Hi everyone, Getting a bit bored of being extremely slow in my 1.0L 6N2 (Which yes is obvious it's going to be slow) but until I get my other car on the road, is there anything relatively easy or cheap to do to get a tiny bit extra hp? Obviously there's exhaust's, turbo etc. but just more simple stuff? Had an idea of a little re-map, but doubt anyone could/would do a 1.0L... Thought maybe air filters, although not sure how that would work as there inside the engine cover? Or maybe an EGR delete/blank? But not sure if that would really be worthwhile. Any ideas? Thanks!
Brylo posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustI replaced the head gasket on my 1 litre Breadvan, put it all back together and it doesn't start. it just spins on the starter motor and that's it, it doesn't fire at all. I've checked the firing order a number of times and I've spun the cam round making sure piston 1 and 4 are up. But still nothing. Please can someone help me.
I own a 1.0l 6n2 00 plate and the breaks aren't that sensitive, i mean you have to give it a fair push to get much. would you say it was the break fluid? I'm new to the car thing so not sure what it could be haha! hope you can help harry
Hi all, I'm having trouble getting my 6N1 1.0L Polo through ithe MOT test! It has done about 125k miles. It has failed on me twice now, both times on emissions. First time round my catalityc converter seemed to be broken down, it was an old one it had on it when I bought it a year ago. The readings that time round were as follows: Engine oil temperature: 83 Deg C Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.614% % Fail HC: 459 ppm Fail lambda: 1.112 Fail Second Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.687% Fail HC: 565 ppm Fail lambda: 1.113 Fail Natural Idle Test: Engine Speed: 550-850 Pass CO: 0.496% Pass When I took it for the retest after fitting a new catalytic converter on the readings were actually worse! Engine oil temperature: 62 Deg C Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.800% Fail HC: 823 ppm Fail lambda: 1.213 Fail Second Fast Idle Test: FAILED Engine Speed: 2450-2850 rpm MANUAL CHECK Pass CO: 0.869% Fail HC: 477 ppm Fail lambda: 1.106 Fail Natural Idle Test: Engine Speed: 550-850 Pass CO: 0.489% Pass The guy at the MOT Centre said it seemed to have a slight misfire and that it was burning some oil. About a month ago, before both tests, my Polo had a serious misfire. I found one of the spark leads had gone so I replaced the spark plugs and leads with new ones, this seemed to solve the problem. At the time, I noticed the crankcase breather was full of oily sludge and it had made its way into the air box. I cleaned the box replaced the air filter. Over the weekend I got under the car and check for any exhaust leaks, made sure the new cat was attached correctly to the rest of the exhaust system, I reinspected the airbox and found no sludge in the crankcase breather. I also gave the car a good old italian tune up as well, just in case. I find the trouble with the emissions failure is that solving it seems to involve a lot of fault hunting! My next course of action is a change of oil to a slightly thicker gradient and new oil and fuel filters as it could be the case that the oil is making its way past the piston rings... What are your thoughts on this? Really hope I get to the bottom of this one! Cheers guys! Melo
