Why does 1996 Volkswagen Jetta Gl start very hard and dies with quick throttle push? Slow and

Will keep running once started and fine at idle. Slow pressing of the throttle and rpms increase fine, but if you push the throttle quick it dies. Coded camshaft position sensor A circuit range. Assumed it was distributor and replaced it. Close to in time, but not much better. Maybe a degree or two off. Also codes tank ventilation valve open circuit. I am lost as to what that is.

What is the fuel pump pressure? When you put the throttle down, there is not enough fuel to match the air inlet and it dies.

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.


With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.
