Sounds like a vaccum hose popped off or your intake has a tear or crack in it. Any its a big vaccum leak and it's getting unmetered air. Good Luck.

thanks thou...
the reason the batt light came on was cause it was about to stall at 200 rpm's or so... seems ok now..

a few things to try/look at:
vacuum leaks
in tank transfer pump(is the gas level low?)
additional ground from ICU/ECU to chassis per PAGTI91's suggestion.

Re: Jetta keeps stalling.... Help pls (vwtoys)

hmm whats odd also is
sometimes when i start it its not 100% smooth running for the first few seconcs, its like its being bogged down a little low idle then normal and kinda a tadd rough then the idle wil jump up to 1000 like its getting a breath of fresh air then it drops to normal 950ish
hmm
but this was much worse
i checked for vacum leaks and found none hmm mabe i out to take em all off and examine closely..
sigh thx for al ur help
hope itll be ok
