Why doesn't my car have a kick?

Asked by Jun 18, 2017 at 07:45 PM about the 2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I recently got my 2006 Passat Volkswagen out of the shop. I had my oil
pump and timing belt changed. Now when I drive it, it doesn't take off like it
usually did. If I'm sitting at a red light and it turns green, it takes a good 20
seconds to gradually pick up speed. As I'm driving it, it does stutter a bit as
if I'm switching gears. Sometimes it goes faster and sometimes it struggles
to pick up speed. Any ideas? :(

Timing might be off, have the shop recheck their work.
