1999 VW jetta WB edition ran perfect before parked for 30 days.

Asked by Sep 18, 2016 at 12:24 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car was idling about 900 rpms now it idles at about 1100. It won't go past  
2500 rpms before it quits. I let loose of the gas pedal, press it again and it will
keep on going to 2500 but super sluggish. Could condensation in the gas tank
be an issue?

I doubt condensation, very well could be your tps or throttle posistion sensor which can effect idling and lack of throttle response.
