Had the same problem with my 1.4 litre. Cleaned the throttle body thoroughly with a toothbrush. It was OK for a couple of month, then it was the same problem again. I then drilled a ~4 mm hole in the butterfly. No problems after that, and that was about 4 years ago.

Check your Belts first to see if they are loose, worn or slipping.
Check your Battery Connections. Take off the Cables and clean both the Battery Post and Cables with a Battery Cleaning Brush.
The Battery Starts the vehicle and runs nominal operations.
The Alternator provides the electricity to Run the Engine. It also provides a small trickle charge to the Battery, recharging it.
If the Alternator is failing, it will draw electricity from the Battery, until eventually the Alternator will fail and deplete the Battery, rendering the Battery (and veh) Dead.
A great way to check the Alternator is to:
1) Start the Vehicle.
2) With the Egine Running, Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery.
3) If the Engine Dies, then the Alternator is bad and needs to be replaced.
The Last possibility is the Battery is old, losing it's charge, or losing it's capability to be charged. If your Battery has rectangular caps on top, carefully remove one-cap-at-a-time; and using a Ball Float-Bulb Tube Battery Tester check each cell (hole). More than 2-cells (out of 6 cells) below 50% constitutes a new Battery. Also check your Battery Fluid Level. Use DISTILLED WATER only when adding Fluid. Remember that Battery Fluid is highly Acidic and causes burns.
