So the SprintV motor in my VBB has just developed a strange issue.
Under hard acceleration, and mostly in 3rd or especially 4th gear, the engine will surge and feel almost like it's jumping out of gear, but then jump back in, but without the full-on pucker-inducing (and possibly case cracking) slam. I can feel a little bit of pull on the shifter when this happens. I don't think it's ever done it in 1st or 2nd gear, but I don't spend a lot of time in those, so maybe I just haven't experienced it there.
It started doing it a couple days ago and did it consistently starting about a mile and a half into going out to grab lunch and then continuing for the entire two mile ride home.
I'm not sure if it's jumping out and back into gear, or it's something with the clutch. Any thoughts are appreciated before I tear into the motor, though.
