Engine Mechanical problem
1983 Volkswagen Rabbit 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 150, 00 miles
I have a 83 rabbit convertable 1.7 with 150,000 miles. It takes a long time to start and idle. It will crank and start, idle for a few seconds then stall. The more I start it. The better it gets. After about 10 to 15 times starting it, it will stay running, but when you step on the gas it stalls. When it gets hot it runs pretty good but, skips when you accelerate. I've replaced the cold idle valve, frame mount fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and fuel filter. Now the strange thing I found when I press on the rubber boot air intake tube between the fuel deliver system and intake the car stalls. I am not sure now if it's an air issue or fuel issue Can you help. Thanks
have the same problem?
