Engine Performance problem
1987 Volkswagen Van 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 357236 miles

i had misfires and the belts ran off in sandiego. Got the belts back on, changed the wires, plugs, cap rotor. Engine starts fine. After about a minute or so the engine stalls. Starts up alright, but no power and stalls at every intersection unless I push the accelerator pedal and keep it at 900 rpm orso. Checked timing, swapped mass airflow, changed coolant sensor, same problem.
first time this ever happened. Before I changed the airflowmeter and it was fine. It seems fuel is okay at start and then gets too rich.
