Probably the IAC which control the idle but usually you will see some erratic idling as well. Pretty sure something to do with the control of idle and fuel. Maybe you need to clean throttle body and raise idle some might help. Have IAC checked.

It's sludge. Drop the pan drain the oil, clean the screen and the tube, flush the engine and use only fully synthetic oil. This is a hundreds of dollar repair but if you drive it as it is even for ten miles you'll need a new engine. This was an oversight by VW, recommending inadequate oil and it was covered under warranty but yours is out of warranty. It's been a month so you've probably already discovered all this. I can't believe no one in fixya told you right.

nothing to do with the plugs
it is a problem in the transmission from servo/ solenoid not down shifting the ratios as you skow down
run the fault codes and look for TR sensor , TCM problem or pressure sensor problem
nothing wrong with the transmission but if you have not a transmission oil chnage done in the last 60,000 klms , that woukd be a good idea as dorty oil will hunder reatio changes
have it checked by an accredited professional transmission shop

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.
