    Check for air leaks, vacuum leaks at the engine for starters. A good performance diagnosis is in order to help determine further cause.

    Had same problem on a VW Beatle..turned out to be a Crank Sensor..... after i replaced that it ran Normal again.... Get it Code tested & look up ..Thats what i did. Did all work myself..cost about $100.00 for it though.

    Typically crank or cam sensors fail and then have a hard time restarting right away. Anything can happen, though, of course. That's why the diagnosis is so urgent.
