transmission fluid check, if topping it to the correct level doesn't fix it, recommend a tranny fluid and filter changes package for you-


Are you sure because sometimes if I start it up and I switch to manual it didn't read then I turn off the car start it back up it'll be good but will eventually go back to just running second

is your transmission fluid brown? verrry suspicious.

bwoakay, it's an audi with a clever switcher-dealie got it. this thing is givin' you trouble. Go back in under warranty and have it serviced.
