Dose my VW need new electronic fuel modgules or something ?

Asked by Jul 21, 2015 at 05:46 PM about the 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 87 Cabrolet. Starts fine but idels / runs rough for about 5 minuets, I then runs great. After stopping  anytime for 30 minuets or longer, it starts and runs rough again? Even in 80 degree weather when the engine is clearly warmed up. It runs like it has a stuck choke.. After a few minuets it clears up. No one has been able to fix it yet?  Last effort was new fuel injectors.  Any suggestions on what to try next?
