Could be a faulty crank sensor:

VWAUDI Forum CLICKY

Could just need a throttle body clean and an alignment carried out:

You can do this if you have a VAG-COM cable and software.

Just some reading I did on your behalf

The oxygen sensors won't kill your engine, just make it run funny (either lean or rich) or give a check engine light.

We need to know more about the situation before we lead you down a wild goose chase of parts replacement.

Can you describe the symptoms leading up to when the engine cuts out? Does it seem like it's a gradual decline in power, or does it run great up until it quits? Does it backfire? Is there a check engine light?

What about diagnostics? Have you checked fuses (both in the cabin and under the hood)? When was the fuel filter last changed? What about the air filter?

Lastly, can you describe the car? Manual/Auto, number of miles, recent maintenance?

Rpm sensor, behind the oil cooler on block, could possiably be the problem.

Sorry for being thick, is this the same as the crank sensor or are they seperate (serious question!)??

Looking in my repair manual it mentions:

Incorrect idle speed
Fuel filter clogged
Emissions sensor fault
Intake pipe vacuum leak
Faulty fuel pump

Regards, Ian

the car runs great up until it quits, I can be driving fine and suddenly it dies, i got these codes
p0322 (Ign./Distributor Eng.Speed Inp.Circ No Signal) and i bought a new ignition coil, and it did not help.

p0102(Mass or Volume Air Flow Circ Low Input) do you think this may shut down the engine?

p0112(Intake Air Temp.Circ Low Input) i dont know what is that....

p1128(Long Term Fuel Trim mult.,Bank1 System too Lean) ??????????

those are the codes I got, do you think any of those may kill the engine, like a said before the car starts great, you drive it great, but after 10 or 15 minutes if you are lucky , the engine dies, like if you cut the gasoline or cut the battery cables, there are no signals.

please help!!!!!!

thank you for the replies

Yes, it is the same as the crank sensor. Also have him check all the vacuum lines. The ones that are on the EGR valve on the back of the exhaust manifold. And above the air box ther is a valve that has two vacuum lines they are braided and may look good but they leek on the inside. Tell him I hope this works. If you have anymore questions email tkeys@lindsayvw.com

that is who is feeding me answers =)

Sounds like a serious MAF fault. Try running the car with the MAF disconnected to test.

The first fault code indicates MAF.

The second, the MAF also measures inlet air temperature.

The third, the MAF is indicating a lower air mass than actually is therefore its not fuelling up fully.

It may even be the electrical connection !! Running without will prove it as it may run slightly worse but shouldn't cut out.

I may be wrong but give this a whirl

Good luck, Ian

Do you mean the crankshaft sensor?
thats my last try, i changed the ignition coil, the MAF , the fuel pump relay and nothing, I think now, i have to change the crank sensor, and if that does not work I will have to buy the fuel pump which is expensive
