Without the benefit of any testing, I'd guess that either you have a problem with an injector or possibly a bit of water in the fuel. A bad ignition cap, rotor or wires can also cause similar problems but most times it will show up at higher rpm's as well, especially under a load such as climbing a hill etc. Not positive if yours still has the fuel filter on the chassis near the left rear tire or if it's on top of the fuel pump assembly, but if it's on the chassis, if you haven't changed it in a long time it might be a good idea to do that. After you remove it, pour the contents into a clean glass jar and see if there is any water in there. You can check the ignition wires with an ohmmeter but an easy way to check them is to look at them in total darkness and see if there is any glow or arcing around them...Keep your hands out of the engine bay when doing that so you don't touch something and hurt yourself though.

VW Cabriolet RPM decreases

Hi, it sounds like you have dirt, water ,gunk & grime in your inline factory fuel filter ,.Its located between the tank & the inlet manifold,.
once you located, have it changed it, or have it changed, (its a steel canister with flow arrow) ,check for lacquer peel, which is a sealant they sometimes use in fuel tanks, check contents of old canister by pouring remainder into a container and check for this, it will be flacky particals, if severe, have tank tanken out of car & cleaned, this is due to not having the tank full most the time, Also, check your air cleaner , it will help with the cars performance. hope this helps, Kipper 25257603-fhf2ppg4i12i45qd5vaymkeg-2-0.jpgmake sure arrow on filter face front of car....

VW Cabriolet RPM decreases

to me its sounds as though you have dirt ,gunk & grime ,water, in the main inline factory fuel filter, ,it will be a steel canister type, between the feul tank and the intake manifold, change filter,( u may need a mechanic, or someone handy with a spanner, once off, tip contents into and look for laquer peel, some tanks are seal with this, and it will some times peel ( especially if tank not kept full). if that is the case, have your tank taken out & cleaned, also, check airfilter, car will run better n cheaper to run, Hope this Helps.

Car blows white smoke at high rpm runs bad

hmmm...This kind of problem usually is due to cam shaft/valve timing issues. Sometimes, the cam shaft is not properly positioned and is not in sync with the distributor thus the exhaust valves open early releasing unburnt fuel. This will cause the engine to definitely run bad.
I suggest that you try to adjust your engine's timing first (cam and distributor) and then see the results. Also, remember that there is a limit to the rpm that an engine must do- about 6,000rpm is enough for high or max hp. Another information, a camshaft will only work best at a given rpm range so if you run your engine too low or too high, the engine will not work properly. In fact, there are special cam shafts for engines intended to run at high rpm while sacrificing lower rpm levels (the engine runs grumpy at low rpm levels).
Worst case, however, is that white smoke sometimes indicates that oil enters your combustion chamber, this will cost an expensive rebuild if such is the fact.

Intermittent fuel starvation,high rpm at idle restart eng all ok

You should verify you have proper fuel pressure. Check with a gauge when cold and hot. Possible clogged fuel filter is not allowing enough gas to feed engine. Verify pressure at idle and also under load when driving.
