Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

2006 Jetta - push the accelerator, no rise in RMP

I have the car in several times at the dealer for the same issue. Engine lights are lit, the ECC, the engine and the traction control. The care simply looses power as we drive it, you push the accelerator and it barely moves the speedometer. Sometimes, once the car finally reaches a certain speed it manages to go smoother, but until then.. with the accelerator pushed to the floor, there is barely any force.

    Same problem with my 06 Jetta. Every now and then RPM will not exceed 3,000, usually in second or third gear.

The same thing happened to me. Last winter I had accidently touched the gas pedal when starting my Jetta diesel, flooding the engine, and it threw everything off. I managed to drive...with high rpms and little to no power... to the dealers and they hooked it up to the computer and reset everything. (some dash lights were on as well.) It took 3 minutes total, and it was fixed, and I have never had that problem since. I now know to never touch the gas pedal!
I do not know if this is your exact problem, but it may be worth checking into.

Most likely a wheel speed sensor starting to go bad, possably a wiring or Modual Issue.

You would have to pull the code with the light lit to tell you were to start the Diagnosis.

Hi VW fans a 2007 Jetta 2.5 liter with a


The problem that you describe is in no way normal. That six second lag that you describe is more than enough time to get you into a serious accident. I have experienced a similar issue on Mitsubishi automobiles. When the hold down on the throttle cable is holding the cable too tight (not enough slack in the cable) or if someone has adjusted the throttle cable to remove the slack causing it to be too tight it will cause a fast idle lag like you describe. On several fuel injected cars stick and automatic I have experienced the engine rev issue you describe. Every time it was fixed by setting the cable tension back too loose.
Another item, if the cable slack does not fix the problem, fuel injected cars are fitted with an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). They are located on or by the intake throttle valve. The price range for most is $30 to $100. If they malfunction they will raise the idle speed by letting too much air go around the throttle valve raising the engine speed even though the valve is closed. You can check if the throttle cable is too tight yourself. The IACV may have to be checked at the dealer. Only the dealer can tell you if the problem is covered under warranty.
As always check to make sure that there are no loose vacuum lines under the hood.
