    Frankly, this has me--and some mechanics I took it to--stumped. Sometimes, when I first turn on the car (2000 1.8T) and stay below 2000rom, it starts to have an unstable idle.

    Car runs fine at highway speeds. At an intersection stop the motor will occassionally shudder as though a cylinder didn't fire. The whole drivetrain will shake momentarially and I feel it in the seat. Kinda like a hic-up. My thought is to go after the coilpacks. Any recommendations? Thanks...
