My 2004 tt transmission is hard shifting in 3rd, 4th and sometimes in 6th when it gets warm. Works good when it is cold. anyone ever have this problem. Thinking maybe the rpm sensors. Any ideas. Need Help.

Hello, jpsmith

Just to be sure, do you have a manual or automatic transmission?

Hi,
if its a tiptronic then i just recently had the exact same problem, where it feels like its gonna knock your teeth out. my car has got 71000 miles on it. i know nothing about this transmission so i went to 4 different shops including the dealership and they all told me it was the clutches between the gears. sounded like BS because the car has relativly low mileage, and they all said to replace the whole tranny, but i went to one of my dads friends who is a master mechanic that specializes in european cars and he said it was the valve body in the tranny. so i got it rebuilt and he put it in and its running just like the day i bought it. Turns out its a common problem, the guy had 2 other TT's in his shop for the same problem, but the dealership says its normal again BS. Depending on the mileage it would most likely work.
sorry if this was to long of a message but when i was looking for an answer i couldnt find one so thought i might clarify the trouble i went through. haha. hope it helps.

That what i was thinking also. I figured it had to do with the solinoids. And where would you be located, South Ca would be great. Now I just have to find someone besides the dealer to work on it.

It did it for a couple days and then I stopped driving it. I drive 120 miles a day ( Los Angeles Traffic )so I haven't driven it much. Here is the big question. Do you know what the Transmission shop did. IE>>> replace the solenoids and springs. and how much did the bill cost. I was looking at taking it to the dealer just so they could diagnose it. Also looked at just putting in another valve body and see what it would do.

Dont waste your time by going to the dealership they will charge you around $150 for nothing, and all the tell you is they recommend that you change the whole tranny. they dont like to do small work like that. Trust me ive been through it they wont even diagnose it, but they'll charge you for sure. the new valve body will run ou aroung $950 depending on the shop but this quote is from the dealer and this does include the solenoids i believe, that is without labor i didnt even ask how much it would be with labor. i took it to KB motorsports in san marcos and he had the valve body sent out and had it rebuilt they replaced all the solenoids, springs and redid the valves for around $645 but labor was a killer, it took around 3-5 weeks and about $1300-1800 bucks all together but thats because the valve body was malfunctioning the first time and he had to use more tranny fluid for the second time, but the guy does good work and the car is running awesome and i tend to drive it alittle hard.

Well I thank you for your time and answers. It helped alot. Just one last question. Did you get any codes when you were having the shifting problem. I haven't had one code pop up at all.

I only have 53K miles on my 2003 TT, so I reached out to the audiusa.com Customer Care center through the chat feature on their website. They told me I HAD TO take it to the dealer for a diagnosis so they could see what the codes were and make a determination about whether or not they were going to assist in any way. I did that (paid $150). The fault code was P0840 – transmission fluid pressure sensor/switch A.

After a week of looking into it, they decided that because of the age of the car (regardless of the fact that it has only 53K miles!), they were not going to be able to assist other than to give me the "warranty discount" price of $6400 to replace the transmission. To replace the valve body is going to be $2380; however, like the other folks responding here, they are insisting that it would require a whole new transmission. And fixing the valve body won't do anything. I am picking the car up tomorrow and bringing it to another place here in town (Temecula) so someone can actually look at the transmission and decide what it needs, instead of insisting without actually opening it up. No one at the dealership ever physically inspected the transmission.

They did offer to help me out with the cost of a new Audi, if I am interested. But I had to ask, "If I can't count on Audi to stand behind their product for more than 50K miles, why would I even consider another Audi?!"

THIS PROBLEM IS COMMON ON ALL THIS TRANSMISION 6 SPEED YOU MAY HAVE CODE FOR SOLENOID PRESURE IF YOU GOTED JUST REPLACE THE VALVE BODY COMPLETE THAT SOLENOID DSNT COME ALONE . AFTER THAT YOU SEE HOW GREAT ARE YOUR CAR. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE TRANSMISION FLUID LEVEL ARE OK AND BASSIC SETTING IS SET AFTER REPLACE THE NEW VALVE BODY.
