Occasionally while accelerating the car will stall out but not die. The car doesn't die, it will coast and then you can accelerate Again after a bit. Seems to lose compression. Mostly happens when car is under 1/4 tank of gas, but recently does it on any level of gas.
My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
You’re probably not actually loosing compression. But you might be loosing fuel pressure. If the pump is not delivering enough fuel you may be able to run and idle, but the power will drop off when you try to accelerate. Don’t run out and replace the pump yet, a fuel pressure test is what is really in order. You didn’t mention whether there was a check engine light on or not, but I’m willing to bet that there are one or more trouble codes stored on you car that will help point to the problem. If you want to get someone to check this out for you, contact Your Mechanic, they will send a technician to your home or office to check out your Jetta and let you know what it will take to fix it.
