Control of the ATF level in the automatic transmission

In the automatic transmission synthetic liquid, the English name Automatic Transmission Fluid is filled in. It serves as lubricant means and a control facility of the transmission. ATF has to have the admission of Audi, and Audi allows to use only ATF with the designation ESSO LT 71141. In a warehouse of spare parts this ATF is offered at number of a detail G052 152 162 A1 or A2.

Unlike the previous models in A4 there is no probe for measurement of the ATF level. Today check of the ATF level became the long procedure which is carried out in a workshop which can be carried out only by means of the device for reading of malfunctions of V.A.G 1551 for storing only it can determine the exact temperature of oil in the transmission. It has crucial importance for the correct level of oil as ATF under the influence of temperature strongly extends.

Therefore an inspection of the ATF level is carried out only in a workshop. Level of liquid is checked only through each 30 000 km. Exception: the case of the transmission which is strongly soiled by oil calls for premature check!
