I am in a position to inherit what I think is a good car, a 1998 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro. The Pros, car looks great, the CONS, pissing oil as it runs, bottom of engine is coated in oil, and the biggie, shifting into D or R, car does not move.... The car was taken to a local mechanic, and told the current owner, tranny is bad, and its 4K to fix it. The book value on the car is about that.... Car has 200k miles by the way, and the maintenance was less than adequate. I am looking for a project for the summer and think this might be a good one. I don't think the tranny is done, maybe a bad Torque Convertor, but no way 4K worth of repairs. What are the experts on the forums thoughts on this ride? Should i accept the car or not. I am farely mechanical, and can read a manual, not afraid to ask questions, and google anything. I am really hoping it is something very simple, and the mechanic was trying to pull a fast one....... thoughts please!!
