My 2000 passat just started making a loud noise when i accelerate and it seems like its moving slower in acceleration and reving higher

my good friend I believe the solution I give might be not good for you as to what you state It sounds that you are loosing your automatic gear box. Have you ever changed the oil & filter of your Gear box? If not that was the reason.

I have a Passat 1.8T, any time the EPC light comes up the car will stop moving but still runing until i off the engine and re-start, but at time it will not start after a while then it can start again....

Multiple faults can cause this.

With this being an ongoing problem you need a shop to scan the systems.

EPC is the Electronic Power Control....or throttle pedal and throttle body.
When fault detected engine will only idle.

Dirty throttle body is often cause of no power or gear engagement with EPC lamp illuminated.
