My car is shifting hard when its put into gear and while it is in motion! It had did this once before but then stopped for weeks, then a couple of days ago the same problem arose, but it continues to shift really hard and rough! I'm unsure if my tranny fluid is low b/c i don't know where its located! Could my tranny fluid be low? Or do I need a new transmission?

My check engine light, abs,and air bag light is on. I recently had o2 sensors replaced and now the car is running very poorly. There is little acceleration, misfires, and just a terrible sounding engine. i took it to a foreign car specialist who said that the computer is shorted out and needs to be replaced. I need to find out where it is located so that I can get the part number to try to find a used or remanufactured one myself. where is the computer on a 2001 a6 quattro wagon?

Recently my 5cylinder 1991 Audi 90 has been stalling shortly after I get going. If I push the gas pedal to the floor it runs good until I release the gas pedal. Usually within 5 minutes it starts to run normally and is good until I shut the car off and restart it. Any ideas?

Theres a noise coming from either underneath the car or under the hood when I accelerate from a stop or while turning, almost a slight whirring or moaning. I know i need brakes and maybe rotors, but is something else wrong?

At what point should you have the timing belt replaced ?

A few days ago I noticed my '01 Audi allroad's air suspension compressor goes on at 30 mph and usually doesn't shut off until I slow down to 10 mph. I just bought the car about 2 weeks ago and I've never noticed the compressor going this long. What could cause this issue? I seem to have no problems with the air suspension itself, when I come out to my car in the morning the suspension has not deflated, so I'm assuming the air compressor issue has little or nothing to do with the air struts themselves.

Cant find the transmission oil dipstick to check the oil, why would it be so hard to find? where is it? and how do I add tranny oil?

My car simply does not start!

Hi,

I will have added approximately 1 1/2 qts of oil since my last oil change 5k miles ago. I change the oil every 5k miles. It's not burning it as far as I know becuz I passed CT emmissions with no problems.

No leaks that I can see also.

Is this usage normal for this engine?

Thanks for your help.

Miss fire# 2

what would cause my radiator fans not to be working

Stock 95 S-6 turbo five cylinder with 180,000 miles. It hesitates and surges when try to accelerate but runs ok as just cruise at even speed. Ran three bottles of BG44 to clean injectors and seemed to help initially but then started again. took off injectors and were spraying even pattern. Listened with stethoscope and all clicking about the same. took them out and all spraying same diamond pattern. replaced fuel filter. replaced plugs with Bosch from dealer. replaced connectors between coils and plugs. put on a new charger or activator that fires coils ( on firewall and plugs into 3 coils per activator) and made no improvement. Took to Audi dealer who charged $125 for diagnostic but he found no solution to the problem. Help would appreciate any suggestions of what else could be causing this problem.

I have a 2001 Audi allroad with 136,000 miles and I'm unsure of the transmission service history. The problem I'm currently having is with the torque converter. I hear most early 2000's models have this issue with a cracked seal on the torque converter. Anyway- I was told I could drive the car the way it is without many issues, only that I could expect worse gas mileage and for the transmission to occasionally pulsate when I accelerate. I just bought this car so it's been driving me crazy, I just want it to run the way its supposed to.

I spoke with my mechanic and he told me not to bother replacing the fluid or the torque converter because once the fluid is changed to something clean, the transmission gears could slip and fail. He suggested I just drive the car the way it is until the transmission fails... I'm not really happy with his solution to my problem.

Considering the mileage, is it possible for me to change the trans fluid and torque converter without worrying about having the transmission fail?

Where is the Thermostat located?

Car was running little hot, then ran hot hot for a few minutes and engine stopped, started one more time, enough to drive to a safe spot, still hot, stopped and won't start. Sounds weird when tries to start. Is this a timing problem or engine replacement?
