What model of VW do you have? And are you saying that the engine died while driving, or just lost power, and after shutting it off it will not restart? Will the engine crank but not fire?

What engine do you have? Did the check engine light come on while driving? And now that it won't start, have you checked for fuel to the engine, or spark at the plugs?
