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.

YES THERE IS A SENSOR, IT IS LOCATED ON THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE WHERE THE TRANSMISSION AND BLOCK BOLT TOGETHER NEXT TO THE STARTER AND ALMOST UNDER THE OIL FILTER COOLER

Best thing to do is a fuel pressure test, the car does not have to be running to do the test just turn on the key. You can rent the pressure tester at auto zone.

It sounds like the engine is pulling fuel from the tank, and not replacing it with air, causing a vacuum to build in the tank. The vacuum, may build to the point that it resists the fuel pump's efforts to **** fuel from it. If the vacuum is sufficient, it may collapse the tank, or expand the fuel enough for the engine manifold vacuum to **** raw gas into the evaporative emissions control system, hence the cannister.
Replacing the fuel pump, and filter will both break this vacuum, and make it run well for a few more miles, until the vacuum builds again.
The tank is usually vented to relieve pressure and vacuum through the gas cap.
Basically, sounds like a bad gas cap.
Try driving with the cap loose or removed. If that fixes it, buy a new cap. Preferably a locking one, as the amount of fuel these trucks hold is pretty tempting to less than honest folks. My 1990 C2500 has a 34 gallon tank.
Coil?? with the other symptoms, how'd you come up with that?
