    Thread: 2010 gulf tdi wagon studder @ 1800-2000Rpm

      Trying to figure out what is going on with my friends car. It is a 2010 Gulf TDI manual transmission with the emissions fix installed. He has always had this symptom that intermittently occurs between 1800-2000RPM at moderate loads. Doesn't matter wether it is at highway speeds or slowly driving around town. There are no stored DTC's. I haven't observed anything that stands out when the stuttering is happening and watching live data. Has anyone found a permanent repair for this? The local dealership is only good at one thing.. taking money with no sign of action.

      Thanks in advance.

      History on fuel filter?
      And air filter?

      Does the car
      Have the original dual mass flywheel?

      I have seen a factory 2010 Tdi flywheel spin into two pieces.
      They are very poor quality.

      Hi. This sounds exactly like what my wife’s 2014 TDI sportwagen was doing. She has a dsg but it doesn’t really matter imo. It was a heck of a journey (almost 8weeks at the dealer) and over $8K paid in full by VW, we figures the problem. A BAD ECM. Take a look at my post. It will hopefully save your friend a lot of $...
