VW PASSAT won’t rev slowly over 1200rpm

Asked by Mrmeseekshelp May 27, 2020 at 01:59 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GLS 1.8T Turbo Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 99 Passat 1.8l turbo wagon. I bought it last
year and am just now getting to it And I’m stumped.  
So it starts and drives. But in gear it won’t go over
1200rpm. When it does it jerks and the rpms drop
down to 400rpm and almost dies. Is I rev it slowly
out of gear it stops at 1600 and no power until it
drops back to 400rpm again. I replaced the mass
airflow and the tps but no help. I don’t want to sell it
or scrap it. Thoughts ?
