Update: Took it to Autozone for a free code check and it came up as P0203 (#2 misfire) probably due to fouled spark plug or bad wires.

Thank you everybody for the advise & help!!!!



I was driving home and all of the sudden the car started hesitating and jerking and the engine lite was flikering on and off, then it stopped and the check engine light came on and stayed on. Any ideas?

It's a '99 1.8T w/tiptronic. It's got a Wett chip, K&N, & TT diverter.

and my wife just told me that when she got gas 2 days ago she filled it up with the lowest grade gas (WTF :mad: ) to save money.

Anyone with a Vag Com in or near Chicagoland/NW Indiana that can help?

Please, please, please :cry:

#2 cylinder is the one that misfires with a bad ICM. I doubt you have 1 bad plug,there are no plug wires.
Darn, I was hoping to get away with just spending $20. Oh well, another dub another dollar.

It does it intermittenly(SP?) as of now I still haven't put the new plugs in yet and it is not doing anything bad, the CEL even turned off now. Weird huh?! Maybe the ICM is going bad, but hasn't died yet.

I'll post what happens after the new plugs.
