Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
1996 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0L SFI 4cyl
The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under hood, center, upper engine area, driver side of engine block, mounted in distributor.
This sensor performs the same function as a crankshaft position sensor; providing a signal to the ECM regarding the position of the crankshaft.
Although the camshaft position sensor is an essential input for the ECM to determine ignition timing, information on testing the sensor is located in of this guide (autozone.com / free register).
Hope help you; remember rated this help. Good luck.

SOURCE: cam shaft sensor
there should be a right angle sensor on the right hand side of the vanos unit [im picking it's a vanos] and you are standing in front of the car. get a 5mm maybe 6mm allen key and undo the single bolt holding it to the engine. it sholuld slide out easily. then follow the lead under the intake manifold & unplug, can be a bit of a pain to get to but is possible. then install new sensor in reverse order.

no each one has its own job,
crank sensor is counting crank shaft rpms
cam sensor is counting cam shaft rpms
is there any lights coming on just as this is happening?
i think you should have the fuel pressure checked when it dies out,you need at least 50psi at fuel rail
