Check all your air pipes for leaks,rips,tears etc
the other thing it could be is the air flow sensor, this regulates the air the engine gets to mix with the fuel, when they are on there way out they tend to choke the engine giving no air or to much hence stalling. it may just need cleaning so dont buy a new one until your sure.

Also the EGR valve could be on it's way out but you normally get an engine light with that.

hope this is helpful

My engine will suddenly cut out whilst driving, but usually when I am waiting at lights?

if it cuts out when at lights or stop signs and your foot is on the brake , it is very possible that the brake booster is leaking air
test that by running the engine at idle with the hand brake on and if it is ok but fails when you apply the foot brake , then replace the booster
the advice to run the engine on a long drive is not really good advice as the ECM ( if it is fuel injected) will reset the tuning level for the new fuel with in 5 minutes of constant speed driving

Timing belt was broken whilst i was driving on the motorway now wondering where can i get used engine from? how much it should cost me

i had to call every scrap dealer in england(nearly) to find a compatible unit.( same output will fit,BUT they produce power differently at different engine speeds...)the blocks/heads are the same though.i managed to get the whole front end of the car for about £1000. NOT CHEAP.if the block was not damaged ,only the head and pistons/rods.your looking at around £1200 for new.../250 scrap head

Golf mk 4 gti turbo starts up but wont rev past 2000rpm

turbo is malfunctioning the turbo waste gate is not working take it to a shop right away, preferablly tow it so as not to damage the engine, if the exhaust gas's gets near the turbine bearings you will burn up the engine and the turbo cna explode like a hand granade and destrou your enging.

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out

Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck
