Yes there could be a problem with the IAV valve. What happen's is the screen get's clogged up with carbon all you need to do is pull the valve off and clean the screen see if that help's.

Sounds like your alternator is starting to seize up. Remove the belt and spin the pulley by hand. If you hear a light grinding sound or the pulley is stiff then the alternators bearings are worn. Take the alternator to an electrical repair shop for rebuilding. I usually pay around $50 as opposed to $100 or more from a parts store. Look up auto electrical repair in your Yellow pages. Older VW's are known for starter and alternator failures so finding a cheaper source for parts should help you save some money.
