I have a 1994 Audi 100, 2.3 E. The autobox regularly seesm to go into 'limp' mode, either taking forever to change up, or simply sticking in the low gear range. Coming to a complete stop, switching the car off then on again temporarily fixes the problem. Any ideas?

as you have already replaced the fluid then check all the electrical connections of the gearbox, remove each connector in turn and spray with contact cleaner. Check that the wiring to the gearbox is in good condition with no chafing or frayed wire

If this is OK then check the selector lever linkage / cable under the car for any broken parts and or missing bolts as if this is coming adrift then it can rub on the car body or just bind up

Then - you should top up if low and re try it - or, if its level is ok - and condition is ok - then the next step is to drain it off - open it up and clean the filters inside -- refill and retry it..
