Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a audi 2.8 v6 automatic 1996. I cannot get reverse gear on the car. If I put the car in drive it holds back before it goes to the front. The gear indicators on the dashbaord are all lit up. Don't know which gear I am in. Please help. 2002 A4 1.8 Quattro. Brought the car in to Canadian Tire for them to check a mysterious oil leak. They shampooed the engine to clear the engine area for a better view (I guess) and added a dye in the oil (to locate the leak) and proceeded to run the engine for 1 hour to check for leaks. They phoned me to say there was no leak and to come and get the car. Paid $100., got in the car, put it in D, heard a small clunk and then the car would hardly move without having to push way down on the gas pedal. Tried to reverse but it would not move, PRNDS all lit up, engine light on and the engine runnig ok ( sputtering a little) What the heck is going on? Left the car there after vowing to return to speak to the manager- it was 5:45pm. Is it possible CdnTire caused this or is it coincidence? They do not have a fault code reader and admit BMW and Audi are not their strength....so why do they service them? Sure take the money and when things go wrong ...uh it's not our fault you will have to go to the dealer for that! I will have to do that and see if that is the case and sue them if they are to blame.
That car is full of sensors if they sprayed the motor with a hose or what ever it could trigger any or all of the sensors to read off you can take it to most any reliable mechanic shop and have them hook it up on a computer dianostic machine for some where around 30 to 60 dollors. If you just want the codes the the computer will give you a code reader on cost about 90 dollars and they work on most any vehicle from 96 and up all you have to due is plug them in and follow the instructions on the screen they are simple to opperate.
