Question about 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet
If you car wont crank start I dont think the fuel system is the culprit.
You probably have a sensor issue that starting the vehicle in motion overcomes.
You should see about having the engines diagnostic codes read and see if any sensors are out of range or stuck.
It sounds like an idle air control valve or throttle position sensor has gone bad *(perhaps both?)
Be safe and good luck!
