Question about 1997 Audi A4

1 Answer

I have a Audi A4 1997. It will not shift past 20mph after it warms up. There is something that looks like a muffler under the hood to the left, that is getting cherry red. Could it be some kind of exhaust problem? Thanks

You hit the nail on the head! The cherry red thing would be your converter. Sounds like your converter is plugged the question is why. You have a 97 car so it would not be too uncommon that the converter simply broke apart inside which is causing the restriction, Or is something wrong with the furl management system that caused the engine to run rich and melt the inside of the converter. It sounds like your going to have to replace the converter and have the fuel system checked. There may be noting wrong with it but a converter usually is not cheap and better to be safe then sorry. Good luck!

There should be a positive terminal under the hood under a red cap as i am assuming ur battery is not visible, use something steel on the motor for a ground, sometimes the batteries to newer vehicles are under the rear seat so if ur having trouble finding out how to even hook up the cables i would look under the hood for the terminal first, will probly be in a random place then if u cant find that or the battery check under the back seats

1995 Chev Silverado 2500 5.7 ... was running fine, then began missing while idling. A few minutes later, would not shift into overdrive for lack of rpm's and accelerated slowly. Was towing a trailer. ...


I stopped to assist a gas powered Winnebago stuck on the highway a while back. The engine would run but not produce much power or rpm's.

The problem turned out to be a plugged muffler which seriously reduced the air flow to the intake system and as a result the power and ability of the engine to rpm's or power.

As modern day vehicle engines are computer controlled there could be systems that are not functioning properly...which should log a code and activate a warning light on your dash board. ODBII diagnostics is always the first step to take when trying to isolate a fault.

2003 series wagon feels like I am flooring the gas pedal and won't go past 20mph, stalls when I stop, shakes, rumble under the front floor board and keeps going to 5 rpm's without shifting?????


If your transmission is an automatic, it sounds like the torque converter is locked. It could be something as simple as a bad solenoid. You need to get it to a shop and have the computer scanned to see if the solenoids have triggered a trouble code. Also, check your transmission fluid while the engine is hot and running.

Where is the Audi A4, 2006 Multitronic (CVT) Transmission Control Module (Computer Board) or Valve Body located? Thanks!


The computer usually sits on the wall next to the driver's legs, but yours could be under the seats, or under the dash, that one I don't know, but it should be kept dry, not under the hood. The valve body is in the transmission. It is accessible from underneath, just under the filter, or on top I should say, holds all your shift solenoids etc.

I don't think its actually a problem, its just because the engine is cold, i don't think you have something to wary about.
