Exclamation Transmission Fluid Filler location

I have an 2000 Audi A6 2.7t And I was wondering if any one has a pic of the location of the ATF filler location or can go in depth about where to find.

Thanks in advance

Default Transmission Fill Plug

Hi. I don't have a pic, but will try my best to desribe where the fill plug is located. If you look under the car at the transmission pan, you will see two plugs on the bottom of it. The plug farthest foward (near the engine) is the drain plug, and the plug farthest to the rear (near the Diff) is your full plug. If you're still not sure...the fill plug will be the plug that is the largest in diameter. Hope this helps.

I am not sure about your 2000 2.7t but if it was a 2.8 you can't just fill the trans and set the level with a stick.

On the 2.8 you need to jack the vehicle up -keeping it level - run the motor until the trans is at a specified temp as indicated on VagCom - and fill the trans until the fluid drips out of the top hole.

There are numerous discussions with details on this board - just do a search

ATF filter (as on most cars) is located in the transmission oil pan. The filter is attached to the valve body.The access is only after taking off the pan. Most filter kits come with transmission oil pan seal which should replace the old one. Look for the torque sequence and rates.

located on the pan looks like the drain plug but is recessed up into the pan- center rear of the pan.

The car needs to be running and at specific temp rasnges to fill it correctly. The only way to do it right is with a vagcom monitoring the temperature, A gravity feed Transmission fluid filler- not the pump and the car running on jack stands with two people. one filling the other shifting and watching the vagcom.

It's a friggin nightmare the first time but once you get the hang of it you'll think of it more as another Audi pita.

Sorry for the filter...
