What Does Your Audi 200 Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1989 Audi 200 transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Audi 200 transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your 200’s not even driveable.

1989 Audi 200 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Audi 200? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 200 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 200's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Audi 200 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Audi's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
