Hello everyone! I'm having some mysterious issues with my car after the swap. I swapped everything, it has the GTI fuel pump, but still has a rough idle when cold, and poor perfomance even when the engine is at it's operation temp, and it cranks for 3-4, even 5 secs before it starts the engine.It struggles at higher rpms, and has a top speed of 150 km/h instead of 200 km/h. I replaced almost every sensor I could, it's definitely not the lambda sensor, or the crankshadt pos. sensor. Even replaced the coolant temp sensor. I noticed that I have a grey 167 fuel pump relay with 4 legs instead of a black 410 with 8 legs. The guy who made the wiring, didn't notice the different relay. Can this be the cause of my problem? Or could the VVT actuator failure cause this? Thanks for the help!
Okay so I've looked pretty extensively but can't find anything definitive- forgive me if this has already been answered somewhere! I'm looking to fit an enclosed induction kit on my Polo 1.4 8v MPI and I'm a little confused about the two pipes from the engine cover that will be loose when I remove the cover (I don't really want to be cutting it, so I can just fit it back on as standard easily if necessary). I haven't got the *best* technical knowledge, but from what I can see you need to catch the oily air from the crank case breather pipe (using a filter or a catch tank) and then apply a non-return valve to the smaller vacuum hose. So my first question (perhaps a stupid one) is this: which direction should the one-way valve go on the smaller hose? I understand it's to regulate interior pressure, so surely air going out is good (as a release)? But what if the interior pressure is too *low*? Second question; I'm guessing the crank case breather needs to be filtered so it's not a good idea to have it meet the induction kit piping *after* the filter but before the throttle body (or oil will just go straight in). What would you recommend as a solution? Those mini breathers seem like they would just get full of oil in no time...
Guys I need some help; I have found that I require a new crank shaft position sensor on my 6n2's AUD engine.Does anyone know where it is located, how to get to it and how to remove it? Any Advice on where I could get one that is of good quality would also be appreciated along with any pictures that could help describe its location Cheers, Luke
