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. If their is moisture try blowing it out with compressed air.

first check cylinder 1 , spark plug, ht leads, coil,
then clean the trottle body with carb cleaner
if that does not work replace the throttle body, comes complete, and do a basic setting on it with diagnostic machine

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.
Insert key and start engine.
Warm Idle should be 750 rpm, plus/minus 40rpm.
If this is unsucsessful....you need a scanner to go to 'Engine' and go to 60 Basic, to set ''Throttle Adaption.''
