Question about Volkswagen Cabrio

95 cabrio dies in reverse

My 95 Cabrio starts fine, but when put in reverse sputters and dies. If it doesn't die and I can release brake fast enough it jerks backwards quite quickly. Then I can put in neutral and it will run fine. Usually going into drive is okay, maybe minor sputter. It also is very sluggish when accelerating. Have only had car for few months and had tune-up done when we bought it. The reverse problem does seem a little intermittent and may not be there at all after car has ran for more than 20-30 min.

SOURCE: Reverse just quit on '95 Pathfinder

If it is an automatic transmission it probably needs transmission fluid. If a standard shift check and adjust shift linkage.

SOURCE: truck sputters and dies when you put it in drive or reverse.

Most Likely a vacume leak. Check the engine and surrounding engine bay for a loose hose. I would check the mass air sensor, make sure it is free of debries.

Check your fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.Sounds like the pump might be weak.
