Alright i was driving to school today, and i look down to find a CEL. As soon as i see the CEL, i feel the car buck very hard whenever the clutch is engaged, or i let off the gas. Any help with this problem would definately be appreciated.

Other Information:

car warmed up, and is at normal engine heat
1000-1400 idle, unstable and slighty jumpy
Oil Temp- 175, but i think this is normal
in between shifts, idle would drop very rapidly to ~800 rpms
0 degrees-outside temperature
1996 Audi A4 Quattro
Manual trans, 81968 miles..

thanks in advance, if any other information is needed i would be eager to give it.

also, i do not have access to a vag-com, so unfortunately i cannot do this myself.

Coil packs possibly? I think that would explain the jumpy.

just want to explain a little further, it was slighty jumpy... very small.. what was happening was every time i changed gears or stopped, the idle would vary between 1000-1400... thanks
