Not sure where a cheap Rubber elbow is located on a passat. But do take off the coil covers. They are located under the engine cover. They are the 4 square caps. They come off with a allen wrench i believe 5mm. Then pull them off. Due this 1 at a time. Once off look down the hole with a flashlight.
And look at the rubber surrounding the coil. Their should be no moisture.spellcheck.gif If their is moisture try blowing it out with compressed air.

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

Have you had a diagnostic check? This sounds more like a timing issue, I would have the plugs, plug wires and coils checked first before I get into the injectors.

When you have replaced the TB turn on ignition to the RUN position. Do not start the engine.

After 10 to 15 seconds you should hear the TB cycling. Allow another 45 seconds before turning off the key.

Remove key.

Insert key and start engine.

Warm Idle should be 750 rpm, plus/minus 40rpm.

If this is need a scanner to go to 'Engine' and go to 60 Basic, to set ''Throttle Adaption.''

I've got a vw polo 1999 1.9 sdi. It has no power and it shudders when in low revs. Had a new diesel filter fitted today and it still has the same problem. It takes along time to get to 30mph. What is the...

The best solution I can give is that you take it to a VW mechanic. It sounds like the timing is off. Or the injecters are bad. But first respond back to me as to if it is smoking and what color it is. If the smoke is real black, its not getting enough air. Take out the air filter and rev it up and let me know if it is still black. If the smoke is gray or white, then the VW is not getting enough fuel. Get back to me and let me know either way. Thanks
