Hello, VW polos 1.0, 1.4. 1.6, suffer from carbon bulid up in the throttle bodys causing bad idling, esp the Bosch Mono-Motronic (Throttle Body Injection systems), a good clean with carb cleaner should repair the problem, also engine temp sensor replacement and idle speed control valve replacement can help idle problems.

The first two things I would check would be for vacuum leaks. (Dry-rotted vacuum hoses, fittings, etc.) Another thing you'll want to check is your EGR valve. When an EGR valve sticks open, it will allow exhaust gases to enter the intake, causing rough idle and sometimes stalls. While the engine is running, tap on the EGR valve gently with the ****-end of a screwdriver and see if the problem clears up.
Being this old of a car, I'm willing to bet it's a vacuum leak, but you're the one with your eyes on it. :)
Good luck and I hope this helps! :)
