Polo MK2F 1.3 Electrical Fuel Problem? Video attached! Help please :)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, if anyone could help me diagnose my problem that would be amazing! I'm sure its down to something electrical? I have recently got back hold of the car (off road since'15) I had her firing a few times  but running naff (always near enough flooding) so since these things I have changed; spark plugs, battery, replaced 1 HT lead (misfire), dizzy cap, oil sensor, blue and black coolant temp sensors, full service (oil, air & fuel) and also added and exhaust system. I have also added a gasket to the throttle body which was missing and fixed the one which sits between this and the carb (thick black one). Only after getting this far with the car today I've managed to see how bad the carbs flooding, if anyone has any ideas what it could be please let me know OR if you get the nail on the head I will PP you a beer token! :) Many thanks video here -

I am struggling a bit to follow what you say, and judging by the lack of replies, so are other people.

Do you know if the fuel RETURN pipe is clear of obstruction? - If you are not sure, I would suggest that you (1) disconnect the return pipe (2) remove the fuel tank cap (3) use a tyre pump (cycle tyre pump will do) to blow through the pipe back to the tank.

If that pipe is clear, I would then (1) depressurise the system (2) remove the fuel pressure regulator (3) clean it and put it back.

If you have had the injector out, did you check/replace the two 'O' rings (Large one at the top, small one at the bottom.- There should also be a gasket under the injector 'cover'.

If the points that I have outlined do not make much sense, maybe you could send us a picture of your SPI unit, we may be able to spot if there is a problem with its assembly.

 

Regards
