Goes into "limp" mode ( loss of power) with slight increase in load, acceration or hill climbing Can be reset by turning off engine and restarting.

Have done all the normal "fixes" , Cleaned intake manifold and replaced all Vacume lines -- problem persists ??

any suggestions

What engine do we have?
What "normal fixes" have we tried?
Any warning lights coming on?
Have you tried spraying the big intake hoses with WD-40 while running? If there's a crack in the hose, revs will increase if it sucks in any WD-40, thereby indicating a vacuum leak.

After a re-read, I see it clears up after a restart. Not likely a vacuum leak then.
Temp. sensors are also a common fault. They're about $45 if you just wanna throw some parts at it.
Maybe one of the pressure hoses for the turbo?

Possibly something to do with the turbo. if you go to http://forums.tdiclub.com they have a TON of write-ups about it.

If this is still an issue I can meet you somewhere and have a look, I have VCDS / VAG com to scan your car and fixed limp mode several times.

For free of coarse! Very Happy
