A lot of newer brands of tire are very soft, to help with traction, the softness will often times cause the tires to get a mild flat spot when sitting for a short period of time. Try putting the max amount of air that the sidewall says the tire can take. If the noise goes away it is the tires causing it, i would not replace them for this problem, just reset the tires to the correct pressure and ignore the noise.

If its one big shudder and not a bunch of them it sounds like a brake is sticking. if you get a bunch of small ones it may be a bad tire(belt shifted)

run fault codes and look for a fuel supply sensor/servo failure. The heat is affecting the fuel system and is causing a fuel vapour lock or is over pressuring the injectors.

You need to have the VW dealer or a well equipped VW savvy repair shop scan the body control module (or whatever VW calls it) and see what codes return, it is likely the problem, but hold on you can't jut pop one in it must be programmed for your car.

Fuel gage not working on a 1998 vw jetta


i believe he means how can he fix the fuel gauge not working problem not the running out of gas. since we already know why that happened (didnt know he was out of gas due to broken fuel gauge) theres only a few things it could be. the gauges power source or ground could be corroded or broken, the guage itself is broken or the sending unit is worn out or the wiring is faulty or broken to it.

1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.

1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.

Transmission won't shift fron 1st, 2nd or 3rd correctly!


Sorry to inform you that it sounds like your transmission needs servicing.
Check the fluid levels and replenish if level is down.
If after doing this,the car still wont shift properly or smoothly,,then you will have to take the car into a transmission mechanic.

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.
