The repair of an automatic transmission in an Audi S5 can vary significantly based on the specific issue or damage. Audi S5 models often have sophisticated transmission systems, and repairing them requires specialized knowledge, tools, and expertise. Here are common steps and considerations for transmission repair:
Diagnosis: Proper diagnosis is crucial. Technicians use diagnostic tools and procedures to identify the exact issue with the transmission, whether it’s related to gears slipping, unusual noises, rough shifting, or other symptoms.
Fluid Check/Replacement: Transmission fluid is vital for proper functioning. Technicians check fluid levels, condition, and quality. They might perform a fluid flush or replacement if necessary.
Transmission Rebuild/Overhaul: For severe issues, a transmission rebuild or overhaul might be needed. This involves disassembling the transmission, inspecting individual components, replacing damaged parts, and reassembling it according to factory specifications.
Solenoid or Valve Body Replacement: Problems with shifting or pressure regulation might require replacing solenoids or the valve body within the transmission.
Torque Converter Repair/Replacement: If there are issues with torque converter lockup or slipping, repair or replacement might be necessary.
Electrical and Sensor Checks: Many modern transmissions have electronic components. Technicians check sensors, wiring, and control modules to ensure they’re functioning correctly.
Seals and Gaskets: Leaks can cause transmission issues. Replacing seals and gaskets might be part of the repair process.
Software Updates/Reprogramming: Updating the transmission control module with the latest software can sometimes resolve issues related to shifting patterns or performance.
Quality Parts: Using high-quality OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or reputable aftermarket parts is essential for the longevity and proper function of the transmission.
Road Testing: After repairs, a thorough road test is conducted to ensure the transmission operates correctly under various driving conditions.
Due to the complexity of transmission systems, it’s highly recommended to have repairs done by qualified professionals or certified technicians who specialize in Audi vehicles. They have the expertise and access to proper tools and diagnostic equipment to perform accurate repairs and ensure the transmission’s optimal performance.
Solve problems with Audi’s automatic transmission with the help of experts
Audi’s automatic transmissions usually exhibit the same problems as their stable counterpart, Volkswagen. At A Automotive, we do a lot of repairs to the Audi transmission.
Audi transmissions installed on cars produced after mid-1995 are very high-tech in operation. These transmissions can have a number of common problems with an automatic transmission. Sometimes these Audi transmissions can have electronic faults rather than requiring major repairs. This is especially true for Audi A4 models from 2001 onwards.

Problems with Audi automatic transmission
Problems with an Audi transmission are usually detected in one of the following ways:
The dashboard light is flashing or lit
Abrupt switching or jamming
Pulsation sensation when accelerating from a place
Loss of reverse gear (a common problem on the Audi A4 CVT)
Loss of gear shift (stuck in one gear)
Delay in turning on forward and reverse gears
Feeling of pulsation, vibration at low revs with a small opening of the throttle.
Problems with the Audi multitronic transmission
A large number of Audi vehicles are equipped with the CVT 01J gearbox, which Audi calls the “multitronic transmission”.
While this powertrain generally provides good maintenance, some owners face handling issues. Common complaints about the Audi multitronic powertrain include:
trembling sensation during takeoff
sliding or jumping up to 50 km/h
loss of hill hold function.
Problems with Audi’s transmission often arise from the fact that the forward clutch lacks a holding force.
To remedy this, Audi has proposed replacing the six with seven friction discs on the front friction. В A Automotive, of course, we’re making this recommended update.
When upgrading the front-end clutch assembly, we also put the new firmware on the computer. This ensures that the valve body is operating with the correct parameters and that the correct gear ratio is achieved on the pulleys that drive the chain. If this is not done, the modified clutch assembly will be damaged, and the multitronic transmission will not last as long as it should.
ZF transmission malfunctions in Audi-C5
Audi either makes its own conventional automatic transmissions or uses popular ZF transmissions made in Germany. These transmissions are widely used by European automakers. Audi ZF transmissions tend to cause torque converter shake. For the driver, this usually feels like a feeling of pulsation when driving with a small throttle at a speed of 40-50 km / h. Eliminating this transmission malfunction requires major repairs and modernization of the torque converter.
