Question about 2004 Audi A4
Problem feels like transmission but can't tell, sure would lke to have this solved.
Everybody knows that you change the oil filter for your engine and your engine oil. The one fact that most people DO NOT KNOW, is that this is true for automatci transmissions too. Yes, it is a little know fact by the masses that you should have your tranny fluid changed and tranny filter & magnets changed (if equipped).
For example, a few days ago I had a worried customer call me and tell me she could not afford a $1500 transmission. I assured her that the starting point wa to do a transmission service for her car. Her car did not have a tranny pan and tranny filter, so all we did was drain her ATF (automatci transmission fluid) and I noticed it was dark and almost even black. New ATF should be red like Kool-Aid. This was a sign this tranny oil was no good. I refilled her car and took it for a test drive. I was happy to find that the shifting had improved immediately. She was so happy when she got her car back.
Remember, you change your oil right? WELL, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID A TRANSMISSION SERVICE? Most people say "never" or " I don't think it has ever been done before"
Some people do this every 12,000 to 25,000 miles or once ever 2 years.
Do this and this will be your starting point. If this does not work (and this does work the majority of the time); then you may need to send the car to a tranny specialist and have the tranny rebuilt or replaced.
