Guys thx for your helpful advice, nice to know there are caring ppl out there, ok the led trick, well its simple remove the camshaft sensor out of the car, connect wires to the small connectors in the senser, add a 5v batt to give power. then just use anything thats metal and wave at the bottom of the sensor. this will make the led flash. Which shows the led works. let me know if you need more detail.
My car im going to now check if the timing is right, i have to buy a special timing tool around £50. if thats correct then check air sensor as you kindly suggested.

Thank you for your suggestion, i have taken the car to a garage where they did plug in a vag-com, the vag-com did read a cam sensor fault. however i checked the cam shaft sensor with the old led trick, turns out the sensor is fine. another mechanic did say the timing chain might be out one or two notchs? what do you think?

I can only recommend that you get a VAG diagnostic check done - either by a VW equipped repair shop or you can do it yourself if you have a laptop computer and about £15 for the interface cable.
It might even be in "limp mode" but 3k rmp seems a bit high for that.
I hope this helps.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
