1990 944S2 Idle

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944S2; Year: 1990; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 100,400;

The car always starts and runs fine most of the time. However, when I drive it, then park it, start it up and drive, and park, etc. it will eventually stop idling. What happens is that every time I come to a stop the engine dies because it won't idle. Once it is running again, it runs fine - no misses, etc. It is not always predictable when it will happen, but usually after three stops and shutting off the engine and restaring the engine, the problems is present. It does matter how far I drive in between stops. Once the car has sat long enough to completely cool down then the problem disappears.My mechanic is far from where I live and it is difficult for him to diagnose the problem, order the part, and fix it in one day, which means that I have to make two trips - one to diagnose, the other to repair. If I could get a possible diagnosis, I might be able to eliminate one of those trips because I could have him order the part.
