Audi A6 Transmission Fluid Capacity and Fluid Type

Replacing your transmission oil isn’t a task that you’ll do frequently, but it’s still an essential one. It’s critical to use only the correct fluid and change it at least every 30-50k miles if you want your Audi to keep on driving past the 100k mile mark, with all of Audi’s torque converter and transmission issues throughout the years.

Issues with rough, noisy, and erratic shifting may often be addressed by replacing the fluid. Instead of bringing your automobile to the dealership for a costly transmission oil change next time you’re due, try our step-by-step instructions to do it yourself.

What transmission fluid does Audi use?

  • 2017-2020 Audi Q7 2.0T models use VW G 060 162 A2 transmission fluid.

The 2022 Audi A6 is a smart pick among luxury automobiles, with its high-tech features, high-quality interior, and smooth ride. 45 models are powered by a four-cylinder engine and 55 vehicles are powered by a V-6; all-wheel drive is standard across the range.

The Audi A6’s dynamics may be too calm for some enthusiasts, but rivals such as the BMW 5-series and the Mercedes-Benz E-class don’t provide sports sedan thrills either. Instead, the Audi is aimed at modern buyers with its digital dashboard and plentiful driver-assistance technologies. Its appearance appears to be pricey and elegant, yet restrained; more outgoing consumers might prefer the swooper A7 sedan for its sleek, sexy appeal.

Changing your Audi A6 transmission filter isn’t as simple as changing the filters in other cars. The filter, which is often a metal plate with a fiber material that captures pollutants, is one of many components included in your transmission filter. Your Audi A6 will also contain a gasket, pickup tube, and rubber seal, all of which may need to be changed along with the filter. Every 30,000/50,000 miles, your Audi A6’s transmission filter must be replaced. For more information on mileage and time intervals, consult your car’s maintenance handbook.
