But the engine light isn't on..With that being a sensor wouldn't the engine light be on throwing a code?
VW Mechanic: vwtech0405, VW Technician replied 2 months ago

At times when the crank sensor is starting to fail it will not trigger a fault once the sensor have a lot of issues it will cause a p0321 , you can check fuel pressure but the most common issue in the 2.5 liter engine is the crank sensor issue . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback for the help provided thank you .
