I have a Jetta GLi and I have had nothing but problems with it now the major problem is: Shoots flames out when it back fires, runs fine untill it surges and jerks around and my tach goes crazy. I have replaced hall sender and the distributer cap looks ok plugs are good along with wires. Replaced fuel relay fuel filter fuel and the F distributer is good. Could it be the fuel pump or the main Ecu because for some reason I have raw fuel dumping into my exhaust. PLEASE HELP

see if your spark plug wires are in there correct place.

Sounds like your firing order may be goofed up, which would cause you to dump fuel into your exhaust.
