  1. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Hello everyone, I just bought a 2001 vr6 manual 5 speed. For about the first month it's run perfectly, but just last week, any time I shift into 3rd, the entire car shuts off for a split second and then comes back on.

    So I have 95 Jetta, with a 2.0 and it has a pretty bad power loss in the lower RPM, it pulls once I get into the power band though. I checked the timing and it is fine, it has a newish cat and exhaust. Took the filter out of the airbox. It had a idle problem a while ago where it would drop into...

    I can jump my car and it starts but soon the voltage drops. Just replaced the alternator with a 90 amp one. The battery is not new but I was hoping it would be a short other than this battery. The radiator fan stays on sometimes which kills the battery. As soon as I turn on the lights the...

    I have a 2006 Jetta TDI and it just started studdering while accelerating. Fuel filter maybe? I have ordered one and will replace it asap. Any other thoughts would be helpful if this does not work. It has 86000 on it, FYI.
  7. VW Jetta MKIII 1991–1998
    My wife's '96 Jetta GL 2.0 has been having some problems lately. I think I've fixed part of the problem, but still having some power issues. At first, the car would stutter really bad. It wouldn't die, just seemed like it was gasping for air and wouldn't accelerate. Hooked it up to Vag-com...
