2000 Volkswagen GTI

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Volkswagen GTI 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

we have a problem with the engine. It started sputtering, and running rough with the engine jumping all over the place. We smelled a sulfur smell and the check engine light started blinking. We took temporarily took the catylatic converter off. And still jumped around. We think it might be the coils on top of the engine. We cant really afford to take it to the dealer to be charged 600 dollars to get it checked. The sulfur smell is non existant now. It seems like it runs a little better when your in high rpms. We need help
