Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Hi! One thing can caused this issues. The PCM (powertrain control module) is faulty and needs replacement. The PCM has connectivity on all electrical current that runs inside the car including, engine, transmission, accessories, etc. The PCM is like a car's brain that when it is faulty everything else fails. Have it replaced and you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

OK! What I think has happened is when you replaced the spark plug wires, you got a couple of them swapped. When the car starts and runs for a short time this is normal for having wires switched. What happens is the spark plug fires at the wrong time and doesn't burn the fuel that it pumped in the cylinder. Which basically the engine will flood after a short time. I would swap plug wires 2 at a time. Then start the engine. Don't let it run long or it will flood again.
