The last "professional" guy to look at it said it was the motor mounts but this jolt/jerk/lunge never happened "at all" before I brought it into the shop. How...

    I have an 03 Passat with a 1.8T I4 with 103k miles. When I stop faster than normal it seems as if it is downshifting too slow, I will be almost stopped (less than 3mph or so) and ill get a small jerk and the engine will hesitate a little, then 5 seconds later its perfectly fine, I am unsure if...

    07 B6 Passat Wagon. 40KM. I have checked the rotors and the worst is .002 out of true. The brakes work fine. If you stop hard from 60MPH it is uneventful. However, if you are slowly stopping for a red light, lets say from 30MPH, there is a very slight pulsation (lurching) . You cannot feel it in...

    I am experiencing a smell of burnt oil when coming to a stop at redlights/stop signs, it is more noticible if it is a quick stop, would this be coming from the front of the motor??? I have changed the right (passenger) side valve cover a month ago but still no luck??? Any ideas??
