    i have a 2001 audi allroad with 180k miles. problem began when i started having problems backing up my "up-hill" drive way. later my check engine light illuminates. i took it in to my mechanic (the motorworks" in winston salem NC and he advises me that the torque converter has lost some fluid due to a small leak and it causes the light. the only repair he offers is a replacement. parts and labor quote was $3,375.00. that's alot of $ for repairs to a 9 year old car.
