  1. My 6n2 automatic has just started playing up this morning. It starts ok and will pull away, but then shakes and judders at low speeds especially when standing at lights etc. When I pull away it feels like there's no power, and seems to take ages to change gear. I was going up a hill at 40mph earlier and by the time I got to the top I was barely doing 15mph. The car has only just had a service and MOT 3 weeks ago. I have no idea what's wrong!!
  2. Hi I have a 2006 Polo E 1.2 which I have owned for around 6 weeks. It has been fairly sound apart from a few odd things. However today I had a 25 mile run on the motorway where midway through the journey the Engine Management Light started flashing, it then went solid. The engine itself runs fine, no odd noises or smells. I have had an issue where the car looses revs and starts shaking like-a-crazy when in traffic or idle. This is intermittent and is usually fixed by turning the car off and on. But it could be related? There is a strange knocking sound when I start the Polo this also comes again when changing from 1st to 2nd gear but not after that. Also related? Finally the EDP light comes on before ignition and does not turn off unless I start the car. Any ideas what thats all about? I really hope one of you guys could help me out particularly if you've had the similar issues with the 1.2 3cyl engine, I will get it to a mechanic as soon as I can but sadly Im a bit busy at the moment. I just seriously hope the car doesn't need to have a new engine or anything else major.
  3. Basically.... I have a 'wobble' or rear end 'twitch' when braking or taking bends. This has only started recently and I have had tracking done to see if this affected it, changed my wheel bearings, checked my suspension and ensured my camber was correct.... Still no change and am wondering if anyone knows what this could be? Also, in one of the pictures it shows a black dust on the rear wheel. This is on both sides and I'm assuming by the texture and the wear on the tyres that they have been rubbing but they are not touching the arches or suspension so I have no idea what could be causing this??
  4. So i've had this car since 2005 and every thing is just well. just stepped over 120k miles recently All of a sudden the car starts shaking as if its running on 3 cylinders. So i figured it was time to change the coil above the plugs. When i did, it was still the same. They were all firing enough power. All sparkplugs are good. Something i've noticed is that when you start the car and keep on going, it runs smoothly no problem at all. I can even go around 100 miles no problems at all. Once i stop at a traffic light, it stays calm, all of a sudden the ideal rev goes slightly down and the car starts shaking, very low power. I have to turn the engine off, count to about 10, turn it back on and runs smoothly again. leave it ideal and it starts shaking again. The only solution i could find to the stopping at traffic lights problem is to keep my foot on the fuel paddle to where the rpm gauge stays on 1500rpm or slightly higher, not less. has any one got any advice for this problem? Any thing appreciated
  5. Hi all, I've just bought a 9n3 2007 1.2 S, which appeared to drive great on the test drive, but tonight after buying it seems very lumpy on idle. It's fine when cruising normally, however I've noticed the following; It hesitates when accelerating, before deciding to accelerate a few seconds later Doesn't move off well from stand still in 1st The worst issue is at stand still, with either my foot on the brake or handbrake on, the car is juddering quite a lot - almost like a misfire. I know the 3 cylinder engines aren't the quietest, but I can't believe this is the normal behavior for a relatively new engine with low miles. It shakes through the cabin, and the pedals. Way too much to tolerate if sitting in traffic. Not sure if this is telling me anything, but when turning the key to the first ignition switch point, all the dash warning lights go out except Battery, Engine management, EPC & Brake. Not sure if the EPC and engine management should stay on at this point? The idle sits at around 800rpm, no hunting etc... I need to act quite quickly to get this resolved as it's a new purchase, any help would be appreciated! Thanks
