Hi I have a 1990 vw jetta 4cyl gas

when I started it to come home from work, it ran fine for about 2 km and then started stuttering and died, when I tried starting it again it started and ran perfect for about 5 seconds.

Eventually in a very bad mood and needing to get home I realized that if I started the car and took off, I could flick the key from run to on position and back to run quickly I could keep it running and drive at normal speeds with the car running fine, except for having to do the key trick.

about 20 min into the drive home I noticed that the car kept running even if I didnt do the key trick, but seemed to be not running right a when accellerating unless I did the key trick.

I made it home but am baffled does anyone have any idea?

thanks a million
