Jetta dies at redlight....code P0322

So I was driving around and my Jetta died while at a stop light. I turned the key and after 2-3 sec the car stated back up but the EPC light was on. Drove into a parking lot, turned the car off and back on. Started up with out an issue but now the check engine light was on. Lucky for me I was only a few miles from a part shop and was able to look up the code. While stopped the car died again and started up after 3-4 attempts. Drove nice and easy and was able to make it to the store. The code was
P0322 “ignition/Dist Engine Speed input Circuit no signal”
Of course I was WTF does that mean so I had the guy look it up. Their little computer stated “poor electrical connection or faulty CKP sensor”

After checking the code I go to start the car and it won’t start. Pissed off cranked the engine for about 15-20 sec and it started up however it would not go above 3000 RPM.

So I take it that my crankshaft sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. Does that sound right?

Where is it? What does it look like? Is it easy to do? And is this going to cost me my left nut? Anything cause the sensor to fail or are they just junk?

Oh yeah I have a 2005 Jetta 2.5L with just over 60,000 miles on it.
