Question about 1997 Audi A4
I have an 97 Audi A4 with automatic transmission. It has a problem when I accelerate the car. Basically, when I gradually accelerate the car, let's say from 0, the engine would run faster, as expected. But as the rpm of the car increases (as displayed in the control panel) the transmission would not change gear at the right time, but it eventually changes gear when the rpm becomes exceedindly high. This situation happens in cars with manual transmission, when the driver does not change gears as the car's rpm reaches high levels.
So, it appears that my car has a delay problem with its autiomaic transmission. Could you tell me if it is fixable, and how much labor does it require to fix, how it could be fixed, and how much it would cost if I take my car to a car repair station ?
Fist thing to do is change the transmission fluid and filter. Audi says the transmissions have lifetime fluid, but that's bull - change it first and see if that helps. If not, have the car scanned by a shop and have the chassis codes looked into. If there's a true electrical control problem, there should be at least one code stored (which may not trip the check-engine light).
