It could either be your transmission, so check the fluid in that. if that is fine than check the plug that goes into your block. I had the a similar problem with my jetta and that was all it was, a pretty quick and easy fix. also check all your spark plug wires

VW Jetta stalls when accelerating


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Hestitation almost to the point of stalling


I would focus on fuel delivery including fuel pressure. Any of the sensors would turn the check engine light on, but low fuel pressure would not. Fuel filter, problem with a line going to the tank, debris inside the tank blocking the pump, etc.

run a quality injector cleaner and see if there is improvement

2001 vw jetta gs :check engine light goes on and off


sounds like a faulty sensor tripping and reconnecting.. the next time the light comes on, take it to an advance auto store or an auto zone, they can read your codes for free... this will tell you what is being tripped, that way you know exactly what you need to get checked and/or fixed instead of a mechanic poking around trying to find everything thats NOT wrong. but if you are not expeiriencing any difficulty with the car, you should be fine. the check engine light actually means alot less than most people think. its usually a transmission or emissions sensor, or even as simple as leaving your gas cap off after filling and then driving for awhile.

2003 vw jetta wolfsburg bogs on early acceleration


Don't know if it applies to your diesel but most later gas engined vehicles have a 'cold start' valve that supplies additional fuel to the fuel/air mix along with boosting the idle speed until some warming of the engine is sensed.
