hey so i need some advice, tips, help, etc.. *2005.5 2.5L jetta, auto*
so i was driving home from work tonight, i was in tiptronic, then switched it back to normal auto. i was coming to a light and needed to stop as i did i feel my car jerking very heavily at idle, check engine light flashing on and off on and off continuously, and a very very very low deep bad grumble. i could accelerate and drive the car but it had a very bad, almost like an older motorcycle at idle. i was on my road to go home so i wanted to try and make it home before not being able to move. it was like this for a good 3 mins or so.. still trying to drive home, then the light just stopped and sounded normal. any ideas what this could be, it scared me ****less, i thought maybe the hose on the intake or something came off but everything looks normal.
i called a friend and he said when i got hom let it sit, try starting it and take it around the block and see if its ok... i did that and it seemed fine, sped up fast and no issues, just find it weird and wanna know what it could be.
any ideas, thoughts, input, anything would be great. TIA!
