Just picked up a avant for the winter, its a 2.8 Quattro 5 speed 1998 model. Car drivers great and is awesome, to say the least this will not be my last avant!
However, there is a weird thing happening in first gear, it makes some winding mechanical noise (hard to explain), but kinda sounds like a loud winding belt noise or something like that (sometimes more, sometimes less). But the strange thing is that it ONLY makes that noise in FIRST GEAR, second, third fourth and fifth are all good, as is the reverse.
I have no idea what it is, but I had the car inspected before I bought it, there were no faults (except a tie rod end, that soon will be replaced).
Can my transmission be going out? has anyone had this problem? I searched the forum, but couldnt find a symptom like this yet. so Please fill me in if you have an idea about what could possibly be wrong with my new baby. :)
Thanks in advance!
