    Hello all I recently changed the two shift solenoids in my a340e. Everything was fine after I changed them so I drove around then came home and parked. Wake up the next day and it wouldn't go in reverse (worked directly after replacing the solenoids). It also drives while in neutral. I do some investigating and can't even see the level of the tranny fluid on the dip stick so I had to add a full quart of fluid on top of the 1.7 that I already added back in after the job.

    My theory: Something welded together in the Tranny due to low fluid.

    My hope: Its something small I can fix myself.

    Thanks for any input!

    Right but wouldn't that just cause the gears to be off by one? The gears are not off it's just reverse and neutral that are wonky.
