Dash Warning light was on for several months, after reading of possible trans overheating due to slippage of Torque converter, I had an Audi local technician remove the Torque Converter, have it rebuilt and put it in again, replace trans fluid, filter and gasket. Althought I think it no longer locks, It has been driving great for a year, I just found out the 4th gear is reporting a problem on the Dealer VAG. :(

Check engine light came on. Had vehicle checked code P0741 and 17125 bad torque converter. I have been given a total $4654.73 to fix this problem. WOW, imagine my horror! Why would such a repair cost so much money? Would it be cheaper to have a new transmission installed? I love my car.......but this repair is making me THINK, maybe an AUDI is not for me. Car is great.....repairs are COSTLY!!
OBD II code P0741.
The torque converter does lock up at times so I'm wondering if it could be a solenoid or switch and not the seals.
