Limp mode?

Car is a A4 93 firebird LT1 just bought it with 78k miles


Car feels like it has 0 power, engine revs up fine, feels like starting in high gear.

Small amount of smoke came from trans fluid dipstick, checked it and it seemed to have none visible.

if the trans fluid is low or empty would it cause the car to go into a limp mode?

You need to check for codes. On the 93 you can short the dlc pins to have check engine light flash the codes.

Go to following link to download the 93 service manual. It will have all codes listed. Manual will explain what makes each code set. What troubleshooting to do. And what happens when the code sets. My Files

Also there are codes that don't turn on the check engine light. So a scan is needed to know the code is there.
