55 plate Touareg

Hi, I am new to this group, we have a 55 plate 3 litre v6, this car has been the bane of my life. When it is good it is great, but in 2 years a lot has gone wrong. The latest, and potentially last happened this evening. On Sunday night we were driving home from my parents, the engine starts making a noise, not a rattle, more just not running well. Our neighbour mechanic suspected a blocked injector so we put some system clean in, took it about 3 miles, it gets no better so we turn around and it gets rapidly very worse, at this point we are crawling. It then stops all together and now it will not do anything. We suspected maybe the cam chain or something like that but are not sure. We are rolling it to a safe place for tonight then will get it recovered but I just wanted to ask any opinions or if anyone has experienced something like this with their touaregs. Any help would be great . Thanks
Rachel
