I'd appreciate anybody's advice. My 1995 GTI "hesitates" under acceleration, especially between 1500 - 2500 rpm. I have cleaned out the throttle housing, replaced the coil & plugs, replaced the fuel filter and had the factory settings restored by a VW dealership. Unfortunately, their involvement cost me a fortune and did nothing more than reveal the fact that their ability to troubleshoot ends at the readout from the diagnostic computer. Any ideas ?

Re: HELP - MK3 GTI miss-fire (Ryan Hammond)

My Jetta 2.0 is doing the exact same thing, exept since I went so long without finding a succesful cure mine will no longer turn over.
I had put on plugs wires Blaster 2 coil. After it died it was diagnosed with a bad coil and ECM/ECU. I am puting a used ECM/ECU and a new coil on it tonight. Either way I will let you know the success or failure. If it is your ECM try to find a used one, the stealership wanted $1200 for a new one.
