I agree with shanat - change it out (it's a pretty easy fix). You may be surprised how many codes go away with it changed. Change it, reset the codes, and drive the car, and then you'll see how many come back and how many go away.

If you post the codes you have, we can probably help you narrow down their sources.

I think its worth a try, as having that problem may be triggering multiple codes, give it a try.

My 97 audi A4 pinging after driving for 10 to 15 minutes.

That 'ping' caused by pre-ignition can punch holes in the tops of pistons so should not be ignored.
There is a device called a 'knock sensor' that feeds information to the computer which, in turn, retards the spark very quickly to prevent it from happening.  Very poor gasoline can cause this but watching over the ignition noise allows a car to tolerate a broad range of octanes without suffering damage.   
BTW, when ping occurs, this means that the spark has been supplied too early in the compression stroke and this causes the expanding gases to hammer the piston down before it can complete its stroke; this not only will damage the pistons but robs the engine of power, something you have already noticed.

You have to refill it using a small funel through the dipstick hole. Thats how it's been for years. I wish they would think of a way to refill these things in some other way.

A4 Transmission shifting

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).
