Could use some more data such as:

All the time?
Only hot?
Only when first starts?
Only when wet?
Did it start after after buying cheap gas or adding gas from an old gas can?
How long since last tune up?


I would suspect bad ign wire leaking high voltage or it is not getting to the spark plug OR a fouled plug. Sometimes you can hear the spark SNAPPING to ground or see it at night. Often you can get bad wires to show up by spraying them with a mist of water from an old spray bottle and uptting the car in gear with light acelleration. Make SURE to NOT stand in front of the car while somone is jazzing the gas!!!

Been a while since I have worked on a VW but most often it is plugs and wires.


Hope this helped,
