Shakes or Wobbles problem
2001 Volkswagen Jetta Front Wheel Drive Manual 65000 miles
It was somewhat cold when I started my car this morning, but not freezing. The car rattled and shaked while I backed out of the driveway. So, I stopped to inspect and let it run for a bit. The exhaust pipes were shaking. The rattling and pipe-shaking stopped after a short amount of time. I got back in and started to drive to work. The rattling continued intermittently as I drove to work. Also, there is a lag in acceleration after shifting and accelerating, ending in a small surge before normal acceleration. (This is the first time for the rattling, but not the first time I've noticed the acceleration lag.) I actually had to replace the transmission earlier this year (the last transmission was faulty, unfortunately ruined one month after the warranty expired); the replacement is used and is from a car of the same year, mileage, make and model.
have the same problem?
