1998 Audi A4 Quattro ProblemsFluid Leak From Transmission Output Shaft Seal
A fluid leak may develop from the propeller shaft seal on the rear of the transmission. Our technicians tell us that replacing the seal will commonly correct this concern.
Clogged drains can allow rainwater to accumulate in the plenum tray (at the base of the windshield). The water may leak into the vehicle's interior, brake booster, or electrical components, which can lead to major problems. Our technicians recommend keeping the tray clear of leaves, pine needles, and other debris.
1998 Audi A4 Quattro QuestionsIs the torque converter the same for a 2.8 and 1.8t on the Quattro? (1 answer)
I need a torque converter for my 98 a4 with a 1.8t and I found one that was labeled for 2.8, is the torque converter the same spec for both?
Never used the back wiper on Avant Wagon. Grandchildren turned it on somewhere in car. No info in Owners Manual on it. Even my factory-trained mechanic husband (retired) couldnt figure it out. :)
I changed the timing belt, heads, and head gaskets. The car starts up and runs, but now its acting like the transmission is slipping. I've never had any problems with the transmission in the past, and no fluid leaked while working on my car.
