VW 1.8L PROBLEM STARTING MY CAR WHEN IT IS HOT

1990 Volkswagen Corrado • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 120,000 miles

1990 VW Corrado 1.8l G60 mileage: 120,000. I'm having a problem starting my car when it is hot. When starting, the idle is very rough, and it feels as though there is not enough fuel. It idles rough and dies. It can take up to  ten starts until the idle goes smooth enough for me to press the accelerator and get the Rpms up. Doing this while it is idling rough has no effect. Once the Rpms go up, the idle smoothes out at 1,100 and everything fine. Any ideas? I have no problems starting it when cold.

Your car is equipped with a computer controlled engine management system. An independent auto service center can scan your computer for fault or error codes. The information should pinpoint the malfunctioning components. You may find a faulty temperature sensor or oxygen sensor.
