check the PCV valve. Then check your coil pack. Then make sure there is fuek pressure at idle.

Yeah legacy central is a good source for information, just try to research what you are asking about a little or they might lock your thread. Thats what they did to me.

Sounds exactly like a problem I had with a 77 VW Scirocco. Check the compression on all four cyls. Also, take a dollar bill or a pice of paper, and with the engine running at idle, place it loosely over your exhaust while holding it firmly (so it doesn't get sucked in) and see if it gets occasionally sucked up against the tailpipe. This would indicate an exhaust valve not seating.
