Asked by Aug 08, 2016 at 12:06 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car started sputtering when trying to accelerate and wasnt seeming to get gas. replaced the plugs wires and coil pack. When was in low gear it would sputter so bad it would lose power. changed the fuel filter and checked the fuel pump (basic check) and will start sometimes but wont start others. always turns over just wont catch. sprayed ether into the throttle body it started and ran fora few mins then just cut off. the throttle body was cleaned out bc of an oil leak when the coil and plugs were replaced. ran fine for a couple months then bam same problems. PLEASE HELP!!!!
