Audi was driving fine when I put into reverse to park an it would only go back about 1 foot before it felt like something locked up. Put into 1st gear samething. I finally made it go forward to get it parked. Put into neutral and samething happen car will roll about a foot then feels like something locked up. Does this sound like transmission?
Less that 2 weeks after purchase, glove compartment door falls off ( it was glued on), key no longer worked on trunk , key or sensor ( I crawl in to open latch to open trunk) orange oil light came on, called used sales guys, they said it was OK added oil, OK for a while then RED Flashing Oil Light and Oil Pump Light Flashing. Pulled over, had towed...used care dealership changed pump. Oil light ( orange ) back on a few days later. They don't want to hear it... I have oil changed on time, try to figure out what's going on. Live in Florida...coolant level never changes stay same level but I swear after driving more than 50 miles over 60 mph hood feels way too hot and hear crackling noises.... Last month same thing but car feels different, rough, a little shakey.. it sounds oil light came on again. Again stopped, pulled over, had towed. Auto man charged me $500.00 said it seems fine, at first said he changed air filter and oil...did diagnostics, drove it, it's fine handed me a receipt not an itemized bill. Two days later orange oil light back on, followed by red beeping oil light and just for more fun since I brought it home from Repair Man's garage blowing billows of white smoke in the am when I start it or if sitting a long while. Went back to shop asked for itemized bill...changed story said no he didn't change air filter or oil...ran diagnostics very time consuming, wrote something under parts but can't read. So $500 later,$600 for the rent a car to get me back and forth to work while in shop...lights still coming on, billows of white smoke and engine still just doesn't sound right....but what do I know. White smoke cloud every morning....I bought this car in good faith the sellers so charming were being honest. Once of the lot all I was to them was just a nuisance. Repair Man probably thinks I'm rich because I drive an Audi albeit a bit older, where a white lab coat, look like a doctor but I'm a teacher for lab technicians , a teacher's salary,a single woman, a grandmother take care of my dad who is 92. ( Oh, Repair Man mentioned something about the reason car rental so high is because I rented a cute little Fiat. Wrong my car insurance didn't cover car insurance for the rental, my pay check did :-/ ) Tried trading car in at Car Max for something I can manage, still owe too much no deal. I don't drive far because the dashboard lights start twinkling....wanted to drive to Mid-West see my grandbabies but wouldn't dare. Last jaunt 600 miles to see son who was having surgery oil light comes on, sputtering loosing power on hills....What's wrong with this car and is there anyone honest out there who will charge me a reasonable for parts and labor , fix it or at least find out what is the problem!! I just paid $500 for zero...but worse $11,000.00 for a big headache in 2013. Any suggestions on what to do without throwing more money away...have a car I can drive more than 50 miles, faster then 50 miles without dashboard lighting up :-/ I can't even get rid of it STUCK!! Been thinking about one of those 60 cc scooters...grandma's scooter and leaving the headache in the driveway while I pay for it's uselessness!
it was in limp mode, only shifted manually then one day wont go into any gear. have 2 codes p0717 and po 722. speed sensor and transmission sensor. could it just be one of these sensors? I was told tcm is bad if it wont shift. I cant even figure out how to check the fluid. any ideas?
But when in drive it will run at one and a half rpm's when not even pushing on the gas pedal
My car used to change gear very quickly but i will like to know if a bad high pressure fuel pump can affect the transmission performance
I was told that's what's wrong with my car, brand-new battery . I tried to start it this morning and absolutely nothing but all the lights were on the radio was on and everything was good but it wouldn't even click wouldn't even turn over
How much does it cost to update airbags?
the first thing to go with my left low beam the HID I replaced it but it will does not work now the driving lights on the right side of the car won't come on I change the bulbs my turn signals work but the driving light itself will not come on either in the front or in the back
I would like to read other owners problems with there 2002 Audis, please........
The engine loses about 1/2 power for about 10 to 20 seconds then picks up again. This happens at irregular times, sometimes I can drive 100 to 150 klm before it happens sometimes 30 klm. I was told it was a faulty injector and had this replaced but I am still getting the problem.
far can I drive? n
