  1. Riding along in my automobile, red Oil light comes on Followed by Battery light Oil light goes off. I stop immediately. Get a tow to the garage Think it's the alternator. Garage call. Engine Ceased, makes bad noise, won't turn over. 2007 57 127,000 1.4 Tdi in very good condition. Engine Rebuild? Engine Replacement? Scrap Car, start again, cut loses. Any input gratefully received. Thanks for reading Colonel23
  2. Hey again. I have had my engine management light read. Error codes 00532 dtc status sporadic 16804 p0420 catalyst system bank 1 efficiency below threshold 16687 p0303 cylinder 3 misfire So ive sorted the misfire. Ignored the 00532 as its airbags But the catalyst. The guy said it could be an oxygen sensor. I know there is 2. But he cleared the errors and none have come back after a few hours. Should i get this looked at as im a bit miffed to be honest. Part of me thinks when the alternator and ht leads went these are residuals
  3. Hello again. After having the alternator sorted (and fault codes that confirmed it cleared) i drive 30 miles and get flashing check light..which i noticed the engibe sounded a bit blowy and was down on power. So i pulled over pushed all ht and spark leads in and car then ran fine the 10miles home. Engine light has stopped flashing and is solid. No other lights or funny business though. Has anyone had this and could shed some light before i fork out again!! Cheers
  4. Hello, I'm own a 1998 WV Polo Classic (6KV2) with an 1.6L 8-valve 75HP gasoline engine (AEE). Whenever I try to start the car in the morning, I get the following situation: Engine starts, idles correctly, but if I touch the gas pedal (even in neutral) it will choke and nearly stall. Afterwards it works just fine (even if I stop the engine and start again it's ok). The problem only seems to come back if I leave the car turned of for at least half a day (or overnight). It also seems to be a bit more pronounced in cold weather. Any idea what could be the cause of this
  5. Decided to have a crack at replacing the sensor as it seems like a 2 min job, however being a complete noob, my brain was frazzled after opening the engine cover. Is the green thing in the photo the sensor? Any help would be appreciated, cheers.

    Hi all Ok where do I begin so I bought a 93 Polo coupe about a month ago. About a week ago the head gasket went wasn't willing to give up on the car so had that fixed £600. I had it back for 4 days now. Its started losing power feels like it's shifting down a gear have spoken to the garage where I had the gasket done. Taking it in again just wondered if anyone had some thoughts on it? Just don't want it to become one of these cases where the car fault can't be found and keeps going in and out of garage. Also have found out that a few people I know somehow turned into mechanics overni
  7. This drives me crazy (no pun intended). The car drives majestically for a 22 year old car and the 1.4 engine is flawless to some degree but aside from my leaking suspension which I fixed, my car rattles or clicks should I say whenever I drive it for an hour or two. The noise comes on small bumps and can be heard only from the inside. You could also hear it whenever you give it more gas and lift the clutch faster (when the engine tries to pull you away), maybe like a hammer hitting an anvil very weakly (metal to metal). It makes me feel like I have an axle which is loose
  8. 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?
