    WHEN I PUSH ON GAS BEFORE THREE MINUTES IT FEELS LIKE ITS SLIPPING THEN AFTER A SHORT DISTANCE ALL IS FINE

    I have the same problem, although the shift can be quite sudden at higher speeds. I am going to change the fluid and filter to see if this helps. Previous owner I think used Dextron when he should have used VW ATF.

    I was driving and heard something break. The car slowed down and stopped and would not move forward but does in reverse. The trans engages in drive but the front wheel does not turn going forward

Not overly familiar with Audis but it sounds like either a.) you have an electronic tranny that has a serious bug or b.) there's a problem in the computer of the car itself. What is sounds like is the car is taking a long time to "understand" that you're telling it to move forward. How new is the car? When you push on the gas before the three minutes, what happens?

I have an 2002 Audi a4 1.8t it will not go into reverse and will not go into drive and won't move. Could that be from the shift cable?


If it has recently started to do this it might be due to a faulty gear selector or a collapsed torque convertor.
Looking through the responses to othe similar issues in other cars it seems that in the States there are devices built in that prevent the engaging of gears if the brake laights have failed. Check these also

Good Luck

If you have C.V drive joints worn this maybe why there's a shutter when taking off,did you get them checked out recently,also along with worn CV drives joints a bush on the wish bone arms on the inside near the chassis can be wearing out,so the car wheels move forward a few inches before the chassis and car do.Also if its an auto,your transmission oil may need changing,its tick and clogging the sive,filter.Or thick in cold weather before heat up.

Unless your shade tree mechanic is an Audi expert, go to the dealer who has all the books and diagrams that tell the tech exactly where to look. The other guy may want to replace something just to troubleshoot and the factory tech should know exactly what to replace or which plug is loose.
