Audi automatic transmission fluid levels should be checked at regular intervals. Most 1992-on Audi models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the Audi transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the Audi automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model) of the transmission drain pan.


Thank you alabamaghost. From what I researched, you are correct in most cases. Ironically, I found that mine actually has a dipstick. (Unusual, but true.) I have just bought the car, and the engine compartment was so filthy I couldn't even see the red of the dipstick. Cleaning the area revealed it. And none too soon as there was barely a drop of fluid on the end of the dispstick. Thank you again for taking time out of your day to advise me. It's greatly appreciated!
