Car: 1998 Manual 2.0L VW Jetta *Wolfsburg Edition*

When trying to accelerate (usually in 3rd and 4th gears) the car makes a "clunking" noise and has trouble accelerating. It seems as if every time it "clunks" the gears in the transmission are momentarily un-engaged. In addition to the noise there is a distinct jerking feeling. This happens only on occasion and usually after a rainstorm (however I am unsure if there is any correlation b/w rain and the issue). Earlier today, after washing my car, I drove approximately 5 miles and the issue occurred worse than it ever has.

Any comments, advice, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
