Try a heated oil dipstick that will keep the engine block warm over night for warm starts in the morning just don't forget to remove the heated one and put the original back in before taking off

The rotor bearings are bad in the fuel pump. Pull the gas tank and replace the pump before it fails, it will likely be in the near future or when the weather turns cold..

1977 vw rabbit will not start and run if cold,


Ther are a few items that could be causing your problem. first there is a temp sensor that turns on a cold start valve to give it a shot of fuel to help start when cold. second of corse would be the cold start valve is bad, and not spraying like it should. And then you also have an item called an auxillary air valve that lets in more air durring start up that could be bad. and ect ect ect. The best thing to do would be to get a book called Bosh Fuel Injection & Engine Managment written by Charles Probst and published by Robert Bently. i got mine at Books a Million, but am sure you could order one on Ammazon. You have what is called a continuios fuel injection system CSI for short, and can be a bit of a bear to work on without any books. Once you read and understand what you have , the better of you will be. On the bright note, this is one of the most reliable type of injection systems on the market, and yours being an early year without any type of computer, is very easy to work on.

1977 VW Gas/Fuel Injected Rabbit


It sounds like it could be a problem with the fuel pressure regulator. When the engine is cold, there is a cold start valve that dumps extra fuel to start a cold engine.
