My Sharan TDI had those symptoms - it was caused by the cambelt pulley on the crankshaft working loose and wrecking it's keyway so the timing changes. This happens on high mileage TDI's and on TD's too.
This is one case where getting the fault codes read will not identify the problem!
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.
