I want to add a complaint to the Volkswagen mark five model's crankshaft position sensor. For some reason, this senor at times does something to the engine and it kills the engine. It has happened twice in the span of 4 months. Everything is on, including headlights, all electrical systems, steering but at high speeds, the engine dies and I've had to coast to a stop to restart it and restarts without any problems. I've looked at forums to see what could be causing it and my pointed to the crankshaft positioning sensor. It's occurred to vehicles with high and low mileage.
