My '89 Golf, 1.8 8v with Digi Injection, shutters/bucks, just after the the throttle is opening...in gear, during acceleration. The only way I can drive it is by being real, real easy, appling the peddle, to gain RPM's. To try to rev up for a fast start, or just wide open throttle, it runs real rough. I've got a new air filter on. Thanks!

Re: 1.8 Digi shudders/bucks during throttling (stevenf12801)

sounds like youve got an air/vacuum leak,
check the rubber tubing that goes from the air box to the intake, it likes to rip on the underside where u cant see it.

I checked that flex air tube, it's ok. I replaced all questionable vac lines, the problems still there. Thanks for the reply!
