VOLKSWAGEN GOLF ENGINE PROBLEM

1993 Volkswagen Golf

Why does my car keep cutting off in the morning when it's cold, after about 10-15 minutes it stops cutting off and idles fine. When it cuts off the car doesn't shake, the RPM idle just lowers and the car cuts off. The car will start right up. It cuts off at low idle like stopping at a traffic light. It only happens in the morning and the rest of the day it runs great

Could be a faulty temperature sensor. Engine computer adjusts fuel according to temperature. If the computer thinks the engine
is warmer than it actually is, the engine will not get enough fuel.

Have someone check the temperature sensor signal to the ECM.
