My car: 1985 Audi 5000 S non turbo automatic transmission 2.2 Lt.
The transmission won't engage into the next stage till the car has traveled a mile or so.
For example. At 35 mph, the rpms read 2800. After the car has 'warmed up'. Gone a mile or so. It functions properly. 35 mph at 2200 rpms.
This ONLY occurs upon the initial start up. After that, it's smooth transitioning as long as I don't let the car sit and cool down.
A year ago, it USED to take roughly 3 miles for this engaging process to kick in. So it's getting better ( I hope)
I've changed the screen, filter, gasket and tranny fluid to the proper level.
Previous owner stated that it had a 'new' transmission put in. I've lost contact with the last owner so. What do you think is going on here?
Thanks much, Will
