I have an 02 jetta with a vr6 with 17000 miles on it. When i start the car sometimes it stalls
and almost all the time it hesitates until i give it gas.
What is wrong with it?
thanks

It is probably emissions related. You need to scan the DTC memory.

Dang, my VR6 has been excellent. Hang in there. The VR6 has an excellent history of reliability http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Also ask for a loaner. Hey wait your still under warranty. You will be fine.
This too will pass as my mom says http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Damn quote button is messed up again.

If it is just upon start-up, you might want to look into replacing your coolant sensor with the green-top coolant sensor. I have heard that this remedies some of the cold-start issues. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
