Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
Find another shop. The problem is in the vacuum system, most likely with the vacuum advance. If the car dies when idling in gear there is a problem keeping the throttle from adjusting correctly, unless of course it has a manual transmission in which case you wouldn't be leaving that car in gear without the clutch activated. Check the Vacuum advance, MAP sensor and Throttle position sensor, one or more of those is going to be faulty unless you have a major issue in your heads like a blown head gasket or bad valves.
