I have an 01 Volkswagen jetta 1.8 turbo 2.0 car that cuts off on me while im driving and sometimes doesn't start. Someone said it could be my speed sensor, is that it?

If I make a stop at a light or anywhere it cuts off or if im anywhere it wont crank up.

Any dash warning lights on before this happens? Could be your crank sensor. When it hapeevs check for fuel pressure and spark if it dont start.

Scan the vehicle and post the code, with the fault, I can tell you what to replace.

You'll either have 12 faults, all related to the FP relay. Or an "engine speed sensor" fault, which will lead to the crankshaft sensor.
