SOURCE: bogging down when accellerating

Sorry to say, a battery and alternator would not affect your engine like that. You would either not start, or start and then just shut off, not bog down.

If your VW is a diesel, I'm sorry I don't have any answers for you. Diesels are very unique creatures that require very unique people to work on them.

If it’s a gas engine, start by changing your plugs (Bausch parts only please when possible), air filter PVC valve, spark plug wires. Also does your engine have a distributor and cap if so replace both along with the rotor. By the way, these are all basic tune up parts. If you don't know if they have been replaced, then they probably are all original parts. And luckily other than gapping your plugs nothing I have told you to do will require a degree or any experience. The people that sell you the plugs can gap them for you for free. Or if you choose you can get Bausch Platinum 2 Spark Plugs. These do not need to be gapped, and can be put in with no adjustments. Also put a can of BG44K in the tank, it will clean out everything where the fuel goes. Speaking of fuel, change your fuel filter. Check to see if your car has more than one fuel filter. Some cars have 2. A clogged fuel filter could cause a lot of the problems you are having also. Everything I told you to do first will also give you BETTER FUEL MILAGE.

If none of these things work, you need to take the car in for diagnostic work because most anything beyond this is probably going to be more than what you want to get into. If you’re not afraid get a Haines Manuel or a Chilton, and get greasy my friend.

The fuel pump relay will cause a stalling or no start condition. You are likely having mass airflow sensor, fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator issues.

Check the exhaust for obstructions. The catalitic converter may be plugged, this would cause a feeling as if you are pressing the brakes and gas at the same time

Try adding Seafoam fuel additive available at your local auto parts store. This will help remove moisture from your fuel system caused by using 87 octane gas (regular unleaded) always. It will also help to remove carbon build up in your exhaust system. Ask at your auto parts store for use instructions or check out Seafoam on youtube for video assitance.
