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.
