Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
I am having troubles with my jetta 97 2.0L (5spd manual). At idle, engine speed oscillates between 700 and 900 rpm and makes the car vibrate. After shifting from 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd, it sounds like the engine is missing firing and is very hesitant. Last week I got a P0304 cylinder 4 misfire code but the light went off after a few days. I changed the sparkplugs but it is still doing it. Thank you
Changed coil pack or wire.

Did you by chance check the resistance of your plug wires? They have a tendency of breaking down over a period of time and need replaced. The spark plugs would have told you what was wrong with the engine many times.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.

I'm no expert but it sounds as if you might have some moisture (water) contaminating your tranny fluid. I'd first try having it drained, flushed and refilled with fresh fluid. Preferably after it has been warmed to room temperature - -2 brrr.

Jetta TDI manual from 1998 was always going with 5 gear speed and with hudraulic clutch. First off all make shure that you don't have any air in this hydraulic. After you are shure that pushing pedal is effective you may think about changing your clutch set. Depending what engine do you have 1Z,ALH or AFN there're diferent clucthes and prices
