Like the post states i cant figure this out and need help. When i start the car i have to keep it above 3000 rpm to even drive it. If i keep it below 2000 after starting thats as far as i can go 2000 rpm. If i keep it above 2000 it runs good. Anybody know what can be causing this? I need help asap.

ISV? thats like a vacuum fan right? I cleaned that out. I replaced fuel filter, plugs cap and wire. I also have a temp light that stays on.But with that isv off or unplugged the car wont start. Its the thing in front of the distributer right? Like i said i am looking for places to start and yea my vacuum lines have alot of bolts in them and I just bought the car today. Only drives right if i keep the rpms at 3400. By base timing what do u mean? The cars timing belt is dry rotted lol

If and when that breaks/snaps it won't be a 'lol' and your valves won't be liking that. So check your grounds, also for any leaks and full tune up as stated above and your change your timing belt.The cars timing belt is dry rotted lol
Then you can start troubleshooting with your Bentley
Ok well the car idles fine.....my biggest issue if i want to drive over 20 mph i have to hold my foot on the gas pedel and keep the rpms over 3000k or else i aint going nowhere and i start looking like a teenager trying to learn to drive stick......And serious whiplash
Sounds like the classic hole in the intake boot above the airbox problem..... Floor it in first/second gear and car goes good, trying to slowly accelerate in first and it bucks and almost stalls.

I doubt its the boot on the airbox but I do have a new one. Does anybody know if a golf can run on just one fuel pump? I think my inline pump may be bad. Since I don't hear it prime at all. Would the car drive on the lift pump alone? Just curious. I think its a fuel issue. If I keep it reved abve 3k rpm I can drive it. If it drops below 2k I can't drrive over 20. Also have a bad temp sensor. Please let me know what you guys think. I also have every mk2 manuel available.
