Hello fellow polo fans, I have a Polo 6n2 1.0 from the 2000 with a really long cold start problems. Sometimes I have to try 7 or 10 times for it to finally start. But the thing is that it ONLY happens when the engine is cold. If it's warm, it starts right up like new. I can also feel the acceleration hesitate (like there's a delay in acceleration that suddenly picks up fast) when I start to drive away and the engine is still cold. The car has had this problem since I bought it 4 years ago, but it used to be just around 2 or 3 attemps before it would start. Lately it's just become worse and int
I have a few problems on my 1.4 tdi polo, first is when doing a cold start it has a really rough start, when starting when it’s warm it is less rough but still quite rough. I have read it could be sensors, not enough fuel supplied, glow plug. I have checked for error codes and I had a camshaft sensor error but cleared it and it has not popped up since. Also when breaking gently it grips then let’s go and then grips and then let’s go, the break pedal bounces when that happens as well, also how do I fix the rear window heating. Only 3 heating lines work.

When starting cold it misfires on one cylinder, clearing up and idling properly when it warms up a bit (i.e. not ~90 degrees, just when its a bit warmer so still in the temperature-controlled fuelling schedule). This problem went away totally when the plugs and leads were changed a few hundred miles ago - it started on a
moshiaiz posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi, I have a Polo 6R 2013 with 1.2 TSI 105HP (CBZ) engine. I have a weird knocking/ticking noise especially on cold starts. It started around 2016... about 2-3 years after getting the car. You can hear it here between 0:03-0:04: Sometimes it lasts for around 1-2 seconds but not more than that. Anyone knows what it is? Thanks.
