Motor movement

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 09:28 AM about the 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Question type: General

I just bought a 2004 VW Turbo. The motor moves
when shifting into gear, the guy says that's normal,
I only have a 60 day warranty.  I am just worried I
am going to get screwed over. Is this normal????

1 Answer


You will get some movement but not a lot, I suggest you have another tech take a look at it, it's really hard too say if the movement is normal or excessive without personally looking at it. The best thing I can say is if you can feel the engine actually move when shifting then it would be excessive.
