Don't shoot me. But this is an old problem. The old polos did the same. I used to drive. Then It would just cut out. Leave it standing for around 20minutes. Start it again. And it runs like there were never a problem. Solution.fuel pump relay. Out of my own experience
That isn't something that can be guessed at on the internet
You have had many things replaced already,necessary or not & some testing done as well
I assume you paid someone to do that & only having a repair shop with the experience on your type vehicle will be able to find the issues
The internet is a good place to find & learn some things, but you have taken the repair shop approach, as a result of the complexity of sovling the issues & I wonder why anyone would feel someone would be able to guess at any vehicle issues without the vehicle to test.
Vehicles for the last 30 years can only be fixed in a repair shop or dealer. There are to complicated. Without all the electronics,you could probalby solve most problems in your driveway
a car of that year should have an ecu controlling fuel air mix etc. this normally controls the timing. To reset the ecu on my '95 VW Golf disconnect the battery (negative / black terminal) for 15-30 minutes depending on who you ask. So I do 30 minutes. If it has central locking make sure you don't leave the keys in the car when reconnect it. swich on the ignition without starting the engine so the dash lights up with the oil light etc. for 30 seconds then off for 10 seconds. then start your car. It will relearn so it will run a bit rough for a while but should settle down. take it for a spin on different types of road ie. slow and fast.
If it is a diesel it might be the same issue as I also had with mine. What VW does not do well is tell you in their TDI diesels you need to use a 505.01 approved oil otherwise your camshaft lobes will be rounded off to circles and not tear drop shape like they normally are. Most lube places don't have the correct oil that is approved by VW and it leaded to the premature engine wear. I have 88K on mine and they said the engine if blown and sounds like the turbo is going out also. You might get a diag. at a VW shop to see if that is it! Hope you find the problem!
