Question about Volkswagen Jetta
Have a 2002 VW Jetta 1.8Turbo (station wagon) that recently began "bucking and kicking" as i drive. At first i thought transmission (it began while going up a hill at 55 mph, felt almost like transmission slipping), BUT it continues to buck when idling at a full stop, and even in park after driving for a while. Also, it seems to need to "warm up" for a minute or two before the bucking stars. I drove it for about 2.5 miles this morning, and it didn't start bucking until close to the 2 mile mark.
I've tried dry gas, figuring it was moisture in the lines due to the weather, but so far that has not helped. Also been told it COULD be the spark plugs, but i'm not much of a car guy and i'm not exactly sure how to get at these (VW owners are probably aware that every compartment of the engine seems to come covered with a plastic puzzle box). What should i do!?!
My daughter just had a factory recall done on her jetta it was the emission coil. check this out.
