Hi all I have recently brought a 1992 polo coupe 1.0l 4 speed the issue i have with it is that when i turn it over it starts to surge and then will rev up to about 3000 revs and sit there then go back down. Any ideas what this could be?
NebulaicToaster posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustDuring a long drive my polo has developed a sort of gentle slow regular tap when the clutch is in and first gear is selected. Could this be a case of low gearbox oil or perhaps the clutch release bearing? No whine or grinding and it seems intermittent, as in I can't replicate it on short drives. I'm in the middle of a very long trip but potentially could get some parts shipped out with a friend in a week. Also what's the stock gear oil volume and rating? Haynes says 2.2L SAE80, is that right and is there a modern equivalent?
Anyone know how to set up the bolts on the coupling of a 4 speed MK2 gearbox, I can't seem to get the bolts tight and still be able to select all the gears. I don't understand the Haynes instructions to be honest. With the screw (right hand in pic) not fully tightened I can engage 3 & 4, but 1 & 2 are only available by pressing in the stick as if for reverse. Reverse cannot be achieved. Any advice from someone who's done this before would be much appreciated.
