Hey guys! I have my 2013 2.0T since november and about a month ago it started to jerk when accelerating. It cut the power and I hear some backfire going trough the exhaust almost like the car was suffocating. So my first thought was the air filter being dirty, I cleaned it and the problem was gone for about a week before coming back. This time, I stopped the car for about 10min and it was running fine after for about 25 miles or so. I replaced the spark plug but it wasn't that. Just wanted to have external opinion about it 馃ズ

check the boots on your spark coils for cracks,
spark arcing through a crack in a boot would cause this issue, I've had it happen to me.
