PCV Valve 1.2 polo 3 cylinder location? Burning oil?

Recommended Posts


So I just checked my plugs on my car and they look like this. First plug was from the far right cylinder the first and second one looked the same. First picture is cylinder 3 second picture is cylinder 2 and 1 looked the same.


I'm having a problem of oil loss. I believe the car is burning oil, but from where? I have tried looking for the pcv valve but can't find any info on it, do the 3 cylinder polos even have a pcv valve?


If it's not the pcv valve, I'm guessing the guide valves or something else is failing? 


I've only had the car for about 2 Months ish, paid almost 1k for it. It's only on 86k miles, although I believe it wasn't looked after due to a 17 year old owning it.


I really don't want to have to buy another car if this would be an easy fix. 


Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!
