    Radiator piping/hoses - Polo mk2/mk2f/G40

    Time Left: 1 month and 16 days

    • WANTED
    • USED

    Hi I am after the two hosepipes that connect to the radiator of a Polo Mk2/Mk2f/G40 radiator. If you have one or both, please let me know and desired price. Thanks Nik

    £0.01

  2. So as part of bringing my newly purchased Mk2f Polo up to my level of snuff today I went to replace the thermostat as it was sticking open and never letting the engine get to proper temperatures. A previous owner had evidently ignored the very low torque recommendations for the thermostat cover bolts and and stripped one of the plastic threads in the thermostat body flange. Instead of getting another thermostat body and learning from the mistake they had taken it upon themselves to squeeze silicone sealant all over the flange - a good gob of which was the reason the thermostat was sticking open. The mind boggles. I also went to check the transmission fluid was at the right level as the input selector shaft seal has a very slow leak. Figured it would need a wee top-up but the bloody thing swallowed a litre before dribbling out of the fill hole. God knows how long its been that low. The mind continues to boggle. Moan over!
  3. Is there a lower temperature thermostat available? After hours of on line searching, I found that there is a Meyle G40/60 that is out of stock on chargeddubbs but with no idea what it's opening temperature is. Also I found 056 121 113d which is supposed to be a lower temperature but again no confirmation of the opening temperature. I have been told the stock one opens at 75C. Is this correct? Any help would be appreciated.

    polo GT 1991

    Hello, I have a 1991 polo GT, the red light for the temperature indicator on the dashboard flashes, some times the light flashes when the engine is started from cold, once the light started flashing it stays flashing until the engine is switched off. I looked in the coolant expansion tank the water is mixed with evidence of lots of oil and is a thick brown soup. Also, if i leave the engine running steam comes from the expansion tank and the car boils over, the electric radiator fan does not cut in cooling the engine like it use to. When the engine is overheating, the top radiator hose is hot to touch, the bottom radiator hose is relatively cold to touch, even when the engine is overheating and steam is coming out of the expansion tank the radiator and bottom hose does not get very hot. The internal heater does not blow out hot air when the engine is overheating. I think the problem could be the thermostat and the head gasket, can anyone give advice?
  5. Hi what's quickest way of draining a cooling system? Is there a sort of plug near radiator maybe? Thanks tom
