A4 1.8T Tranny
Please tell me if this has already been raised, I have not been a lister
My '97 A4 1.8t has the 5sp auto tranny, and aside from being a bit
sluggish at times, which I know has been raised, I have noticed on 2
occasions a rather disturbing problem.
Both times I had just turned into a parking lot (the same one) where I
came off a flat road and began going up a slight hill after the turn.
Both times, of course, I had let off the throttle before making the
turn, then gotten back on it slightly. However, these two times, I
could just hear the engine rev, as if I had the clutch pressed in--but I
have an auto! The tranny was clearly slipping. Then, it jolted--both
times--and made quite a THUD. Not what you want to hear from your 16k
What I need to know is: has anyone else had this problem? If so, what
did the dealer/you do to get the problem fixed? My service advisor is
not too knowledgeable about the A4, it seems, so I doubt it would get
communicated properly from me to him to the technicians. Also, does
anyone know if I let this continue, could I be damaging my car?
