  1. Hi! I have an issue with my current (and previous engine to some extent) I have this noise that drives me nuts, previous engine was quite worse, but IIRC pretty much similar. On the previous engine I changed rod bearings, tappets, even piston rings (while I was in there as I wanted to check if there is any play in the wrist pin), and the noise still persisted. On the current one I only swapped out the tappets to ones that felt solid to squish. Is this tappet noise? Youtube link here Any help would be appreciated. P.S. it sort of loud as I currently don't have an exhaust on postcat.
  2. Hello all, this is my first time posting to this forum. I currently drive a 1998 golf MK3 1.6 cl which has the AEE lump. Recently it has started burning oil and producing blue smoke. I have managed to buy a replacement 1.6 AEE engine from a 1999 S reg polo 6n1 automatic. looking at the engines I can see that the blocks have slightly different mounting holes for the gearbox bell housing bolts. I know that the polo uses the 085 box and the MK3 uses an 02K DGH box. Is there a possibility that the polo engine could work with the 02K gearbox with a few missing bolts? Or do I now have a rather large AEE paper weight 😂😂😫 Thank you!
  3. Hello you Guys, I am working on a motor conversion. A 1.6 AEE engine in my RHD polo MK1. it is the only RHD polo in the Netherlands. There is no brake booster in the polo. I would like to build in 1. I think there is too little space to build in a brake booster. Are there any members who have built a 1.6 (16V) engine in a 86(c) in combination with a brake booster. or I just do not have to whine and kick harder on the pedal. the last option is to convert the polo to LHD. Although I would find it a shame, it is still quite unique a RHD polo in the Netherlands.
  4. Hello everybody! I swapped my 1.0 AER engine to a 1.6 16V AVY, replaced the engine loom, the ecu, the chip in my keys, and the little receiver around the ignition barrel, (and a lot of other stuff, like pedal box, etc) but I couldn't replace the immo box, because my loom has 6 cables, and the donor car's box has 8. (I have a 98 model, so I have the later wiring) Is there a way to connect the new immo to the car without a professional? Or what should I do? Thank you in advance!

    Polo 6n2 GTI - twin colored

    Originally I joined as I got a 1.4 16v coupe 6n2 as a backup car. I have a 3.0tdi A6 that I like to tinker with a lot, and still have a ton of electrical issues with it, the most significant being related to a manual to automatic transmission swap... so I do tend to keep it at a shop a lot. Also it did proove not much practical for a daily use. But as my mother’s 6n2 gave birth to all of its fluids, I decided to give her mine and get something better, as I was already looking at a possible engine swap for the 1.4... As a result I got a pretty sweet GTI. I did’t expect much. Got it from a dealer, which was already a bad omen , but the car was in a surprisingly good visual condition. It hasn’t been driven since at least an year (January 2017) with less then 7000km done in 2016. I got it on 138 000km, and its last history is from Switzerland from 2013 at 118 000km. It is kinda believable that it could have done only 20 000km in 2014 and 2015, but here rewinding the milage is still very much a thing. Still it looks like being close to that arlt least. The car had its gearbox repaired while at the dealer. Everything else was in order. Of course for the first several days there were no brakes , until the calipers remembered how to work. I got it from another city, so it wasn’t the smartest idea to bring it home directly after sitting for so long, but it performed flawlessly. Of course by Murphy’s law, exactly on the next day, I got the ABS lamp on, and a bit after that the Engine check on also. Thse were because of a rear light speed sensor and a misfire in cilinder 1. Alongside the standart service, I changed the spark plugs, the spark leads and the spark coil and the speed sensor. But still occasionally (I think when I sit in traffic) it does log a misfire, which I can’t even register. Will do a compression check next year before installing the LPG system, as nothing else looks suspicious. The only other issue it had was that the left window didn’t work, while from the driver’s door I could only open the passenger’s windows with both positions of the switch. Also the central locking button on the door could lock the car but couldn’t unlock it. Today I repaired it by fixing a cut wire between the door and the body. What I plan to do with the car: - repaint the red parts - the current paint job is ridiculous and I’m not sure I like that it is not metallic. - repaint the calipers - also pretty badly done - reupholster the steering wheel with red stiches and reupholster the ceiling - update all the speakers (some are torn) - get 14” alloys as it came with 15” ones, and my winter tires are 14... Will keep the 15 for the summer - soundproofing - that is a must. Not only for better audio, but also for the rare cases where I need to get it on the highway... It really lacks a 6th gear - refurbish the headlights and get new blinkers - fix the hooks for the rear seats, because, of course, they both tore the moment I tried them - at some point I’ll add rear speakrs and an amp - as mentioned above - LPG system with lightweight bottle.
  6. Hi Got a bit of a problem with the car. While driving at 100kph and coming to slow down and down shifting to 4th gear and trying to rev match, when pressing the accerlator slightly, the car would not rev up at all unless you press harder which case over revs. Also when accelerating from stand still, the car hesitates very badly and feels like it doesnt want to rev. Once you get past 2000 rpm it goes ok but below that it just feels like it doesnt want to rev at all. I've only noticed this today when i drove it. Weather was very bad, rain and hailing like crazy . not sure if maybe got in anywhere?? also noticed that the temperature gauge didnt really move at all from the cold position. The weather was very cold outside however. Related? any ideas

    Polo 1.6 L 6kv2 1997 Saloon

    Starting a fresh thread for my Polo Saloon 1997! Thought it was best as I first debuted it on the introductions thread page I have owned it since October, and have sadly not really had much time (or money mainly) to do anything to it. It's been an awesome daily, and is fun to drive. It really does need work though. I'm going to attach some pictures of it, and update this thread whenever I do anything to it, hopefully you guys will enjoy! Regarding the plans for it, the first thing that needs doing is it's clutch, then sort out it's perishables, then get me some nicer wheels!
  8. hey polo peeps!! I've fitted 6n2 GTI hubs onto my 6n2 1.4 8v and now the wheels are toed in massively ! the hole for the track rod end to go into is 10mm closer to the steering rack than the 1.4 hubs and I've now been 2 weeks without my only car trying to figure it out. so far the only solution myself and the mechanic at the garage doing it while I'm at work have is to put threads further up the track rod and chop the ends off to make it fit but surely there's something were missing ? some part that needs changing???? I'm at a loss and I want my car back from what shouldve been a 20 minute job ? anybhelo appreciated- we've checked ball joints, track rod ends, checking wishbones soon but everything seems to be the same !!!

    I'm Back! Ross' GTI

    Hi all! So after some years since owning my last polo I am once again a polo owner! Had a 6n 16v as my first car which I loved and spent too much money on. I am sure the build thread is still on here somewhere. Here is a quick picture of it before I sold it Then the urge for more power kicked in so I upgraded to a MK4 Golf GTI which I wish I never sold. Again, spent far to much on this one as well (will see a common theme going on with my cars here) Then came the biggest mistake I ever made, moving away from VW. Brought this money pit of an Astra which had nothing but problems. Brought it as I needed a diesel and it was cheap at the time although now I know why it was cheap! Now as I am moving into london I only need a cheap run around I thought I would get a polo again. This GTI popped up cheap so it was brought this afternoon for £900. Its got just under 100k on the clock and is in great condition. Got a few bits to sort as with any 16 year old car but overall I am very pleased with it Going to try not to spend much on this one but I'm sure that wont last long as usual!

  12. Hi everyone, I've bought a mk 2 project with the intention of doing an engine swap... found a 1.4 mk3 golf donor car that from what I've been reading should fit straight in (abd code) but the 60bhp seems not worth the hassle.. will a 1.6 polo/golf motor fit? Are they short blocks? Don't mind making mounts and converting to carbs.. just need a bit of a heads up before I get donor car... cheers
