I'm trying to just get second opinions as I can't seem to find anyone else with the same issue. I have a 98 Jetta manual with 250k miles. The story goes I was driving to work which is about an hour one way. The first 40 minutes are highway and no issues. I start some city driving and get on a road that's 55mph when the car starts sputtering as I maintain rpms. This progressively gets worse until I am almost into my work parking lot. I had to either let it coast or accelerate to keep it going. I was thinking it could be something clogged in the airflow hence working fine when accelerating. Once I get it into the parking lot, I pop the hood and about 15 seconds later it dies and won't restart. Had to tow it home. I checked the EGR and its dirty but fine. Tried starting it with the intake pretty much off so starting at the EGR and still wont start. I start listening for the solenoid and to my surprise it makes 3 clicks when power is applied. I even jumped it and it still does it. I'm going to clean the connection in a bit but wanted to see if anyone else has seen this. I may need a new one but a solenoid making 3 clicks in a row is a bit odd to me. Any other ideas?
