Question about 2000 Audi A4

1 Answer

Just after a week of purchase the Reverse Gear and Top Gear stopped working. So, I took it to the dealer, and he had come up with a $900 bill for replacement of Multifuntional Switch. I was not very sad, because it was just an electrical glitch, and did not hurt the Tranny. I also told the dealer to do regular maintence on the car since it was due at 99k miles. The total expense inclusive of alll the jobs was $1,614. I took this risk to avoid any future trouble, and expected this car will ride for atleast 6 moths trouble-free. The dealer took a week here to fix it. Just a week after the episode, the car stopped on a signal, and refused to start. This time, I had to tow the car to the dealer, and he promised to have a free check, since he had recently worked on it. Two days later he comes up with a quote of $5,700, reason: a broken Timing Belt. I do not understand how he calculated that cost.

I would change the transmission filter and fluid first. It could be that your filter is old and stopping the transmission from working properly.

If a transmission fluid and filter change does not solve the problem, then it's time for a transmission rebuild or replacement. This can often happen if the car was driven improperly, such as sudden stops and starts, jamming the clutch into gear (in manuals), down shifting while the car is in another gear or from old age.

Bad syncro for third gear. Sorry, but you aren't fixing this one yourself, unless you replace the transmission yourself.

1998 Chrysler Voyager Transmission problem


FYI, My 99' just had a rebuild put in it $2000. Lent it to family, and even before they left I was worried that mileage etc, was just about time for it to go. I had no warning signs, just something in the back of my mind said "anytime now". They made it to their destination 3 or 4 hours away, no problem all the way,then next morning running into town for groceries, spit, sputter clank, bang, done ! Piece came right out through the top of the transmission casing , big hole & a gear laying on top of the casing. Needless to say, they felt bad, but I just had a premonition it was time. That's why when those things act up, don't play around, get it diagnosed a.s.a.p. Trying to get through the week, can cost you big time. Here's to hoping yours is an easy, inexpensive fix.
