Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I can mash the pedal to the floor and get no response in acceleration
This sounds like a fuel delivery problem to me, in other words the fuel is not getting to the fuel rail under the correct pressure, the fact that the car runs is a good sign the problem isn't too serious, you'll have to have the fuel delivery pressure checked that takes specialty tools and requires a TECH that has them, you'll have to pick that person,good luck on the repairman,ask around in your area and check with people who drive the same car as you that definitely helps

Sounds like a clogged intake to me. TDI's like to be driven hard - if you don't wind out your gears on a regular basis the intake can get clogged - causing serious loss of power. You may also have a bad MAF (air flow sensor) but I'd put my money on a clogged intake.
If you drive a TDI you should definitely go to www.tdiclub.com
