    MK4 GOLF issue with SURGING

    Hi guys, had my golf about six weeks, had fault with surging up down revs, normally when cold but would still do when warm, after look round under bonnet i noticed split in vacuum hose, got new one from VW. fitted that but fault persisted, then last thursday car broke down on me, stalled on approach to lights and would not re start, turned out be the ERG/EGR valve, but now and again i still get this fault of car surging and cutting out at junctions etc when you slow down and change down gears, now i believe you get same symptoms as you get with a air leak, (split vacuum hose) as you do with clogged up throttle housing etc and was wondering if any you guys who have own a mk4 golf 1.4 have had similar issues and could shed any light on it. otherwise great little car, Thanks Chris.

    Could be the sign of a throttle position sensor on the way out? Happened on my Mitsubishi Colt gti many years ago

    So long as its driveable, if you do track it down to that its apparently a very cheap fix.
