86 5kCSQ jerks when deacclerated
Subject: 1986 5kCS Q, 180k miles, 5-speed manaul tranny
Hello everybody again,
First of all, thanks to all who responded to my earlier
email about the location of coolant temperature sensor,
and the source to get it.
Since I am a new owner of a used audi, there are still
quite a few questions. I just ordered the factory manual
and hope not to bother you guys so much. One question
which I think I won't be able to find the answer even in
the service manual, will try my luck here.
Summary of the problem would be
"Is hard engine braking normal to this car"
Explanation of the Problem will be like;
I am not sure if it is a characteristic of the beast or
if there is something wrong. While in stop and go traffic
(california), let's say I am in in a low gear, and I just
took my foot off the gas pedal, without pressing the clutch,
the car has a sudden jerk. The jerk is so bad that I get
nervous that someone might hit me from behind ( bumper to
bumper traffic). I have been driving stick shift for last
20 or so years, and don't think that I have to press clutch
everytime I take my foot off the gas pedal. The lower the
gear the harder the jerk is.
Thanks in advance,
Fremont, CA (USA)
