Question about Volkswagen Golf
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

Part number on my vw mk3 1996 is for a pipe from the crankcase pressure valve, 037 103 493 AK hose/pipe £13.69 plus at vw garage, 10 mins to fit, the pipe had worn holes in the corners, car runs fine now no cutting out at junctions or roundabouts.

As mentioned in earlier posts. Remove clean the throttle body refit then carry out basic settings on the throttle body with suitable software on a computer plugged into the diagnostic socket.

I had a 1.4 8 valve and it used to cut out when slowing down, it also used to lose power for a few seconds when driving on the motor way. I replaced head gaskets throtle bodies and everything and it ended up being the engine bay lome. maybe its the same with yours!!
