Question about 1994 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 1994 VW Jetta 2.0ltr manual trans. Recently put in new or slightly used transmisson to replace old one which went out. Car over all has been great to me. This is my second Jetta I have owned.
My car has been shaking or hesitating when I press the gas. It does it in just about every gear and I would say maybe more so when its warmed up. It also has been dying after Its warmed up and I stop at a store and start it again. Takes several attempts to get it to start.
We have researched this everywhere and found so many possible issues it may be. We so far have replaced the cap and master air flow censor. We also found a cracked pipe which we jimmy rigged to work until the part comes by mail.
Any help with this would be VERY APPRECIATED as we would like to avoid letting it sit in a shop. The problem seems to come and go so I have doubts a mechanic can diagnose unless its doing it then and there.
Thank you in advance!
There,s a sensor that can be installed under the gas pedal i had the same issue once gone ..I,m running revo stage 2 aftermaket turbo 3 inch down pipe back into a Magnaflow Catback exhaust system also a cold air intake ...you also might want to change your plug gap to 0.028 instead of the factory 0.032 this also might be the problem and it,s a quick fix the sensor pg performance google it

My car is doing the exact same too. Especially once I've been driving around awhile and its well warmed up. It happens when i'm going between 40 mph-55ish. I replaced my ignition switch and was told that the old one they took out was fine and was not the problem. What the mechanic did mention is that the shaking could possibly be from the starter going bad. It wouldn't hurt to have your starter checked.
