I have a 1995 VW Cabrio. While driving the car hestitates and when I came to a complete
stop the car died. Tried restarting, starter was turning, but car would not start. After sitting
for 20 minutes, car started, but was hesitating and check engine light would come on.
When giving it gas the check engine light would go off. Put a scanner on it, but could not
read as check engine light was off. HELP

Try the code scanner again. Hard to know without the code. Might be a vacuum leak, misfire or something else.

sounds like an air issue. The car should come equipped with a MAF (mass air flow sensor) clean it with maf cleaner and see what happens. also check the thortal plate area for any signs of buildup and if you have not changed your spark plugs and distributor cap and rotor in a long time do that as well. you most likely have a dead spot on the rotor from old age. Be sure to number your wires and mark the caps postion incase you get confused puting it back on.
