AudiDoc :

Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.

AudiDoc :

Ok, you've got yourself a pretty decent mess of codes there, and they're not all related to one single failure

AudiDoc :

The engine dying is going to be related to a faulty crankshaft position sensor

AudiDoc :

Then for the other codes:

AudiDoc :

P1292: replace the thermostat assembly

AudiDoc :

P0011: check belt condition. If the timing belt was done recently, then it's off a tooth. If there is any sort of chatter noise on cold start or at idle, check the chain drive at the back of the head

AudiDoc :

Make sure the tensioner is not collapsed

AudiDoc :

Essentially, make sure all base cam timing is set properly

AudiDoc :

But for the dying problem, replace the crank sensor
