I saw something similiar on a 2000 TDI Beetle and I
tested all kinds of things and after much research
ended up replacing the temp sensor on the head that's
for the controller.
But I'm not sure that it actually helped. I had a
problem with the EGR valve being all caked up.
Just something to look at. It's on the backside of the
head on the drivers side of the engine, if memory
