ments. To maintain a consistent shift quality throughout
the entire
transmission service life, various control and regulation parame
ters must be adapted continuously and the determined adaptation
values must be stored. These adaptations or this programming
process are called adaptation.

The goal of a transmission adaptation is to compensate for pro


duction tolerances of the transmission components and their
changes throughout the service life. The adaptation values act as
corrective values or offsets which are added to or subtracted from
the values (applied values) stored permanently in the transmis

adaptation conditions are met.
The following information provides an overview of the criteria that
must be met during an adaptation:
The ATF must be within a certain temperature range.
A certain gear or selector lever position must be engaged.
The engine load must be within a certain range. Generally a
very low engine load or very light pressure on the accelerator
pedal is required.
There must be no Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) entries in
the transmission control module.
Certain vehicle conditions must be present such as accelera
tion or deceleration, constant driving, vehicle stopped with the
engine running at idle, etc.
There must be good road conditions, optimum road surface,

Measure the length of the bleed pipe on the -VAS6262A- .
Shorten it if necessary. Refer to page 84 .
Test Conditions

The transmission must not be in the emergency running.

The vehicle must be horizontal.

Selector lever in P and engine at idle.

The A/C and the heater are off.

At the start of the testing, the ATF temperature must not be


higher than 30 C (86 F); let the transmission cool down.
Note

The -Vehicle Diagnostic Tester- reads the temperature of the

ATF.

The ATF level will vary depending on the temperature of the

ATF.

It is possible to overfill the ATF if the level is checked when the

temperature is too low.

It is possible to underfill the ATF if the level is checked when

the temperature is too high.

Only use the ATF available as a replacement part for the plan

etary gear in 8-speed automatic transmission 0C8. Other oils


could cause malfunctions or damage to the transmission. ATF
specification for corresponding engines. Refer to
5 Capacities, page 5 .
Caution

Do not start the engine or tow the vehicle if there is no ATF


in the transmission.
Too little or too much ATF will impair the transmission.
Perform this check twice if the ATF circuit to the cooler
was opened during a repair. Important: The ATF must be
at least 80 C (176 F) after the first check. Perform a road
test with tester. Check the ATF level after it has cooled
down as described.

Note
The ATF level is checked at the ATF check hole.
The ATF level is correct if a small amount of fluid drips out of

the check hole (this is normal because the fluid expands as it


heats up) between 35 and 45 C (95 and 113 F) (for hot
countries 50 C (122 F)).

Drive the vehicle onto a 4-column hoist or over a service pit so


that it is absolutely level.
Remove the rear noise insulation -2-. Refer to Body Exte
rior; Rep. Gr. 66 ; Underbody Trim Panels .
Start the engine and let it run at idle.

ATF flows out of the overflow pipe.
Note
Even if the level of oil is too low, first a small amount will flow

out of the overflow tubes, because it fills during operation.

The ATF inspection plug must be installed again before the

ATF reaches a temperature of 45 C (113 F) (50 C (122 F)


with hot climates).

If ATF leaks from ATF check hole before temperature has


reached 40 C (104 F), ATF level arrow is OK.

If no ATF drips out of the ATF check hole before 40 C (104


F) is reached, then the ATF level is not OK. Fill the ATF. Refer
to page 89 .

If ATF is OK:
Replace the check plug gasket -arrow-.

Cautions & Warnings


Please read these WARNINGS and CAUTIONS before proceeding with maintenance
and repair work. You must answer that you have read and you understand these
WARNINGS and CAUTIONS before you will be allowed to view this information.
=

If you lack the skills, tools and equipment, or a suitable workshop for any procedure described in
this manual, we suggest you leave such repairs to an authorized Audi retailer or other qualified
shop. We especially urge you to consult an authorized Audi retailer before beginning repairs on
any vehicle that may still be covered wholly or in part by any of the extensive warranties issued by
Audi.

Disconnect the battery negative terminal (ground strap)whenever you work on the fuel system or
the electrical system. Do not smoke or work near heaters or other fire hazards. Keep an approved
fire extinguisher handy.

Audi is constantly improving its vehicles and sometimes these changes, both in parts and
specifications, are made applicable to earlier models. Therefore, part numbers listed in this
manual are for reference only. Always check with your authorized Audi retailer parts department
for the latest information.
Protected by copyright. Copying for private or commercial purposes, in part or in whole, is not

permitted unless authorised by AUDI AG. AUDI AG does not guarantee or accept any liability
with respect to the correctness of information in this document. Copyright by AUDI AG.

Any time the battery has been disconnected on an automatic transmission vehicle, it will be
necessary to reestablish Transmission Control Module (TCM) basic settings using the VAG 1551
Scan Tool (ST).

Never work under a lifted vehicle unless it is solidly supported on stands designed for the purpose.
Do not support a vehicle on cinder blocks, hollow tiles or other props that may crumble under
continuous load. Never work under a vehicle that is supported solely by a jack. Never work under
the vehicle while the engine is running.

For vehicles equipped with an anti-theft radio, be sure of the correct radio activation code before
disconnecting the battery or removing the radio. If the wrong code is entered when the power is
restored, the radio may lock up and become inoperable, even if the correct code is used in a later
attempt.

If you are going to work under a vehicle on the ground, make sure that the ground is level. Block
the wheels to keep the vehicle from rolling. Disconnect the battery negative terminal (ground
strap) to prevent others from starting the vehicle while you are under it.

Do not attempt to work on your vehicle if you do not feel well. You increase the danger of injury to
yourself and others if you are tired, upset or have taken medicine or any other substances that
may impair you or keep you from being fully alert.

Never run the engine unless the work area is well ventilated. Carbon monoxide (CO) kills.

Always observe good workshop practices. Wear goggles when you operate machine tools or work
with acid. Wear goggles, gloves and other protective clothing whenever the job requires working
with harmful substances.

Tie long hair behind your head. Do not wear a necktie, a scarf, loose clothing, or a necklace when
you work near machine tools or running engines. If your hair, clothing, or jewelry were to get
caught in the machinery, severe injury could result.

Cautions & Warnings


=

Do not re-use any fasteners that are worn or deformed in normal use. Some fasteners are
designed to be used only once and are unreliable and may fail if used a second time. This
includes, but is not limited to, nuts, bolts, washers, circlips and cotter pins. Always follow the
recommendations in this manual - replace these fasteners with new parts where indicated, and
any other time it is deemed necessary by inspection.

Illuminate the work area adequately but safely. Use a portable safety light for working inside or
under the vehicle. Make sure the bulb is enclosed by a wire cage. The hot filament of an
accidentally broken bulb can ignite spilled fuel or oil.

Friction materials such as brake pads and clutch discs may contain asbestos fibers. Do not create
dust by grinding, sanding, or by cleaning with compressed air. Avoid breathing asbestos fibers and
asbestos dust. Breathing asbestos can cause serious diseases such as asbestosis or cancer, and
may result in death.

Finger rings should be removed so that they cannot cause electrical shorts, get caught in running
machinery, or be crushed by heavy parts.

Before starting a job, make certain that you have all the necessary tools and parts on hand. Read
all the instructions thoroughly, do not attempt shortcuts. Use tools that are appropriate to the work
and use only replacement parts meeting Audi specifications. Makeshift tools, parts and
procedures will not make good repairs.

Catch draining fuel, oil or brake fluid in suitable containers. Do not use empty food or beverage
containers that might mislead someone into drinking from them. Store flammable fluids away from
by copyright.

with respect to the correctness of information in this document. Copyright by AUDI AG.

Use pneumatic and electric tools only to loosen threaded parts and fasteners. Never use these
tools to tighten fasteners, especially on light alloy parts. Always use a torque wrench to tighten
fasteners to the tightening torque listed.

Keep sparks, lighted matches, and open flame away from the top of the battery. If escaping
hydrogen gas is ignited, it will ignite gas trapped in the cells and cause the battery to explode.

Be mindful of the environment and ecology. Before you drain the crankcase, find out the proper
way to dispose of the oil. Do not pour oil onto the ground, down a drain, or into a stream, pond, or
lake. Consult local ordinances that govern the disposal of wastes.

The air-conditioning (A/C) system is filled with a chemical refrigerant that is hazardous. The A/C
system should be serviced only by trained automotive service technicians using approved
refrigerant recovery/recycling equipment, trained in related safety precautions, and familiar with
regulations governing the discharging and disposal of automotive chemical refrigerants.

Before doing any electrical welding on vehicles equipped with anti-lock brakes (ABS), disconnect
the battery negative terminal (ground strap) and the ABS control module connector.

Do not expose any part of the A/C system to high temperatures such as open flame. Excessive
heat will increase system pressure and may cause the system to burst.

Cautions & Warnings


=

When boost-charging the battery, first remove the fuses for the Engine Control Module (ECM), the
Transmission Control Module (TCM), the ABS control module, and the trip computer. In cases
where one or more of these components is not separately fused, disconnect the control module
connector(s).

Some of the vehicles covered by this manual are equipped with a supplemental restraint system
(SRS), that automatically deploys an airbag in the event of a frontal impact. The airbag is operated
by an explosive device. Handled improperly or without adequate safeguards, it can be accidentally
activated and cause serious personal injury. To guard against personal injury or airbag system
failure, only trained Audi Service technicians should test, disassemble or service the airbag
system.

Do not quick-charge the battery (for boost starting) for longer than one minute, and do not exceed
16.5 volts at the battery with the boosting cables attached. Wait at least one minute before
boosting the battery a second time.

Never use a test light to conduct electrical tests of the airbag system. The system must only be
tested by trained Audi Service technicians using the VAG 1551 Scan Tool (ST) or an approved
equivalent. The airbag unit must never be electrically tested while it is not installed in the vehicle.

Some aerosol tire inflators are highly flammable. Be extremely cautious when repairing a tire that
may have been inflated using an aerosol tire inflator. Keep sparks, open flame or other sources of
ignition away from the tire repair area. Inflate and deflate the tire at least four times before
breaking the bead from the rim. Completely remove the tire from the rim before attempting any
repair.

When driving or riding in an airbag-equipped vehicle, never hold test equipment in your hands or
lap while the vehicle is in motion. Objects between you and the airbag can increase the risk of
injury in an accident.
