Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
My car will start but, the second I let go of the key, it dies. If I give it gas, I can keep it going, but by brakes are locked, and the second I ease off the gas, my rpm's drop and my car dies. Checked all my fluids, they looked fine. It feels like my car is out of gas, but I've got half a tank. Is this the fuel injector? The clutch?
Check your spark plugs too

I had the same problem although mine seems to be be getting over it. i use lucas fuel injector cleaner about every other gas fill up. if it is your injectors this cleaner should repair the fuel injectors if not this site i use for parts (autohausaz.com) has everything really cheep. at least 50% of if not more..

It is a good possibility that the ignition switch is bad. they go out in almost all of the late 90's golfs and jettas. it takes approx one hour to replace it and is not for the faint of heart. you must pull the airbag and the steering wheel. then you can get into the switch area.
