When I was driving home from school today i came to the toll booth, since i don't have ezpass i had to stop to give my money to the lady. when i came to a stop i noticed my car stalled. then i wondered why since i popped in into neutral. i have now noticed that my car sometimes drops down to around 400 RPM's and stalls one in every 5 stops. what is wrong????

my key is floppy and sometimes if i put the key in a certain way it flops down...
alot of times when the key is in that position, i hit it with my knee and turn off the car when i slouch in the seat to get money from my wallet.
could it be that simple?

lol I used to think there was a problem with my key, too. You have to insert the key so that the VW emblem on the front is facing you when you turn the car on. The key is only floppy because the weight of the key os working against it and essentially flipping it closed http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
