Sad this is my first post on here... On my way home from work today GTI wanted to play, and I took a hard pull from 4th to 5th. When I pulled off the gas, car started making a puttering noise. I think the noise is turbo related b/c its coming from the top of engine (I think). My second guess would be cylinder misfire, but I don't hear flutter/putter at idle only happens when first hit gas. Power is definitely reduced as well. I bought the car brand new right before Christmas, and it has been a gem until she broke my heart today. I have 3500 miles on it already, but other than hard pulls on the highway, I've babied it. I already have Subaru Roadside scheduled to pick it up first thing Monday, but I hate doing that though, so I'm wondering if there are any ideas you all might have as to what the problem might be. Jiggle a wire perhaps? Please? Blow turbo? Faulty spark plug? Can't believe this already happening Someone help thanks!
