in your case there is no drain plug.

The only other option is to go to a mechanic that has an oil evacuation machine, This is a tool that goes down the fill pipe and sucks the oil out.So it will completely suck-up old fluid out and once its empty add 4 quarts of trans oil.


These details will help.
Thanks.
