check your battery, alternator see if its keeping a charge. if not that check your air filter/maf...if its low ideling then dying you might have a clog or might not be getting air etc.

we checked the battery and we replaced the spark plugs and wires along with the distributor cap. if there is a clog or something, should something need to be replaced? and at this point it wont start and rarely turns over.

get a new car Volkswagen's suck

have you checked ur altenator? it will cause your car to run off your battery for x amount of time until theres not enough power and it eventually dies.
