2007 Volkswagen Jetta Q&A

2007 Volkswagen Jetta Question: why is there a hard jerk while pulling off from stopping?

While pulling off from a light or a complete stop my car is doing like a kick in shift that is hard as if someone hit me in the back. When I stop it is as if it is a hard settle in. Also while driving it is idling up high. Please help. -
Answer 1
If your car has an automatic transmission, start by checking the fluid level. If it is even just a quart low it can cause that sudden jerk when trying to pull away from a stop. Read your owners book to see what type of fluid to use, or better yet stop by a trusted repair facility and ask them to see if it is low and if there are any leaks. -
