Power to road cuts out intermittently
I am having problems with my 2003 VW 1.8T Jetta (manual trans). I will be driving
usually on the expressway not accelerating just keeping speed and all of a sudden I
will lose power to the tires, and a few seconds later the power to the tires will just
come back. Today I had the problem but lost power for about 10 seconds. The engine
does not turn off and seems to be functioning fine. I shift into other gears and only get
power whenever it decides to kick in. Any ideas on what the problem could be?
Thanks.

RE: Power to road cuts out intermittently
You need to give us a bit more to go on here. Your description is just too vague to piece this all together.

Suggestions for more info would include total miles on the car, weather conditions, last tune up, what you do to bring on the problem or make it go away, how much fuel is in the tank, what happens if you step on the gas, down shift, etc.
