Default I have an Audi A6 Automatic. the gears seem sticky at around 60 - 75. What...

...could be causing this? this is a 1998 model and it has done 71,000 miles on the clock. There seems to be a juddering as though it is struggling to change gears and I seem to have to force my foot on the gas pedal. Once it is pass the point at which it struggles it seems ok.

I have asked this question before but I am not sure I used the right terms. I want to take it in, but I have been ripped off so many times or told the wrong thing so I want to do my research. Is there an A6 problem with the 1998 models? My car has done 71,000. I hope you can assist

Without experiencing the fault, it's hard to pin down a cause. Many regular garages haven't a clue about auto boxes, they're hugely complicated devices. Try finding a auto box specialist in Yellow Pages.
Incidentally, I once had a '98 A6 V6 auto, and one of it's many problems was with the gearbox. It ended up needing a £600 overhaul!

Is your car diesel?

The reason that I ask is that the Mass Airflow (MAF) sensors used in loads of VW/Audi/Seat etc cars around the time yours was built are notorious for failing... and in certain automatic cars, that can lead to erratic gearchanges.

I'm not saying that this is what's wrong with yours, but it's something I'd look into.

I had the MAF fail on an automatic Mercedes, and it was always in the wrong gear at the wrong time, wouldn't shift up, or down... I looked at getting the 'box rebuilt but a diagnostic showed that the MAF was faulty. Replaced that and everything was perfect again!
