I have a 1981 vanagon and it stalls when coming to a stop. I have replaced the coil, air intake regulator, sanded the grounds, replaced the fuel injectors and had the ECU tested. When it runs it runs well, but after running and coming to a stop it often dies and then is challenge to get started again without opening the trung and disconnecting the hose which allows more air in temporarily. I am stumped and what to try next. Thank you for any suggestions!

Check and test the EGR valve and also the throttle valve switch

Check for a vacuum leak, the intake boot, and the rubber on runners. 1981 is a air cooled and has no EGR
