BoristheBreadvan posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustIve got a mk2 1.3 1990 polo In the 6 months of ownership used daily and never had a problem before now, at the start of lockdown she was sat on the drive for 4-5 weeks (un started) while i sorted some rust on the F valence + painted the engine bay, after that on the first drive she just cut out twice but started again, the next day i drove about 11 miles same thing happened at the start of the drive, on the way back (halfway up a hill ! ) she died, this time would only restart if left for 5 and would then die after a minute ( which is still where i am at now ) oddly when running she is perfectly normal.... since i have rebuilt the carb 2 times (Webber 32/34 DMTR) replaced the pump diaphragm on the carb, cleared the fuel lines and replaced the filter plenty of fuel is getting to carb now for sure !, jets all clear and correct, i originally assumed it was fuel/carb related as before it died a few time you could keep it alive for a few seconds longer with the choke fully engaged... after another fiddle today with no success i am truly baffled and starting to get pi$%ed off with it, any suggestions would be very very welcome George
Hi, Apologies for my lack of knowledge but I’m literally a novice when it comes to cars so any help would be great. I own a 2010 polo which I bought from a dealer 2 weeks ago - 139000 km on the clock. Drives fine for a week until last week when my partner is driving to work, it showed a solid orange power steering wheel on the dash and cut out twice in in a matter of minutes when she turned a 2 corners. Since then it’s been fine for a few days, no warning lights in the dash or any worrying symptoms. i just got in the car then and turned it round in 1st when the engine cut out and it rolled to a stop. I restarted the car with no issues, but I don’t want it to happen again so wondered what the issue could be? I’m suspecting the battery or alternator so getting these checked tomorrow, but has this happened to anyone before? thanks in advance, Dan.
