    Default Tendency to stall

    The problem is as follows. My 1.8 club petrol has developed a tendency to stall. When I slow to a halt and dip the clutch pedal, the revs fall to around 200 rpm, the engine shudders and then usually recovers. It can sometimes however stall completely. It happens with the Air Con/Fans both on and off. It has done 78,000 miles and has been serviced regularly. To address the issue the garage has flushed the fuel pipelines and cleaned the air flow meter.
    Any ideas or suggestions would be gratefully received.

    It may be that the throttle body and idle control valve need cleaning (common problem on the B so I can't see it being any different on the C). There is a how to on VVOC for it if that helps.

    Thanks, had a quick look and the symptons seems to fit. I am a gash hand car mechanic, so I will have to be careful about this. May just take it to a garage instead!
