MODELS CAR STARTS, RUNS THEN DIES

Electrical problem

Hello,

I have a VW Cabriolet 1989. Here is the problem. I have toubles with starting it (especially in the cool/cold weather). In order to start it I have to push gas pedal several times. When I turn the key it starts, but then suddenly dies. The only way to keep the engine running is to press constantly gas pedal (or push it back and forth all the time). After engine runs for about minute or two the problem disappears and I can drive. Could you give me an idea what is the problem?
Thank you!
