    Hope everyone has been surviving the last year we'll! Few days ago, ended up buying a 2003 W8 Blue Spirit Pearl wagon with 160k, for a steal. I know it's infamous history and all the negative stigmas around them, but for the price I didn't mind buying a toy (another toy**) The car drove...

    I have a 2003 4Mo wagon with 30V 2.8L AT, about 205k miles. For over a year it has had a slight shudder in 1st gear at the beginning of acceleration under medium or greater throttle. It only does if from idle to maybe 2-3000 rpm. Light throttle, no shudder. Now I notice it a little in 2nd...

    Let me start by saying hello to all and thank you ahead of time for you input and wisdom. My Passat has 117000 and I am starting to have a shudder at highway speeds ( 60-75 mph ) when I need to downshift to pass .. however there is no issue reaching these speeds or harsh shifts if the...

    I have a MY07 2.0T Wagon. I have developed a shudder in the front right when speeds get about 50 mph and it gets worse the faster until about 65 when it lessens but doesn't go away. Accelerating lessens it, braking makes it go away. It is accompanied by a rattle at lower speeds. I thought it was...

    Driving down the road yesterday, I suddenly felt the car shudder on acceleration and the CEL start blinking. I pulled over, shut her down in some parking lot and drove back. When I came back a few hours later, the car started with no problem, a solid CEL (secondary air incorrect flow), and she...

    2014 TSI SE SPORT, has shuddering at very low speed when braking normally to a complete stop. The shudder happens around 2-3 mph just before the car comes to a complete stop. Happens when the car is cold or at normal operating temp., and is much more noticeable at times, randomly. Anyone else...

    Hey Guys. I hate to post this because there is such a plethora of knowledge on this site if you search. And I have searched, and read, and tried to figure this out on my own but I just can't seem to pinpoint it. So, for about a month I've had a CEL, and a shudder at idle. Pull the codes...

    When I drive alone, the car runs great. When I get a passenger or two in the car with me, I notice that when I accelerate it shudders a bit. The harder I press on the gas, the more shudder. Once I'm up to highway speed it seems good. Would you think maybe the torque converter or maybe cv...

    Hi, I know this has been mentioned a LOT, but I recently bought a 1.8t b5 Passat Manual in Adelaide Australia. It has been getting progressively worse overtime, or at least it seems to be getting worse. I bought the car and every now and again, only when completely stopped the car will idle at...

    I'm experiencing a shudder at the very end of braking. It usually doesn't happen when braking from higher speeds. More likely on a slow roll up to a stop sign or red light. It actually feel more like when gears aren't meshing and they finally find the right groove. Has anyone experienced...

    Hello everyone, this is my first big post (Yaaaay, I have a problem!). 2002 2.8L V6 GLX 4Motion Wagon, 189000 km. Have recently (within three months) replaced the alternator, timing belt and tensioner pulley, spark plugs, plug wires, and ignition coil, and PCV valve. Also had the valve...

    For some time now, when getting to 50-60mph, my car begins to shudder. I've spent the last few days trying to isolate why or under what circumstances, but have been getting mixed results. I believe it depends on steering angle first and foremost, followed by throttle application. If I'm...

    So in my 04 W8 I just replaced the clutch ( actually easier than most FWD's I've worked on, but still a crappy job to do without a lift.) the issue now is that while the clutch works perfectly, and there are no CEL's I've got a nasty shudder when I go over 20mph coming from the front passenger...

    2002 Passat v6 wagon 151 K looking to purchase: When coming to a stop I can feel the torque converter going on and off. This causes a shudder when coming to a stop just when braking, if I coast no shudder. The Rpm's will jump 300 Rpms as it downshifts engages then releases;I heard the Ecm...

    '98 AEB (1.8t, tiptronic) I'm having an odd sort of problem, I have an intermittent shudder, but it feels more like I'm running out of gas than anything else. I have replaced the ignition control module and that wasn't the problem. I'm starting to think that the fuel pump was going bad, but...

When I floor the car from both a stand still and cruising speed the car cuts in and out violently and makes some loud...

    2001 manual GLX. Front axles replaced after driving with bad CV boots for too long. Immediately after repair, car "shudders" at road speed if in gear and take foot off accelerator. Feels as tho source not engine operation, but drive train. No issue if out of gear and coasting, or when...

    My wife's 03 B5.5 with 130K has started to shudder really bad during all shifts, up or down. The trans has never been serviced since that is what we were advised upon original purchase. I've heard of valve body replacement and/or a service including a power flush. filter and screen cleaning...
