Well a couple months ago the car has been very slow when I am at a stop sign and it's my turn to go, I press the gas it accelerates super slow that I even press all the gas but it doesn't help the acceleration is slow. I had this once fixed at the mechanic he had it repair with a sensor but it's not working again. I've been repairing it a couple times now but it starts again with the problem so I just leave it like that and deal with it because I don't want to be wasting money on the issue of it will happen again. But I'm so tired I want this problem with my 2000 jetta 2.0 fixed permanently.
Check engine light came on - read the code and it said it was the mass airflow sensor so I replaced the part. Overall it was a pretty easy part to replace.
