Car jerks and shake when accelerating. Check Engine Light on...please help.
I have an 04 A4 with 85k miles on it. Never had a problem with it. Today, while driving home, car starts shaking vigorously when stepping on the gas, and check engine light appears. When in neutral, its fine. At idle, there is a few jerks. I pulled over and checked out the engine, but didnt see anything. Got back in and drove another 2 miles home slowly. Luckily I made it home.
Does anyone had a similar issue? I'm thinking its time for a tuneup. I'm at school and work all day so don't have time to do much research. Someone help with any advice on what it could be before I take it in the shop please!
Thanks in advance.
