Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Jetta v6 lurching and almost stalling

I recently bought a 1997 VW Jetta GLX VR6. Occasionally, the car will lurch (hiccup), both in low and higher gears while driving city or highway. This only happens sporadically (about 2-3 times during a 30-40min drive).

However, today, it lurched and almost stalled as I was approaching an off-ramp. I drove into the mall, had a burger at Wendy's and drove home without incident (about 5 miles).

Any idea(s) what the problem is or needs to be looked at/repaired? Thx. in advance.

When something in the car's faulty and a sensor picks it up and tells the computer, the computer will cause the car to do exactly that. Could be anything, from a damaged air intake sensor to the breaks.

Have your car connected to a computer and let the computer do the talking for you.

Why does my 2000 vw passat v6 lurch when I take my foot off the accelerator and coast?


Hi. Please get the engine and gearbox mounts checked. This can cause a lurch type feel when they have excessive movement in them.

2000 VW Jetta VR6 My check engine light started flashing. My car was idleing very rough and missing. The parts store checked and the code showed misfire 1. We replaced the spark plugs. It runs a little...


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.
