Default Hesitating During Acceleration

It looks like I can't avoid taking the TT to the shop. First I noticed I'm losing boost (3 psi) and now I am getting a hiccup/hesitation while accelerating. I was noticing a little hesitation at the top of the2nd gear. Now it is worst but at the top end of the 3rd gear. Anyone have a similiar problem with accelerating? What were your solutions?

I'm starting to get paranoid after seeing pictures of timing belts missing teeth. I'm at 44500 miles and getting to the point where I want to order a timing belt kit. Can this problem be associated with something like that?

I will be trying out my third shop in 4 months - http://uspmotorsports.com/index.php. HopefullyI can find one that isn't just trying to sell me. I would like to see someone get excited about working on my car. Someone that knows the intricacies of this model and has vison of how to make it perform.

Sounds likes a bad MAF and/or failing coilpacks. Would also check your sparkplugs for fowling and proper gap.

I dont know if you have read that link i posted in your other thread or not buti would start there and get a new o-ring of the turbo outlet pipe. If it still happens it might be a died n75 (yes they have been known to die). IF you know another 1.8t'er in the area ask to borrow theirs and see it if cures the problem. Both simple things to try. Also check your vaccum hoses and for boost leaks.

Hey man,

You can go to USP but they will charge u a s#$t load of money..... they quoted me 950.00 to do the timing belt.... autodreams only 620.00. And you better like APR if you go to usp becuase thats ALL they will work on or sell you. Im getting my big turbo done by gregg at autodreams.

I just wanted to make it clear once again that a shop telling you to get the waterpump done at the same time as the timing belt is not"just tryingto sell you" unneeded parts.I remember youcomplaining before about them telling youshould pay to have it done as well.I would honestly be wary of a shop that did not tell me to do the waterpump at the same time, especially with the plastic impellars that they come stock with.
