Audi A3 Transmission Capacity and Transmission Fluid Type


The Audi A3’s transmission fluid must be changed at certain intervals. The replacement of the vehicle’s transmission fluid is a good idea since the transmission is one of the most expensive components in it.

The fluid in a manual gearbox is more readily available and easier to replace than the automatic variant, so if you have some mechanical expertise, this operation should not be too difficult for you. Replace the transmission fluid whether you drive your Audi hard or if it appears that you’ve been putting a lot of miles on it.

Most owner’s manuals, on the other hand, will urge changing the transmission fluid every 90,000 miles.

The Audi A3 is built on the same platform as the VW Jetta/Golf, and it comes standard with an advanced automated manual gearbox known as S-Tronic by Audi, but also referred to as the DSG or direct shift gearbox by Volkswagen and most others.

The computer monitors what gear you’re in, which of the two clutches are engaged at any given time, and uses fluid for both lubrication and hydraulic force. If your fluid runs out or becomes contaminated, your gears may grind or the clutches may not engage smoothly.

Your car probably has a check valve on the bottom of the transmission in the bottom of your vehicle, which you can use to inspect the transmission fluid. When checking the fluid, we recommend having a professional with a hydraulic lift or an underground bay conduct your transmission fluid test because your automobile must be level while doing so.

What Is The Audi Transmission Fluid Change Interval For DSG Transmissions?

What is the recommended service interval for replacing Audi DSG transmission fluid? The suggested service interval for changing the Audi gearbox transmission fluid on DSG transmissions is every 40,000 miles. This includes both the gearbox and filter. Those who drive frequently in extreme heat, have a lot of city driving, tow a trailer, or engage in other strenuous activities might want to change their DSG transmission fluid more often or sooner. It’s critical to change your 6-speed Audi DSG transmission liquid at regular intervals to maintain its longevity.

The Audi DTM was a successful grand-touring car that served as the basis for many models, including the Audi A4. The direct shift gearbox (DSG) was used in a variety of Audis from 1992 through today. It has a superior RPM control and shift speed for more powerful and quicker shifting. Both manual and automatic modes are available with the DSG transmission.
