It is looking like I'm going to be swapping the transmission in the '88
5kCSTQW soon. I can't explain the 2nd gear behavior with a simple shift
linkage. I thought that the quattro transmissions were built fairly
robustly, but I've heard of other cases where even 4kQs have had trannys
swapped out. I wanted to see if I could hear about any more experiences
from the list ... submitted for your thoughts:
Have others out there had to have the transmissions in their quattro
Any thoughts as to how much a used (but unrebuilt) tranny will cost?
Should I not even consider an unrebuilt tranny and just have mine rebuilt?
Are there tranny versions that have a better rep than others?
How much does one of those suckers weigh? (I'm sure the days of my Fox's
FWD box are long gone :)
It might be best simply to reply to me via direct e-mail. I'll collect
the info I get and submit the results to the archives.
