Audi A4 Quattro Check Engine Light Due to Faulty Torque Converter

(28 reports)

A problem with the torque converter can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

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!! -
Check engine light came on. Seems to be driving fine, no slippage or hesitation, but a minor vibration-like feel in pedal during acceleration. Dealer wants $4100 to fix the torque converter, local shop wants $2700 to install a used (85k miles) transmission. Audi forums report this as a common problem, but a lot of people seem to continue to drive the car without issue (other than the light). Not sure what to do. -
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. -
Vehicle started slipping in higher gears on inclines at speeds between 60-80. Engine light came on...now I am so bummed out when I see potential cost to repair. -
Purchased Audi 2001 Quattro. check engine light came on the way home. Also have check engine light on for catalytic converter. Dealer wants 4000 to replace torque converter. OUCH!!! -
in dispute with audi for $1,000 repair -
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. :( -
