So I replaced my radiator for the second time in the last 5 years. Bad luck I guess.
the first time I didn’t add transmission fluid and everything worked fine.
I remember researching and reading it was a sealed transmission.
But I feel like I should at least top it off. How do I top it off or make sure the proper amount of trans fluid is in the transmission?

Mate but er what has the radiator got to do with the transmission please??? Perhaps I missed something.....The auto transmission fluid does need changing and/or topping up yes (despite what Audi tell you). My old 3.2 started to change badly and a mate told me to top up the fluid, he has a fleet of luxury rental cars so I trusted him (I initially thought that the auto slushbox was on its way out). Wow, what a difference, the car became lovely to drive again!!!!
The radiator has an oil cooler built in and oil lines go into it. I am assuming it’s a transmission oil cooler but could be wrong maybe it’s engine oil?
