    do u know if it has mikuni carb or the factory carb? I have a 97 GTI my bet would be to pull the carb clean her out check the gaskets and do a carb rebuild/ cleaning I say rebuild depending on carb internal parts. After that if I would say change the stock grey fuel lines out because they will cause problems for any later owner you can buya spool of NAPA 1/4 in napa fuel line and it will fix her right up, so much so you might not even want to sell the ol' girl.
