find your local vw service center and see if they can plug their computer in to see if there are any codes on the cpu. there may be one for an intermitent for the turbo. i ran into the same problem last month and it was the turbo veins are sticky so occasionaly it lack power going up hills. it did not cause the check engine light to come on, but there was a code on the cpu when they checked it. if it happens again while you are driving, pull over, shut the car off for 10-30 secs then restart it and see if it makes a difference. when it happened to me i called my guy and thats what he had me do and it was like a new car after that.

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Battery is on the drivers side behind the left headlight. Remove the battery cover by pressing 2 tabs in on both sides, remove fuse panel block by pressing same tabs and fold back, remove battery hold down using 13 mm socket and ratchet. Be careful not to loose bolt and hold down. Next disconnect battery cables. Hold those out of the way. pull battery forward and up. Install in reverse order. Note removing battery can cause codes in the control modules. Radio could will more than likely have to be entered and window adaptations will have to be reset. This really should be done by a dealer or someone w/ Vagcom. The reason is sometimes you need to reset the throttle body and transmission adaptations.

PROCEDURE TO CHANGE FUEL FILTER
1) open the drivers side door pull the hood release.
2) lift up the hood, ideally your car has been off for a few hours so it's not too hot under tehre.
3) look to your left there's a cylander with four hoses coming in and out of it. (two in, two out)
4) pull the mickey mouse looking pin from the two hoses that are in the back. the little circular thing should pop out with a little bit of effort.
5) look inside the fuel filter, doesn't it look gross? Aren't you glad your changing it? (most of the time it's going to look gross even if it's in good shape
6) Pull the squeeze clamps back from the other two hoses (the front two)
7) carefully pull those hoses away from the fuel filter (they both will probably have a little gas in them)
8) unscrew the phillips screw to the right of the few filter and remove the fuel filter'
From here you can try just draining the water from the filter and seeing if that solves your problem or you can replace the fuel filter.
9) the most important thing is to remember to put some diesel inside the fuel filter before you start your car other wise it'll be alot more difficult to start.
10) put everything back in place and start your car.
You'll probably have a little difficulty at first , but if you just keep cranking it (don't be afraid diesels are tough!) the car should start in less then 2 minutes. Obviously use common sense here but it shouldn't be too bad.
