Engine Performance problem
2000 Volkswagen Cabrio 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 79000 miles
Car has a problem I notice only after it rains the night before. Car starts right up - no problem but it does seem to run a little rough (tach moving between 9-10). I start down the road fine and then the car stalls, I pull over and it start right back up. I can even give it gas in park and it feels smooth - no hesitation. I then put it back in drive and go a couple hundered feet and it stalls again. This might happen 3 or 4 times (it's dangerous). But if I let the car sit after restarting and let it warm up say 3 to 5 minutes it won't stall any more and tach is on 9 steady. I've replaced battery, plugs, wires, rotor and dist cap but still has problem. Again if I let it warm up it will work fine.
