VAG-COM indicating 17125 - Torque Converter Clutch: Stuck OFF/ No power being transferred P0741 for my 2000 Audi A6 2.7T (85000 miles), under no warrenty. Changed transmission oil, air filter but still light is on. My mechanic is asking me to sell rather fix the car. Please tell me how much it cost, is it fixable? can I drive the car with this condition.
And selling the car (assuming you still like it and want to keep 'er) search around for a wrecked Audi your model and year, and look into buying the tranny. You should get a good deal, and most often the wreck is the front end and was totaled because the airbags deployed. So assuming there is nothing wrong with tranny, this is a good option. Alot of times, when your tranny is opened and reapired, it never goes back together the way the Audi God's intended. And you will have nothing but probs down the road, anyone else have an opinion on this? You could also go steal another C5 and strip it for parts (but that's illegal and unethical, but tempting, but you might be doing someone a favor, now they can buy that new Q7 they want).

No need to open the tranny. This is simple torque converter replacment.
I would not swap my known good trans for a junkyard unit to avoid a torque converter swap. Besides, there can't be more than a few hundred dollars difference between the cost a new TC and a used trans with used TC.
