    Hi guys,
    This is my first post here!
    I'm Driving an Audi A6 G4 2011 2.8 FSI quattro s-tronic 7 gears with little less than 75000 km.

    Was drivingon the highway when suddenly the car was changing gears while not accelerating, it will throw down a gear, then back up in less than a second. after 1-2 KM a gearbox icon showed in the dash, with message about some gear malfunction, limited functionality, you can keep driving (not sure what was the actualy message).

    I drove about 5km before i could find a place to stop, checked under the car, there was oil pouring under the gearbox (checked engine all - fine, coolant fine ...all fine). so i susspect its the gearbox oil.

    After an hour, a tow truck arrived, we started the car again, and tried to drive it up the truck, but no gears were to engage (also there were a message that the reverse is not available).

    Towed the truck away and waiting for the company to call me with a diagnosis... But i'd rather not be billed for a whole gearbox!

    what might be the problem here? could it be just some oil pipe? replace it , fill oil and go ?
    anyone had this issue before? i searched the internet but could not find anything!

    I would really appreciate to hear what you guys have to say and learn from your experience.

    Thanks
