CAR CUTS OUT WONT IDLE

1996 Volkswagen Golf

Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Volkswagen Golf 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

I have a 1996 gti golf 16v 2.0l mk3 that wont idle it starts ok and runs fine when pressere applied to throttle pedal, I have done the following
1. Removed throttle body and cleaned out and replaced
2. Removed all air/breather pipes and replaced(one pipe was blocked solid)only pipe not replaced was one from throttle body into bulk head.

i was advised that it could be the ISV but after finding out price I want to be a little more sur and make sure there is nothing else I could check


also not sure if any connection but the lid of the brake fluid resivour has a blue peg/pin sticking out of it you can push it down but it floats back up could I have info on this to thankyou.
