2008 Fri 2.0t....

2008 Fri 2.0t. Thrown 2 codes p000a and p0303. But only gives me sluggish respond between 2300 and 3000 rpm then smooth out

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

Yes... has thrown both codes together

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 VW?

Gti with the sag trans

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GTI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Thought it was a slipping tran... so had a tran service done at dealership...nothing else

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No.... just some help figuring it out weather i can do it or need to go to mechanic
