    And if no leaks, take the throttle body off nd give it a good clean.

    Take it that amk is electronic throttle body? If so 4 alankey bolts, one little pipe on the top, a plug to unclip, a gaskets not to lose and a intercooler pipe to come off. I always clean mine with electrical connection cleaner from maplins but break cleaner will be ok in small quantities. Dont move the flap unless you have vag com to reset it.
