Superbeatle? Jetta? Light on? Jetta I assume, if it is a 1.8L. If CEL is on get it scanned.
seek diag and est
What is your diagnostic skill level? Could be ignition or valve timing , or something as simple as faulty plug wires.Distributor cap/rotor , Etc. , Best bet is to find a shop with older techs that are familiar with VWs of that ERA.----It's only 3 years away from being considered an antique.
Me too.
Don't go there!!!...
Got to, you ain't but about 6 years behind me! Oh, i guess we are even now.
So keep your ol rubber check. We might as well use this space up with our own bs.
