Wobble when you turn, slow, accelerate, at 10mph at 55mph! its just a wobble shimmying MESS!! Its MUCH MUCH worse when you press the breaks so i know its Break pads & Rotors. But my question is why when its just driving down the road what more can it be? its worse going down a hill... ive put it in 4 diffrernt shops even a volkswagen specialist they told me it was just shocks but couldnt gurntee me itd fix the wobble just for $2300 (no big deal..) I walked. no thanks. another said the motor mount. another just the rotors. at this point I think its just the WHOLE FRONT END :( it started in 2012 and I just paid it off last week and its WORSE THEN EVER almost seems not drivable or safe.. what could this be...
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Break/Downhill
How long have you had this problem? 3 Years
engine light on code reads transmission control module
Gears shift without a problem until engine temperature gets to 90. Then gear shifts become unpredictable and violent.
New, wires plugs coils and injectors, no vacuum leaks, all emissions hoses routed correctly, pulled plugs cleaned and swapped #3 cylinder with #1 and #6 with #4, cleared dtcs ran the same idled for 12 minutes shut off. waited 2 min. started ran bad for 27 seconds cleared up ran like brand new. idled for 1 hour great no dtcs. Off and on few times great. turned off, sat for 3 hours started up P0300, P0303, P0306, shakes terrible no power smells like gas and a load hissing like a vacuum line or air leak, but none found.
Driving down the freeway and the red steering wheel like came on flashed three times and beeped than turned off. Drove 30 mile home and nothing wrong. When to the store, light didn't come back on and made it there and back. Just started it again no light or anything. Does that mean I have a problem or a mistaken light. I was also at the time bumping with my subwoofers shaking the car very nicely with the bass...
What kind of transmission fluid it takes and how many quarts to put in
Have searched for reason for this code. Replaced EVAP cannister, purge valve, gas cap, oil cap, MAS, Cleaned throttle body, and replaced Valve Cover. (pending codes-P2279 Air intake system leak. P0171 System too lean bank 1 & P0507 Idle control system higher than expected. I cleaned throttle body. replaced oil fill cap, gas cap, Coils, etc... Last year I replaced Valve cover (bad PCV ) and code went away until I tightened a screw and broke it. Recently replaced valve cover again and down to P2279 only I think I may not have cleaned the breather hose or other things properly at the time and tripped the P2279 code again?
How can I check to see IF that was the problem- other than replacing again and making sure I clean out attached hoses correctly? What ever the cause of P2279 the Jetta has amazing response/performance. I don't feel anything wrong while driving it? Used propane,water & carb cleaner, to find vacuum but came up empty? Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.
Codes P0507, P0011, P2187, P2402 came up. Do these codes have any part or problem in common? We have changed oil, filter, spark plugs, checked the VVT solenoid. Any ideas where to sart.
Car runs, brakes, and handles just fine. This was a few hundred miles ago. At first it was only every third or so times I turned the car on, now it's every time.
Started making pinging sound from front passenger side of motor. Next day it died while n motion. It cranked once after that but just for seconds made a loud back firing noise died and hasn't cranked since.
I turn on all settings to run cold AC, and leave it on. Every once in a while it may blow cold air. Randomly. So i have it checked, all levels are correct. Mechanic says switch is broke, but is not sure if that's the whole problem. He said, it's blowing cold now, because I used screwdriver to switch it on. So I pay 200 to order and install switch, it still doesn't work. I'm on disability, so I have very limited funds. I'm afraid to give them any more money.

Is it ok to use the foam to clean out my turbo engine
So we recently put in a new tranny in a 95 golf amd the tranny came from a 93 jetta so we had to buy a clutch kit so the splines Matched... Now we dont have reverse amd the shifter feels like it doesnt want to stay in place.. Is it the linkage or something wrong with the clutch cable or the clutch itself or possibly the tranny??? I have a 2.0L engine with a 1.8L tranny amd clutch installed.. Does that matter?
Okay so last night all whitin a matter of an hour my car stalled 3 different times, three different ways and I have no idea why. First time was during acceleration the car bucked and jumped as if it wanted to go but couldn't, pulled over it stalled. Turned key off and started back up in seconds drove normal for about 20 minutes until I got to a stop light where it stalled again. Then again in about 15 minutes where it lost the ability to accelerate but kept a slow speed and then was driving normal again as if it worked it self out.... o and ABSOLULTY NO CODES ARE BEING THROWN!!!
