Re: (norfolk87gti2)

My 92 Jetta GL is also doing that. I havent noticed anything in the radio, but it does buck when on the gas or cruising. I looked at the FAQ of this forum and that shed some light, but I still need to take a closer look at it.

Re: (gelbGTI2.0)

To me it sounds like a faulty ground or a failing coil... what have you checked/eliminated? There are a lot of things this could be, even up to motormounts. I would try first diagnosing your ignition components and then also checking all your engine grounds

Re: (jazzbass240)

im having a similar problem - bogging when i hit the accellerator.-once the engine is hot - it degraded to the point where it is undrivable once its hot.
plugs, wires new - TB cleaned - compression is fine. - im thinking its either the fuel pump or its sensor related?????
