yeah, so lately my jetta has started acting weird.
there isnt much power until 3000 rpms, at that point the car gains speed like a champ without moving the gas pedal any further than it had been.
the last thing i did was an oil change, i think my oil might be too thick cause i used lucas oil additive, which was thick like molasses. (and its starting to get cold around here.)
do you think oil that's too thick would cause something like this?
thanks!

Re: running weird, no power till 3000 rpms? (ecto27)

i did, i originally wanted to fix a problem of running too rich, but the CTS didnt help anything, so i changed the O2 sensor. that helped alot, but the CTS, when plugged in, still made the car hesitate alot under load. (and yes, i did clear the computer by revving it through 3k 3 times)
anyway, first i bought one from the junkyard and nothing... then i bought one new.
nothing
i currently have it unplugged, but i will try driving it with it plugged in now. ill get back to you later.
thanks!
