Ok, I have a Jetta GL 2.0 (1997) with about 105K miles. Recently the head gasket started to leak so I pulled the head and had it completely rebuilt, then replaced the head gasket and put it all back together. The car cranked up and ran GREAT - but - There is a little bit of a stutter at low rpms when you first take off or shift gears (it is a 5 Speed) and it feels just a little sluggish. It is also getting 25% to 30% less MPG than before. The plugs are new and correctly gapped, the Rotor button is new, Distributor cap is new, Timing is set correctly - and Triple checked. Any one have an idea of what to look for or where to start with trouble shooting?

thanks!

I would say something has not been put back correctley I would recheck every thing and make sure the cam belt is correctly fitted.
