Low idle issue

Asked by Aug 15, 2016 at 03:38 PM about the 1989 Volkswagen Jetta Carat

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is having issues with the idle. It has
since I got it over a year ago. The newest
problem is that it wants to shut down when
pressing in the clutch. I can start it fine and
it will stay on if I have my foot on the gas
but the second I push in the clutch to put it
in first it shuts off. Never got low on gas
have changed the oil 2 times already. I take
care of this car. Any suggestions on what I
need to do?
