golf mk4 throttle body problems - colin_90
My wife's Golf has done 29000 miles and recently started to stall while stll cold, when declutching for roundabouts etc. The garage cleaned the 'throttle body' saying it was a common condition at that mileage, but denying it should have been cleaned at the recent service. My question is whether using supermarket petrol creates more deposits in the throttle body and would using an injection cleaner every 5000 miles help to stop this biuldup?

A dirty throttle body is usually only an issue on the turbo engine when there is some oil in the inlet tract.
If it is an multi point injection engine the fuel goes nowhere near the throttle body.
Look for a vacuum leak or a temperature sensor problem.
