  1. Hi there i need some help. Spark plugs in my polo (9n3, engine1.2, petrol) are covered in oil + i get check engine light code no. 16556/P0172 - System Too Rich, Bank 1 and irregular behaviour while idling. Is it possible these problems are related? Engine check light turns on and itself go away after few hours sometime days but later on coming back again and again. Thanks.
  2. Found a camshaft for a 1.3 and the numbers on the shaft between the lobes is 030 9c is this a GT camshaft
  3. Hi all, New to the forum so go easy! Looking for some help. After wanting one for a long time I acquired a Mk2 1.3L CL. The car looks great and I've already fallen in love with it. However I've noticed what I am hoping isn't a massive problem. In the morning the car starts perfectly and idles nicely. However after about 15/20 mins driving the car turns into a bit of a juddering mess. It doesn't idle well and has stalled a couple of times, at lights/roundabouts etc. I'm quite technical but I know very little about cars. I have had a good look online but everyone might as well be talking a different language. I have checked what I know how to do, air filter and oil. Both are good. Seen a few people suggest pushing down on the air filter housing to check if it could be the carb mount/gasket. This doesn't help. I have noticed one thing however which I figure must be helpful. If I stick the headlights on the idle gets 10X worse. Could I have an electrical problem. The previous owner said the two inner lights have been replaced. Could it be something as simple as HT leads? Distributor? Or the huge hole in the hot air pipe? Hope the pics might help?! Thank you, Josh.
  4. Hi I have erratic engine idle on my mk2f 1ltr it settles after about 10 mins then I can drive off. Also its quite slow on acceleration but after a while it picks up seep again. Never had a 1ltr before so not sure this is the norm ? Am I correct in thinking it maybe an problem with air flow vale or fuel pump on way out ? Thank you.
  5. Engine idle is not steady can and help with the code in the photo and replacement part I need please?
  6. Hi lads, I'm on the lookout for an afk engine to replace my akk engine. If I can find one, would this be a straight forward swap? I would intend to remove current engine and box and replace with afk engine and box. I'm also assuming that the ecu and clocks need to be swapped. Thanks for any help! Paul
