    Alright so my 02 glx 2.0 5 speed has around 134 on it. I replaced the water pump along with the timing belt and serpentine belt not too long ago. I've had a problem that only occurs every now and then. When I accelerate it jerks forwards and when I let my foot off the peddle it jerks hard. I...

    This morning I had already been driving for 20 minutes or so when suddenly my tranny (5 speed) began make very loud grinding and clunking noises when I was decelerating to a light. It continued to do this for the rest of my drive home (7KM/4MI). It didn't matter if I was in neutral, clutch in...

    Hey guys. New to the forum and wanted to see if anyone has had this problem and can give me a better idea of what it may be. After my car has driven a few miles, I get a whine coming from the drivers side of the engine that only goes away when I accelerate. It sounds like a cat is duct taped to...

    My 2001.5 1.8T AWM stickshift with 94K has started to buck when I coast in gear onto an off ramp on the highway. Goes away when I pop it in neutral. Most apparent at speeds between 60 and 40 mph, and a change-down to 4th increases the frequency of the bucks. Not noticeable in around-town...

Its frequency increases with speed and is kind of like a clunking or sounds like something rubbing each wheel rotation. I checked out my...

    Let me know if I should consolidate my threads. I am experiencing a bad lurch when decelerating in my B5 Passat 4 motion V6. Essentially, whenever the motor is slowing the car down it gets very jerky and lurchy. Using Tiptronic, it is exagerated. If i am going 25mph in 4th gear, and downshift...

    In my 1999 1.8t Auto/Tip, when accelerating then letting off the gas, I feel a “Clunk”. Also when cruising at highway speeds (not accelerating, just maintaining speed), then just letting off the gas it “Clunks”. And also when accelerating from a stop it “Clunks”. I have a feeling it is the...

    Hi all, I don't know if this is normal but my brakes whistle (either front or rear , not sure ) when decelerating to a stop ? I have gotten my rear rotors changed along with the pads at 15 000kms because they were defective and pulsating. I beleive this started happening soon after the change...
