The car will keep turning over and over then start. Once started it will idle smoothly until it seems the engine gets warm and then stall out. After stalling, will try to restart and will only crank over. Car is getting fuel, checked the fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coolant temp sensor, maf sensor, changed the throttle body and sensor. Also checked the catalytic converter. I have researched and found that what other people are saying with the same problem, would be a crank sensor. I would like professional advice before dumping a lot of money into parts.
Do you
have the same problem?

Judging from the "Cap, Rotor" remark. You are talking about an A3 Body Style Jetta with the ABA engine?

1999 is a cross-over year which can add some confusion to the help request.

If you need to know where the sensor is or how to replace it. Let me know.
