Hi!
My golf (2000) was doing the same to me. it occured to be the faulty EGR valve (it was closing and cutting the engin off) needed to have it replaced

My vw golf 1995 keeps cutting out when I slow down any answers to why?


Could be alot of possibilities. When was last tune up - filters, spark plugs etc? A partially clogged fuel filter is highly suspect.

VW Golf MK3 1996 P - Car cuts out when slowing down. Battery and Oil lights come on. Restart the car then starts juggering. Its not a fluid purring from the engine.


i would start by cleaning out the throttle body. they collect soot and not have to be a lot either for it to mess up the idle speed, i had trhis on mine soon as i dipped the clutch to slow down the rpm dropped to about 400 to stall, i cleaned throttle body out ( taking air intake off and wipe round inside and the butterfly will be enough) and now it idles and the rpm dont drop below 900
