Hi guys

My friend change the transmission oil on my 2005 V6 TDI touareg and he put 3.5 litres of oil. however he did not tell me until the car just lost drive when i was driving it after 20 miles. The car starts engages into gears but it wont drive. He thinks its because there low gearbox oil. any ideas what it could be ? i am going to add some oil in it and see.

I suggest you use the Search function on here, read up on the threads about changing the transmission fluid and then start again with someone who knows what they are doing.

Has he even used the correct fluid? It certainly doesn't sound like he's used the right quantity or possibly even understood the need to get the correct temperature set up for the fill.

A new box for a Touareg is about £5,000. The ATF change is not something you hand over to a mate to do who doesn't know what he's doing.
