My audi has 141000 miles. The engine light came on and scanned as torque converter failure. That was 30K miles ago and two trips out west, including a tour of the mountains. The car runs and shifts flawlessly. I have a hard time believing it needs this repair. I clear the code and it returns within 20 miles or so....could the sensor be bad? Why does it continue to run and shift so well? I would love to get the light to stay off with out spending $6K on a trans and torque R&R it doesn't not seem to need. Am I just blessed to be driving it still? Or could this be a false code from a bad sensor?
Thanks for your help.

2003 Audi A6 quattro. I was driving last night, went to pull out of the parking lot and car started making a grinding sound as if i was dragging something under the car, and then the car stopped moving and will no longer move. I looked and nothing is dragging. But like i said the car wont move, and it doesnt make the sound in park.. but as soon as i put it in drive it makes the noise again.
The gauges for the gas, speedometer, and the calculated miles left to drive are going crazy, back and forth.
i couldnt find any reference in the fuses layout to the electric fan, i didnt find any relay box, would anybody help me out find and identify those parts is very important thanks a lot
I have to find out the reason of the temperature raises on my car when i wait on slow traffic rides y need help to check my options before go to the dealer, i really need help with this thanks
i saw the temperature gauge showing 1 notch before the H mark in a simple slow traffic for three blocks i stop the car and opened the hood, the fan did not work, the fan after i usually park the car begins to runs after a few seconds, in this case the fan simply dosent work
When i turn on the car the air conditioner runs automatically, then the air became warmer, and the engine fan stops working, and a smell like burned oil came from the engine, there is no visible oil leak, but its smell pretty intense for at least 30 seconds then stops
but temp is normal on the dash
First my my reservoir cracked then while idling it had water running all over the place ,,I fixed one of the problems and had a few hoses and clamps replaced but it won't stop running hot . It starts getting hot after only 15 mins while driving then when i pull it over to cool it goes to the normal but then the i have to check the reservoir the coolant goes down and then the pressure is so built up it pushes the coolant back up to the I really need help with this
