I appreciate your feedback....thank you! Would the things you mention just cause idling problems or the stalling too? I know the MAF can cause a lot of problems and that is something I was thinking about.
Now, the booster tubes... do you question that they need to be replaced?
I did not take it to a dealer, I know better than that
I took it to an independant mechanic who is well known in the VW community here and only works on VW's and Audis. I guess what the mechanic is saying, is because they can't reproduce the stalling... they don't know where to start and they don't want me to spend money but just replacing things on a "it might be this" basis. In all honesty, I don't know what booster tubes are... even "car" people I know aren't sure....
