    My new daily

    My new daily, found myself needing a petrol engined car rather than diesel as I live so close to work. So a 12 plate 1.2 match, which drives surprisingly well and well refined for such a small car. No ideas what I'll do with it, if I mod it at all as to be honest it wouldn't pull the skin off the rice pudding, but I like it.

    Ambient Temperature Sensor - 6N2

    Cheers! I’ll tackle it this weekend and see how it plays out!

    Ambient Temperature Sensor - 6N2

    First Welcome to the forum. The sensor sits behind the bumper cover on the passenger side, you might be lucky and find the wiring is already there, if not it only requires one wire to be run through the fusebox to the speedo and a ground wire
  7. Hi all, I recently bought the chrome dial set from the GTI variant for my 1.4 (6N2 model). And this has got me wanting to try fit a ambient temperature sensor (which as they’re the same platform I imagine is possible), however never having looked over a gti to see where it would mount and the cabling goes I’ve hit a bit of a brick wall! Is anyone able to shed some light on where the sensor sits and cables run?

    Polo 86c 1.3 air intake help

    Have a golf elbow, has the oil breather on the bottom too which will be an easy fit. Also have a 1.4 injector plate with the bolts to add the elbow

    Polo 86c 1.3 air intake help

    Yes, you are right, thinking carb not injection/SPI/MPi But is that on an AAK 1liter - not a 3F or NZ which have none dustbin lid filters - if these pictures are to be believed. https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1986-9/1/ (complete guess of the Mk2 year)

    Polo 86c 1.3 air intake help

    That's the charcoal filter valve, technically that should be removed along with all associated pipe work and charcoal canister before being hurled into the nearest rubbish bin, but let's not over complicate things. 😂

    Polo 86c 1.3 air intake help

    The black pipe is feeding cold (ambient) air from behind the headlight. The silver pipe is feeding warmed air from above the exhaust manifold which is about 200 degrees. There is a vacuum operated flap in the black pipe which is pulled close over the silver pipe when a thermo-valve in the dustbin lid filter housing has warmed up enough. A VW engineer carefully designed the system for year round operation in cold damp hot humid dry or icy weather. But as Cymro says... Are you sure it is 1.3. There's an idle control valve on the bulkhead, which I thought were 1litre specific.

    Polo 86c 1.3 air intake help

    Unclips cover, remove cover, 3 bolts around the centre, lift off entire assembly disconnecting the breather pipe. To remove the studs, get 2 nuts, tighten both against each other, "undo" the bottom nut and the stud should turn, it is a slow process as the stud creates a vacuum behind it, don't rush or it will snap. Find a MK3 golf SPI elbow, longer bolts, block any open vacuum pipes, reconnect breather and jobs done.
  13. Hello guys Please let me know if this is posted in the wrong place Just wondering if anybody knows how to remove or replace the large circular air intake on the standard engine bay of my polo, looking to change to a cold air intake but unsure how to do so. I included a photo to show the circular air intake system. Thanks so much for any help. Ben

    Copper fuel lines

    I reckon 150 liter per hour pump (33 imperial gallons per hour) is enough for 300hp through 8mm pipe. http://ipgparts.com/blog/fuel-line-sizing-what-size-do-i-need/ My pump only needs to produce 2psi at the carbs so it's good for 160bhp https://www.dellorto.co.uk/shop/car-accessories/fuel-pumps-regulators-accessories/huco-low-pressure-12v-fuel-pump-133010/ For 3bar/45psi at fuel rail you need something hefty https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/automotive-plumbing-solutions-high-performance-fuel-pump-fits-vag-1-8-20v-turbo-apsvag65v/ gives 265 liters per hour for 500bhp consumes 10.5amps at 13.5 volts for 40psi.

    Not SORNED? What???

    This is the right forum section, by the way. Since 2013, SORN notification became indefinite (forever) this means it no longer needs to be renewed annually. Change of registered keeper or bringing in back on public road are obvious exceptions. Can be driven to pre-booked MOT with SORN (if insured). Might the DVLA have made a mistake at address change?

    I know how it goes on the mental health bit dude, what I'll say there is don't sweat the small stuff, and a SORN goes under the heading of the small stuff. I'll drop you a pm with my experiences in court with the DVLA, but the short version is, you've got fuck all to worry about. Check your emails and texts in case you SORN'd it online, and have a rummage through your paperwork in case you got a receipt posted.

    Head unit install

    Has anyone got a good thread for installing a head unit on a mk2f as I can't seem to get my pioneer one to get any power iv bridged a wire from the ignition live (black and yellow wire) to the unit power and nothing happened.
  20. So after doing a 180 mile trip last Sunday, I didn't check my oil, I checked it this evening and there was no oil what so ever on the dipstick. Now I topped the oil up about 3 to 4 weeks ago as I saw it was low and carried on driving etc, untill I checked it today. I Do not see any kind of leak, and there is no smoke. I have put more oil back in but only just halfway on the min and max. And I also out cardboard under the car for tonight. As I have work at 6am. Any idea as to where my oil went? Or is it normal for a vw polo to go through that much oil on just 180 mile trip?

    Not SORNED? What???

    The direct debit rolls for a year and providing the car has mot it will auto renew but if the mot is out you have to manually renew that tax i think Cant see how a sorn would cancel on its own unless the car became taxed then there wouldnt be a problem of unpaid tax. Ask for proof its been on the road?

    Not SORNED? What???

    I can't see anything that would have changed in Jan...? No email notification. All I see is that my Direct Debit stops in September 2017, which sounds right. The last one is there alongside my new Polo's. Why else would that have happened? I have literally not had a word from them about this and they're making me out like I've done fraud or something. Like I can guarantee that car hasn't showed up on ANPR cameras or anything cos it hasn't been outside the garage in over a year now!
