I changed the EGR Valve and the EGR Solenoid and the car is in limp mode. Restarted numerous times and will not reset. Pulled and plugged vac line to EGR Valve and am out of limp but in diminished performance. No poop on hills. EGR system is clean. Help!

Any error codes? You should have at least one related to the EGR system because you plugged the EGR vac line.

Try checking the low power checklist, the limp mode FAQ is more targeted towards situations that will be temporarily fixed with an engine restart: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/low-power-fix-TDI.htm

Most common problems are the other vac lines or maf sensor.

Also, post moved to mk4 technical section since it's a little more than an intro.

Does no poop mean it doesn't belch black smoke or that it doesn't have any pickup?
