Need a bit more details then that...

Does it rev higher without moving any quicker when you press the gas? Like a slipping clutch?

yes yes that exactly what it does. its an automatic(triptronic). when i take off i press the gas slightly and it starts reving and i let go of the pedal and then press the gas again and it does the same.

ohhh... well i don't know a single thing about audi's tip's. I do know a friend of mine who has a dadge dakota, his tranny started going and sounds, SIMILAR to that. He could stomp on the gas and it would down shift and rev up, but hardly go any faster.

Have you changed/ or had the oild changed in the Transmission?

No it has never been changed, but I though that the transmission oil doesnt have to be changed.
