The crank sensor must be installed so that it does not rub the flywheel otherwise it will just break again.

SOURCE: Overheating Polo

this sounds like a thermostat fault, but also could be the sensor switch to the radiator but is more likely the thermostat, it should be located at the front top of engine, follow the top water hose to the engine and you will find the thermostat housing, also just a heads up, these had a problem when first made, according to the known fixes and problems with VW's the hoses corroded inside and started loosing water, this could be wise to get the system presure checked to...hope this helps

SOURCE: My 1997 VW POLO CLASSIC has a new fuel pump

It is possible if there are codes in the ECU(computer)
which leads you to that conclusion.
And it's hard to tell you if your mechanic right or wrong without having the car for diagnostics.
There are many other causes for engine to loose power.

Jeep fault codes

I had the experience on a 1997 Volkswagen Polo Classic where the distributor sensor was operating intermittently. The car worked and cut out without warning. This also gives the symptoms you indicate of no spark while the sensor is not working. Install a new distributor or just the distributor sensor, if you have the means.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem

Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.
