Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Audi A4 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

Questions About 1998 Audi A4’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Audi's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Audi A4? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 A4 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my A4's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Audi A4 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Audi, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
