Hi. are there any faults codes stored? I would check the air filter and vacuum hoses are all good. Also check that the fuel supply is good.

SOURCE: mk1 vw golf problem starting when cold ?

The first thing you may want to do is to replace your coolant temperature sensor. This is arguably the most important sensor on the vehicle, since it tells the vehicle's computer how hot or cold the engine is. What's most likely happening, is the sensor is sending an incorrect reading of temperature, making the computer think it's warmer than it really is, causing the car to attempt to start too lean.

The sensor is generally under $20 and is easy to purchase and install. It's usually located near the thermostat housing with 2 wires going to it.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)
