Hello, I'm Brandon - VW tech.

It could be a misfire code. However we will need to properly diagnose it.

These vehicle has a computer that store the trouble code. First you will need to scan the vehicle with an OBD2 scanner.

You could buy the scanner at the autozone store for about $80 or they could help you scan it.

Once you retrieve the code , then I can help you define the problem.

Please rate me positive.
