I have a 1999 2.0 mk4 a couple of days ago I was driving the car shut off at a red light tried to start it for about 30 min it would turn over but not start went back to where I left it that night and it fired right up. Same thing happed yesterday. About a year ago I did a tune up changed MAS, crank shaft sensor and fuel pump regulator. I'm completely out of ideas any help would be great

Does it sound as if it wants to start or no?
Could be multiple things.
When was the last time u did your coilpack, wires, and plugs?.
Do you have fuel in the tank? (Never know til u know)
Notice a drop in voltage, rpm, or anything not normal when it occurred?
Is your chk engine light on (pull codes if on and post)?

Yea I changed the coil pack, plugs and wires about 8 months ago and yea there's fuel in it. I always check the basics first. It seems to only happen when slowing down or stopping. Yea sounds like it wants to start.
Automatic or stickshift?

Is ur check engine light on?
Can be a crank sensor maybeeeeee
