ENGINE SHAKING ADVICE

2003 Volkswagen Polo • 35,000 miles

Hello, I have a vw polo 1.4, 5 door 2003 model. It shakes quite hard for a minute or so after I start it and then stops.

Please advise on what I should do as I am giving my car for service tomorrow?

Have a compression test done. Have the plugs checked, injectors checked and have it checked for vacuum leaks.

Tell them the symptoms, no more: "shakes quite hard for a minute or so after I
start it and then stops"

If you tell them to check a bunch of other stuff, it will add $ to your service / inspection.

You might want to let them keep the vehicle over night, so that they can
experience the issue the next moring. Since it is fine after a minute of starting the engine.
