    Okay- my daughter isn't shuddering and sputtering, her TSI is. It seem to happen irregularly. She took it to the dealership which told her she should run premium gas in it and charged her $300 for a fuel injector cleaning (and $50 to put in a half quart of oil). Problem was gone for a couple...

    I'm at a loss of fixes now. Had problems for pushing a year now and can't get a permanent fix. Cleaned the throttle body, replaced the throttle body, intake was replaced and a few other minor things. Car will work for a few weeks to a few months after a fix and then the same problem occurs...

    Passat V6, 1999 I've been getting a P0160 code (bank 2 sensor 2) for the last 2 years. Finally got around to getting the replacement sensor - Bosch 13552. Not having the tools to do it, I had the local community college auto department change the sensor. Figured something as simple as this...

    My B6 Passat has nearly 92000 miles, last week it started to sputter on moderate to heavy acceleration and had a slight rough idle. It was throwing a misfire code on cylinder #4. Ordered a new coil pack ($23) and replaced spark plugs ($45 OEM type double platinum) and all was resolved. I...

    I drove my car ( 2003 V6 with 147,000 miles) the usual 76 miles to work with no problems. The timing belt, water pump and all tensioners was replaced at about 130,000 miles. I got in the car after work to go home but upon trying to start the car it sounded as if it backfired and I coud smell...

    Ok the problems with my car started about 6 months ago. It would start shaking occasionally for a minute or two, then I could usually accelerate through it and the shaking would stop. The check engine light would flash when the car was shaking. On advice from friends and due to some engine codes...

On cold (it's summer in Atlanta so after it's sat overnight) start, as far as I can tell, idle is normal not rough but there s a noticable sputtering sound coming from front end. Once the car has idled for a minute or...

    Hey all. Happy Good Friday. I have a new dilemma. I recently had my timing belt changed as well a motor mounts installed and had to re-weld my CAT converter back onto the engine. The car runs good and all but there are some instances where I am pressing the gas and it seems like the fuel is...

    My 1999-v6 was driving me crazy with an annoying stumble caused when gently accelerating from 1100rpm but would clear itself up, and not be present on a hard-acceleration. I bought this car 2 months ago and since then, I've replaced the TB, computer, battery, fuel filters, wires and plugs in...

    I have a 2002 passat 2.8 V6 AWD I am experiencing a slight drop in RPM from time to time, when I am parked in "drive" or in "reverse". If idling in "park" no problems. I also occasionally get a slight sputter when accelerating. Could this be transmission related, fuel system related or...

    I have a 2004 1.8T with 143k on it, and very little issues with the car. Just today it started rumbling and sputtering while it was idling in traffic. The issue seems to stop when I accelerate, or when I put it in neutral and press on the gas. Any thoughts on this? I had the timing belt...

    When starting my AEB 1998 FWD cold, it sputters and then dies. If I turn the key and hold it for a while it coughs after 10 seconds, coughs again and then starts. When restarting after going somewhere, it starts runs rough at about 500 rpm then soothes out to normal idle. I just took a road...

    Well I was just pulling on 95 when I noticed the car had a rough feel. I pulled over and the car was idling real rough. After checking to make sure things like oil were persent I was able to get it home but the car had very little power and I had to use down hill on the back roads to make it...

    I have a 2000 1.8 5-speed. History- Bought the car with a blown turbo- lots of smoke pouring out the tailpipe. Just replaced the turbo. Cleared all the codes. Problem- When cold, the car sputters and idles erratically (200-2000rpms) until the air pump turns off. Once the pump turns off, it...
