    2000 jetta TDI shudder at slow idle speed

    the engine runs perfect at all conditions except when you are stopping. car out of gear coming to a stop the engine will start to jerk somewhat almost like a misfire. you come to a complete stop and it goes away. at idle you can let the car come to a slow roll and it will start doing this again...

    01 jetta ALH swap to AHU

    is this a straight forward swap or is it worth it. I have a 01 jetta that has a totaled engine but can get a AHU from a 98 jetta. if this will work what conflicts will I be running in to. I would think I would need to use my stock ecu since it has the immobilizer. but I believe the harness is...

    engine bucking low rpm and throttle

    cleaned the MAF no change. it looked real clean. you can hold it steady at 1500 rpm out of gear and it is smooth. it seems like the tps has a bad spot in it near 1/8 throttle. I am going to try and ohm it out with a analog meter and see if it has a clean sweep from closed to wide open

    engine bucking low rpm and throttle

    I posted this in the tdi 101 but got no chimes on it. this is a 91 corrado that has a 98 jetta tdi full swap. engine is running great getting 44 to 45 mpg. plenty of power also. I had the timing checked on the vag and it is good. no engine codes. at light throttle at 1500 to 1800 the car will...

    engine bucking low rpm and low throttle

    the bucking has changed to a quick skip now. and it is still at the same light throttle and around 1500 rpm. say this as fast as you can and that is how it skips now (tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat ) that's funny. other than that the corrado is still doing great as our daily driver.

I did delete the EGR it is caped off at intake and exhaust. could deleting EGR have an effect on this other...

    broken valve

    well put and I will accept it. now the great news. it was done by a friend that works at the vw dealer. I have the tools and knowhow to perform this but I am working out of town and did not have the time. so I thought I better get this changed before it breaks because it had some visible cracks...

    broken valve

    the timing belt was not loose or out of time. I feel it was done correctly. it had all new parts and ran perfect. if the belt was still tight and was still in time how could the experience of the mechanic be at fault. can someone answer this. if the engine was out of time why would it pick only...

    broken valve
