    I bought a 2003 v6 4motion Highline estate a couple of years ago with the 5speed tiptronic box . Done 15k in this time.
    I was told the gearbox oil was changed at 80k when I bought it. It is now at 125k miles. A new genuine gear selector position switch was fitted at 114k.

    Problem started about 3 months 2k miles ago.
    Initially the revs would fluctuate at a steady 45mph without speed change. Now the problem is when in D gear change is no longer smooth and seamless, but jolts and gives a bit of a clunk taking up the drive.

    I have checked the engine and gearbox with VCDS and there are no faults. (lots of vcds experience as previously owned a different B5.5 for 12years)
    There are no leaks so presuming oil level is o.k. Also I found that Tiptronics should have a different, more expensive oil.
    Any idea what happens if the oil for ordinary autos was put in a Tiptronic for economy, or is low.
    Is it on it's way to becoming terminal or something stupidly simple ?

    thanks

    I would change the oil and filter to start with, using only ZF or OE oil.

    Have found out oil was changed in 2011 . Oil and filter change as you suggest is where to start. Will start saving for oe oil and filter through TPS .
    Thanks for pointer.
