Issue with my 2011 Audi A6 gearbox.

I have a 2011 model Audi A6 and thecar jumps when driving, says gearbox malfunction, but you can still drive. I flushed out oil and changed the gearbox filter and still the problem remains. But I noticed when the car has driven for a while it will stop and it drives smoothly.

Please help

Hi Felix,

Looking at the 2.0 TDI automatic model at the start of the 2011 generation A6, there are a couple of known issues with the gearbox. The first is with the hydraulic accumulator, which may cause juddering. This potentially needs to be replaced to eradicate the issue. A separate issue comes from the transmission control module that can lead to error codes appearing on the dashboard - it requires reprogramming most likely.
