New guy here so be gentle...I have a 2001 Jetta 1.8T. I have been having issues with the car lurching and stalling right after starting and in 1st gear. The other day though, I had been driving on the highway, stopped to get gas, and when I started it again I put it in 1st it lurched and then died. Three questions; 1. How do you know if your DV is going bad? 2. If the DV is going bad can it damage the engine? 3. If its not the DV going bad any idea on what it could be? Sorry such a long post, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would say that it stalls when I let off the clutch, it doesn't usually stall when idling. It boosts great, doesn't feel jittery to me. I have also seen the posts here on starter coils going bad. Could that have something to do with my problems?
