Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
First clean the throttle body to eliminate it as a potential cause. Use some carb cleaner on a rag to remove as much of the deposits as you can but do not spray the carb cleaner directly into the throttle body itself. This oftem resolves issues such as this.
If this fails to resolve the issue - have the car scanned for fault codes as a problem like this is often associated with faulty sensors or a misfire in the engine.
You can have this done at AutoZone for free and this will give you a definite diagnostic pointer as to what is causing the problem.
Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Thanks.
