  1. This just shows how much I didn't know haha. Have just seen that my car has an immobiliser (as is standard from 1994 I believe) but my keys don't have any buttons etc, and also after fitting and using my recently installed remote central locking, could that be a reason for car not starting? If so, can I bypass it, even just to see if the car will start and then I can go from there?
  2. Afternoon all, This is the latest to what I have done, checked, researched and looked at. Starting at the beginning, a couple of weeks ago I started to have problems starting my '96 1.4 Polo. Sometimes taking up to half an hour to get going. I changed the HT leads and sparks, and the time to get started went down to about 10 minutes. Then last week after changing the fuel filter that had the date 1995 on it, the car started, but the idle was very erratic (between 400 and 2000 and bouncing between the two) and there was clear arcing from the ignition coil pack. I took it for a little spin, and it was bunny hopping badly and I had to nurse it back home in high revs 1st gear. Since then, it will not start. I got a VCDS Lite thingy off ebay, and it gave me all this as shown in the attached picture. I have done multimeter checks as per youtube vids and suggestions on this site, and all seems ok apart from zero resistance on the ignition coil pack (the bit that was arcing). I have taken the sparks out and checked if they were sparking to which all of them were (I'm not sure if that would happen if the Coil pack was shot), but they are new sparks and they are already very black and oily. Is the issue(s) fixable (although not going to spend a fortune, or is it more likely terminal and better to break the car and see if others want parts? Thanks
  3. ok, I finally got a VCDS reading done, and it has come up with 6 error codes. I am wondering if these 6 codes could be interlinked to one issue, or if there really is 6 issues. The codes are 00522 00518 00530 00561 00537 01087
  4. After recently experiencing fluctuating revs, poor acceleration and stalling, I found this happening, what is going on? video-1504453932.mp4
  5. Hello guys! I'm wondering if somebody could give me the original number of the 6N1 headlight washers? I want to order them from VW, but I can't find it on the internet :(
  6. I have just exchanged my HT leads after the brand new lot I got before were faulty with the leads falling out, but I have forgotten if the firing sequence of 1-3-4-2 goes clockwise or anti-clockwise on the dizzy cap? Still doesn't seem to want to start (even though it did start albeit with erratic idle with the old faulty leads). Cannot find a TPS but then don't know if my '96 polo has one, don't know where, or if, the MAF sensor is. Have had a look all over the place, but there seems to be so much info out there for polos that are marked as '96's but the engine etc look different. Anyone also know if there is anyone around the Wisbech area who has a fault finder that could come round and plug it in for me? Thanks

    What is the name of........

    The insulating type stuff that is under the bonnet of cars?
  8. Ok, I have had a good read up, had a good look along fuel lines, looked deep inside engine and can find no fuel filter. Did 6n's have them? If so, wonder why someone would take it off, and how easy is it to put one on?
  9. Afternoon All, I have been looking around, and struggling like hell to find out what some of the things are inside the engine of my '96 1.4 Polo. I am expecting some ridicule because some of the following pictures are probably very obvious, but I have broad shoulders :-). I am looking for the TPS so I can check that as after reading lots and watching plenty of videos, it MIGHT explain what is happening with the car at the moment, but can't find too much that resembles anything on the videos etc. I would appreciate someone telling me what the photos are of though, so 1, I learn more and 2, Can involve or discount from current issues. Thanks
  10. Can anybody paste a link to what relays do what for a 6n Polo please? Been having trouble starting for a little while, and just happened to tap a few earlier, and car started straight up, but want to see if was a fluke or related to ones I tapped. Thanks
  11. Ok, Never had this before. Just changed the coolant on my '96 1.4 polo. Now as much as it will start, if i put my foot heavy and quickly on the throttle, it goes to cut out, and is a bitch to start again. Before I did the change, if i pressed the throttle like that, it would just give a quick whistle and rev up as normal. I really like this car, but am getting very disillusioned by the issues I am having at the moment. Trouble to start in the morning and not knowing if fuel pump or what. The relays and trying to find out what they all do because they do not resemble anything I have found anywhere online (numbers are all different and in different places, although not sure if that makes any real difference) and now this after doing a simple coolant change
