Asked by Sep 14, 2015 at 10:44 AM about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL 1.8T Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Second time the check engine light has come on. Repaired (or thought it was) about 3 months ago, but getting the same error code P0011. (12 the last time). Is this a timing problem and how much will it cost to repair. It jerks when first started but smooths out when driving. Occasionally has jerked even after driving for a half hour or more.
