Symptoms: Car will run/drive for 5-15 minutes and then die, needing to completely cool down before restarting. CEL came on when this started.

Codes:Image

I'm going with bad coolant sensor at this point?

The vag-com will show you what the sensor is reading.. have a look at that as well.
I've replaced one once when that error came up, the sensor pretty much fell into pieces when I removed it from the housing.

Well I gambled and lost... coolant temp sensor was fine. Now that vortex archives are (mostly) restored, I can 99% confirm it's the engine speed (crankshaft) sensor. I'm kinda fine with having done the other one first as it's like 1/4 of the price of this one... looks like I know what I'll be doing this weekend.

Apparently if you remove the oil filter it's not bad... coincidentally I'm due for an oil change
