Same thing is happening to me too...my3webers said:What happens if I don't fix the air leak?
I also had the problem with the tranny. Apparantly they all go in reverse gear. In NZ thats a $7k problem to fix if you go direct to the transmission guys. Whay more if you go to an Audi dealership. They say (the transmission guys) that the ZF gearbox that is used in all euro cars except the Merc has a dud reverse gear. Mine would not reverse unless it was dead flat. It was covered under warranty 2002 2.7t allroad and it goes great now. Minor airleak in the front to fix now.tpinco said:Bought that car in November of '05, have put about $5500 into it, and was informed today that the transmission is going...still haven't resolved the front wheel vibration (Audi says it's the tires, Discount Tire says it's Audi)...I may be finished with this fine German automobile...did the fron air shocks last week, that was a nice little $1700 job. The car ride completely different now, but there's so many parts in that suspension, it's a little crazy.
Anyone have a spare tranny sitting around ($4500)?
