Hello all! I recently purchased a 2001 Cabrio for my daughters first car. It is a really nice vehicle, especially for its age. We bought the car last Tuesday from a local mom and pop dealership. She started up and ran just fine while we did our test drive and for the following two days. On Friday my daughter and I went out to practice driving (she is still on a permit). The Cabrio didn't want to start up and took a few tries to get it going (about 5-7 minutes). When it did start it ran fine. We drove about 20 miles to the Air Base because there is less traffic there. She ran fine the entire way. My daughter then practiced for about 90 minutes. When we took a break the car was idling and then stuttered and shut off. I couldn't get it to start back up. We left the car there for about an hour and came back. I fiddled with if for a couple of minutes and after some hesitation it started. We started driving it back home and the car stuttered and stalled going about 65mph on the highway. I pulled and replaced the fuel pressure regulator and made sure the bowl filled up with fuel (actually overflowed a bit) I also checked for spark from the coil and number one wire. It was getting fuel and spark. Ended up towing the car home and it still won't start. Anyone have any ideas? I know on my old Camaro there was a ignition module inside the distributor that went bad and it had sort of the same symptoms. Is there an ignition module like that on the VW? Thanks for any help you all can give. And yes I tried searching for answer before I asked this, none of the current thread issues seem the same as what is happening to this Cabrio.
