1986 Audi 4000 Transmission Service

Why is Your 1986 4000’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your 4000’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Audi 4000 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Audi 4000 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 4000 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1986 Audi 4000’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Audi's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Audi tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 4000 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 4000's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Audi 4000 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Audi. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
