View Full Version : Suggestion on what is wrong with my car.

09-18-2006, 02:15 PM
I have a 99 a4 1.8T with a tiptronic transmission. It has APR chip for 100k miles and K04 for the last 30k miles. The fifth gear starts to "slip", and now when I am in the fifth gear the engine revs but the car doesn't accelerate. Now, the fourth gear is showing the same problem.

What should I look into? Is it the tranny? valve? torque convertor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to dump tons of $$ just to have a shop pin point what is wrong before they start fixing it.

Thank you in advance,

Ive never come across this problem, but i believe ive read about it on hear. IIRC its your transmission going. Don't quote me though but its worth a shot to look into that.
