What is the difference between an Audi Inline Mounted and an Audi Transverse Mounted Transmission?

Many different gearbox types were available on Audi automobiles. Although these words (inline and transverse) can refer to either the engine or transmission, they are sometimes used interchangeably.

An earlier Audi model was equipped with an inline-mounted automatic gearbox. An inline gearbox is located in the engine compartment forward to rear (front to back) in the car’s body. Some more recent Audi models were introduced with transverse-mounted automatic transmissions. Transverse mounted transmissions are positioned from side to side in the vehicle’s body.

Audi Tiptronic Transmission

In 1998, a lot of Audis were sold with a Tiptronic gearbox. Audi’s manumatic type transmission is referred to as Tiptronic. Automatic Tiptronic transmissions allow the driver to change gear manually by shifting into manual mode.

Audi DSG Transmission

The Audi A6 and A7 feature a six-speed automated Tiptronic gearbox (ATG). The direct shift gearbox (DSG) was also available on certain Audi models. Currently, the 6-speed transverse-mounted DSG and the inline mounted 7-speed DSG are utilized by Audi. Both manual and automatic modes can be used with the DSG transmission. The term “Audi S-Tronic” is also applied to these transmissions from Audi.

Audi CVT Transmission

CVT stands for Continuously Variable Transmission, and this type of transmission was formerly used in some Audi 2WD models. The CVT is a continuously variable mechanism. Stepless or Multitronic transmissions are another name given to these gearboxes by Audi. The objective of a CVT transmission is to enable varying transmission gear ratios at all speeds while maintaining optimum power and RPM throughout the engine’s rpm range. This method enables the engine to run in its ideal power zone and RPM to achieve excellent fuel efficiency.

The CVT transmissions have a number of drawbacks. In order for the CVT to function effectively, it needs to be serviced more often (40,000-50,000 miles). The power is transferred through a metal chain that is compressed by a metal driver pulley in the CVT transmission. These metal components are lubricated with CVT fluid to reduce wear.

It is possible to replace only ATF in the AT pan with basic equipment since the way 2021 Audi A4 Avant’s automatic transmission has been designed. Depending on your skill level, it might take 30-90 minutes to complete and save you up to $200 if you live in a certain area.

Remove the drain plug and refill plug with a spanner or a retched with the correct size head. Drain any previous AT fluid afterward. If you’re going to replace the filter, first remove the ATF pan and replace the filter, then re-install the ATF pan with a new gasket. Replace both drain and refill plugs with new gaskets before refilling with fresh ATF.
