Mine did this too. Replacing the coil and wires solved the problem.

I have 1998 vw cabrio just did a tune up runs great in idle put in drive car dies at 20mph can get car to 45 mph but very slowly why?


sounds like either the spark plugs weren't gapped right or the wires are in the wrong locations.
Google search the firing order and check the wires/loactions first, then if they are correct, have a look at the spark plug gaps.

My cabrio wont start it will crank but not fire


When you squirt water on plug wires and the car stalls, that means that your plug wires are bad. PLUG WIRES (not rotor, cap, or any sensor).
Replace your spark plug wires with new, and you should be fine.

2001 vw cabrio runs abnsouloutly great until i changhed one of the bateery in one keys and both keys will not start the cat. but my mechanic tellin me its the coil. but i know if the magnet in the key is...


the key battery is only for the unlocking the doors part has nothing to do with engine starting its just a coincidence this happened at the same time i believe something else is your problem.it could be the coil or even the crank sensor but if your machanic knows your car then go with it if its not that. you should not have to pay for it.

1989 golf turns over, new distribitor and starting


Did you use electric grease on these parts, the plug wires,and coil pack need this grease on there. It prevents moisture and wetness from rain getting within the components and causing mis-fire. Did it rain or was it cold outside to produce moisture. Grease is $2 for small pack. I just worked on a 95 VW, changed the cap,rotor button, spark plugs, cleaned throttle body, new air filter, fuel filter. His would run fine, but would cut off sometimes up to hours until the moisture dried. After tuning it up, he no longer has the problem. He goes through water puddles to see if it will quit, but it hasn't yet. Worth a $2-$3 try.

02 VW Golf runs rough after sitting in the rain.


Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.
