At start-up, my '88 Jetta Gl idles fine.  But after driving a few minutes it begins to sputter drastically.  If checked fuel pump, alt., air flow sensor, etc.  I think my ecu might be bad.  I need to know the correct ohms when I check the ecu connections.

I'm certain you could find the correct setting by looking in a Chilton's manual for your vehicle.  Most libraries have them either on the shelf or can access them through inter library loans.

I used to have a VW Fox many years ago. I had a similar problem which was almost inpossible to diagnose. It turned out to be a problem with vapor lock. If you park the car next time it is happening, motor running, and open the fuel filler screw cap it may help. If nothing else it will tell you if it is actually vapor lock.

I own an '89 VW Fox, and i am currently having the same problems. It happens typically in hot weather, and when my Fox has been parked outside in the sun. check the pressure of the fuel in your gas tank.
