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 ?

Thank you.

How do you know it's bad? There's a lot of things that can happen that will cause the transmission to behave in ways it shouldn't. Is it automatic? If it's not shifting right, it could be a number of things. Is it a manual? There could be a lot of things that cause trouble there. Post more info on what it is and how it's supposedly bad, and we can go from there.

Check transmmision fuild

locate the transmission dipstick on the right or left side of the engine, toward the rear of the engine. it is similar to the oil dipstick, which is probably marked "engine oil" anyway. make sure the engine is hot and running. take the dipstick out and wipe it clean. notice the hash marks and writing inscribed on the stick. the level should be between the hash mark area for the "hot" marks. if it is low, but visible on the stick, add a 1/2 pint to a pint at a time. DON'T OVERFILL. use the correct trans fluid. probably MERCON V, the trans fluid type might be marked on the stick. it's also in the owners manual.

if you have a manual trans, you'll have to get under the vehicle and remove the fill plug located on the left side upper part of the trans. it has a fairly large head and should be easy to spot. use your finger to check the level. it should be 1/2 inch from the top of the hole.

My 1992 500 wont go pass 25-30miles per hour

i would say check brakes first, make sure you dont have a sticking caliper. take off breaks press in caliper, if it wont go in replace the caliper, i would say your brake system would be making the sticking feeling and not the transmission from how you make it sound.
