Hello! I'll try and make this short and to the point:
I have DPF light on. Low power which feels a bit like
limp mode. Yesterday as I was driving about 45 mph,
I turned off car and restarted and the power was restored!
If DPF were clogged, why would power be restored?
Could it be sensor before DPF?
SIDENOTE: I removed transmission/reinstalled and I left
off clamp holding on EGR tube closest to firewall. It popped off
while driving and shortly thereafter DPF light came on and low power.
Thank you for any advice/input some of you might be able to offer!

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Forum Rules and Guidelines

Any problems search TDI Wiki as that covers write ups and forum posts.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

Agreed, I'd scan for codes and go from there.

I just replaced the G450/451 sensors after experiencing similar issues but you won't know without pulling codes first.
