Greetings...... I've got a 2003 GTI/1.8t, automatic with 82k miles. It runs fine except when it's cold (50 degrees). It will start up & idle just fine, but when put into gear..... it pops, sputters & backfires a lot. Place it back out of gear, it's fine. I have to wait about 5 minutes for it to warm up. Once it gets going it's fine for the rest of the day. What gives ? I would really appreciate any input or direct me to the correct site for a fix. These forums are great for info. Thanks in advance.
