97 GTi 2.0 8v poor performance and stalling. - stef1244

I have the above mentioned vehicle and I am not mechanically minded, but these are the problems Im facing. It running like a three legged Donkey. The revs are up and down and it stalls. When it is left a while it will start but is still rough. Its not long had a service which included new plugs and leads`and the timing is correct. I have not long had the car.
Im being told that it has a AAG engine and the code is 00513-G28. After testing it, the signal is out of tolerence.

Basicly I have not a clue what could be causing this!!

Can anyone help? Many Thanks

G28 is the engine speed sensor or crank sensor,a common fault on your Golf.The obvious thing to do is to renew it.
