    Hello everyone
    i have 2002 Jetta TDI ,automatic 365k
    I drove it for the last 100.000 km
    i noticed for a while a weird shudder or tremble .

    So when cruising at constant speed , every 10 sec there is like a short shudder /tremble for about 1 sec .
    no funny noises , is like a slippage , there is an rpm movement too , short but visible .

    I guess at this age and mileage the transmission could see the end but i was wondering if could be something else too.

    Thanks

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing.

    Could be the clutch/flywheel...

    Nevermind, just noticed that you said it was an automatic... clutch/flywheel is moreso a manual transmish thing...
