Why do you continue to take it back to the VW dealer? Find another local garage that can help. I read your issue and to me it might be a fuel related and most times you won't get a CEL light.
Thanks for ur answer tom. I returned it to VW coz i thought they are the expert with VW it hence the name VW garage. Thanks.
check your fuel
It's very common for the fuel pumps to go bad in all Passat diesel cars, try checking that. It's located under the back seat on the passanger side.
