Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
This looks very like either the crank sensor or cam sensor is faulty. The are OK when cold but as they warm up everything expands just that little bit and if there is a break in the wiring inside them then a gap opens up and it dies. When it cools down things contract back again the gap closes the break reconnects and it works again. If it is possible put straightened out paper clips (called 'back probing') into the back of the wires at the sockets to these devices and then use a voltmeter to detect the voltages on them. Check when cold and then every few minutes as the engine warms at idle. One of the sensors will begin to reduce voltage as it gets warm, this is the faulty one that needs changing.

Hi. I agree with the cranks angle sensor. sounds like atext book example of the fault it causes. The cam sensor will cause hard starting on this engine, not cutting out. Replace the g28 angle sensor.
