    Hmm. I had the map sensor error come back earlier. Havnt had any sign while driving other than the light deleted code and cleaned plug and its gone again. As for the post cat 02 sensor i soft wire brushed the outside and sprayed some contact cleaner and that errors also gone. I havnt had time to sort egr yet but have the part. I cant jack my car up tho so im parking on wonky curbs atm 😕 and its making access to the sensor awkward to say the least. Im gunna get a new sensor and try and get it into a garage so i can have good look at the wiring underneath. Without your help guys i dno how id be doin this. So again thanks 🙂 ill update when i have something to update

    93 tornado red 1 litre mk2/f polo coupe fox

    It’s been a few years again but I’m back 😂 So since the last update around 4 years ago I have moved from Glasgow, Scotland to Derby, England. I continuied to drive the polo for another year or so, fitted some g40 door cards and purchased some rose jointed steering arms and lower control arms before my alternator cracked (I’m guessing due to the solid gearbox mount shaking everything to bits) and I slammed my bonnet too hard and cracked the passenger headlight! So so I decided it was tome to get something “reliable” and bought a Audi A3 3.2 V6 and then it was time to start stripping the polo and smoothing the engine bay. I spent the next year sanding, filling and painting the bay in my spare time while also undersealing the underneath of the car and the inner arches ....i then moved house again (still in Derby) but this time I had no garage so moved the polo to a friends lockup to continue the work After undersealing I removed the spare wheel well and the blanked it off as well as the hole in the engine bay for the heater The rear axle was also removed while the undersealing was being done giving me time to clean and paint it and fit the newness poly bushes (changed from green to red bushings) after that hat I remember fitted the fresh rear axle along with the gear linkage the coilovers were cleaned and painted and I greased up the threads to prevent them from seizing Before being re fitted i then started on the front suspension & steering components, painting the stage 2 subframe, steering arms and antorill bar before fitting them along with my new adjustable lower arms. next it was onto the brakes.... I started by cleaning the relatively new rear drums and painting them to match the axle and then purchased some new VWII Callipers for the front as mine were needing refurbished. I painted them black along with the carriers to match everything else and then greased up the slider pins and fitted them along with the used Mintex pads I had from the last set. Next i I fitted some new braided brake lines all round, replaced my Master cylinder with a 22.2 mm Passat one and made up some new copper lines out of Kunifer copper brake pipe to prevent corrosion as well as fitting new brake pipe retaining clips underneath the car.

    Vacuum line

    I noticed there is a vacuum hose connected to the distributor and the other end is not connected to anything, there is a male connection on the carburetor? is that where it goes ? can someone help me? what does the vacuum line do for the ignition?

    Distributor oil leak

    Unfortunately it’s had to go on hold for the moment. My brother passed away recently and I’m busy sorting out his estate. You won’t believe the paper work! Will post on the forum when I get round to it.

  21. slight bummer but at least the gasket is sound id still suggest moving that plug and lead to a differant location and see if the misfire follows it
  22. Update after a couple hundred miles of motorway: Runs fine, oil leak above the alternator isn't there but the cold misfire is still present. Chalking it up as a win for the oil leak but not going to worry about the misfire, just going to have to live with it as a mild annoyance. It may even disappear once it gets a bit warmer in the mornings, who knows!

    Thanks @steveo3002 this is all good stuff - much appreciated!

    Issues with my GT

    if a temp cable fixes it ...i would unwrap the loom and take a better look , as loads of browns are all crimped into one up near the turret then goes to the battery , so if there was an issue with one then all could be effected , damaged wires could still be enough for a sensor or small load but not enough for the coil wouldnt be the end of the world to repair it all properly
