Engine Performance problem
2004 Volkswagen Touareg 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 76,000 miles
While filling up the car it vibrated and shut off. Later, while driving the car started to slightly vibrate. Soon the rpms and speed started to decline. Maintaining 4,000 rpms kept the car alive and anything below that it would die again. Once we started it back up again, when flooring the gas, the car barely sped up and thrusted forward every 6-7 seconds from then on. Was able to do about 60, 70 or 80 as long as 4,000 rpms were maintained. Once we drove over a pothole the problem ceased, only to return soon after. What do you think the issue is?
