I'm having a problem every so often that my Jetta's acceleration responds very slowly. I have had the car for a year, and it has 118,000 mi. on it. I've put on about 10,000 of those. I have not had this problem much before except a month and a half ago when I had to replace the Mass Airflow Sensor. The engine made a very loud rumbling noise at the time, which has not made since and is not making now. Right now it's just ocassional sluggish acceleration. I can make it accelerate faster by really punching the gas, but that makes the car shift really hard and the tachometer really jump. It has been about 0 degrees F lately (it's January in Minnesota), but I've started it up at -20 F without problems before.
Any suggestions on the sluggish acceleration?

my engine light kepp coming on. i had everything change. even the transmiion. wht could i do

This just began last week, I don't know why. Or maybe it's been a couple of months because initially my left tail light went out and has been replaced a few times without any success. I had the fuses checked- no blown fuses. Then, last week the door ajar indicator kept coming on and off along with the interior lights. I have no idea what to do about it but I'm hoping it's not going to cost me too much since I'm still paying on the thing. Help, please?

How much will it be to replace the transmission itself? And should I bring it to a shop or a dealer for this kind of work? Who should you recommend for the job, please give me a list of non-rip-offs shops around my city? I would greatly appreciate it. Also when I bring the car to Jiffy-lube, they mentioned I might need to have the oil pan gasket replaced. Because it's beginning to leak oil, but I don't see any oil leak in the driveway?

How much should it cost to rebuild a transmission
