The car has been standing for 3 months without a battery but started up ok. Before storage, idling was down to 400 rpm and she jerked slightly only 1st to 2nd. Now kicks in violently and revs up at every change.
Any ideas guys...???
PS..In tip tronic it smooths out slightly if i take my foot off the accelerator.
Don't believe what audi tells you on a ZF transaxle.
Drop the transaxle oil pan and filter and examine them….if the pan is really filthy and crunchy bits in it, consider dropping the valve body and splitting it to clean the speed sensor controller screen as well as the shift solenoid(s) screens(s).
