In Reply to: stalling and valve adjustment posted by mark '72 golf on September 07, 1999 at 20:28:40:

: In a continued battle to find a stalling problem, I was told that proper valve adjustment is critical to a good idle. Can anyone expand on this? If I nail the brakes hard the car will try and stall if I don't try to catch it by feathering the gas. Other wise the idle is pretty good (considering duels) . Any comments are appreciated.

FWIW - I drove a 2002 about a year ago that did what I think you're explaining. The car would idle fine sitting still, but if coming to a stop with the brakes engaged, the car would stall. Somehow, the vaccuum used by the brake booster pulled the engine down. Replacement of the booster fixed this problem.
