It’s a loaded 2001 AR has only 80k miles, new timing belt kit, looks good and runs great. But I can’t convince myself to invest in it. What do you think…sell “as is” for ???, sell parts, or invest? I’m leaning toward getting rid of it since I just don’t trust that another big issue isn’t just down the road. Opinions?
You've described what a vag reading said, but without the specific codes...torque converter clutch, other?
You did not describe the car's symptoms(?)...if the TCC was going on and off, you have to be unconscious not to feel it. You'd also have to be unconscious not to feel the loss of the TCC lock-up function...not to mention losing even more mpg's on a car with already crap gas mileage.
Again, what are your codes #'s ?
