  1. Hi again. So after chatting on here and trying to solve the problems on starting after refuelling. I’ve got some questions and hope someone can help out!?!! 🙂 So each time I refuel I have problems starting. Sometimes it happens when it’s warm and I’ve turned it off and tried to start again a short time after. Once it does fire up I get a really rich smell with a cloud of light smoke out the back. Someone said it sounds like the pressure regulator. Because I’ve established that the fuel pump is working properly. Any one else had issues like this? Please help. G

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Need to free up some funds so my g40 engine is up for sale. Bought it it last year some time when it came up for sale but didn’t intend to use it straight away so I’ve never had it fitted. Doesn't come with any history and obviously I can’t gaurantee it’ll run but I have no reason to think it won’t. It turns over freely. Comes with all the ancillaries, both manifolds, ATV gearbox, ecu, loom, intercooler, some boost pipework, airbox and downpipe. Doesnt come with a charger as I was going to turbo it. Any questions just ask.

    86c saloon

    Hi guys need a bit of advice I have a 1986 86c polo saloon 1043 I have recently purchased a 1272 2g engine just wondering what the best recommended carb would be
  7. Hi all I have recently brought a 1992 polo coupe 1.0l 4 speed the issue i have with it is that when i turn it over it starts to surge and then will rev up to about 3000 revs and sit there then go back down. Any ideas what this could be?
  8. Since i bought my 6N 1.4 8v the expansion tank has been a pretty uniform shade of pink as if G12 has dried all around it, making it impossible to tell the level. I've never thought much of it as the engine seems to cool pretty well (never really goes over 80/90c even on 300 mile motorway trips) and I can see some coolant when i open the filler cap and look into the tank. What are your thoughts on this? Any way to clean the tank? Am i in trouble? Bought a bottle of G12 for some daft price a few months ago for this purpose but has since slipped my mind. Cheers!
  9. Hello everyone! I've had quite the adventure in the past two years driving this car. It's quite the old car, but I kind of like the character these have. Problems pop up, and go away over time, most of them ignorable, but this one was a nasty surprise. I drive 1995 Ibiza 6K with a 1.4 8v ABD. I know, I know, it's not a Polo 6N but they're very similar so I was hoping if someone would help me here. All of the other SEAT-related forums seem to be just related to the newest cars or just downright dead. No help whatsoever. :/ I once again apologize for it not being a Polo, I just can't find anyone with this specific problem. What happened prior to the problem: The other day, the weather is damp, and the car started oscillating it's revs in a rhythmic way between 750 and 1200 rpm (idle and warm up revs), it is about to stall, but then it gives itself some throttle and goes to 1200 but then stalls to about 750 and throttles itself again until I intervene with a quick blip of the throttle and it goes away. It was odd, and enough to get my attention. After about a month, I decided to reset my ECU, so I disconnect the battery overnight and after 24 hrs I reconnect it and start the car. I let it run and it got down to 750. 10 minutes later, down the road, I stop my car at a stoplight, and it starts oscillating again, I blip the throttle, and it just revs itself to redline! It does not take any throttle input anymore, and I just cut the ignition. I start it up again, and it revs itself again to redline. I was afraid to dump the clutch to see if it would keep going, but I pushed the car to the side of the road and tried to see what was going on. The mechanic replaces the throttle actuator, and it went away for 15 minutes. Second replacement, 600RPM and it was away for 10 minutes, then the 3rd one was okay for 3 weeks. Now, I was having some short-lived fun, where I used full throttle, the car pulled no problem from 2000rpm to 5000rpm. And 2 minutes after that, at a carpark it's idle went from 750 to 1000, and when I tried parking, it again went to redline, same problem, whatever I try (it was wet outside again). When I turn the ignition on, the butterfly valve is wide open, is it supposed to be like that? I've searched high and low for answers, from one forum to the next, 2003 to 2015, I've learned how Monomotronic/Jetronic is supposed to work, what inputs it takes in, how it operates and whatnot. My mechanic has a parts car, so I can get replacements right away, I just don't want to burn a hole in my pocket (it's charred as it is :/) The car sits for 3-5 hrs and the problem goes away, but I'm afraid to make any longer journey in it. Can the actuator even push the throttle body all the way to wide-open? Could the ECU be knackered? I understand that all it takes is a small short circuit between the contacts on the ECU and the actuator goes out all the way, but W.O.T.? No way. I'm lucky it's not an automatic. If anyone can help me narrow down the possible problems, I would be very grateful! I have heaps more info I got from observation research of the car, but no-one had a W.O.T. problem like I do. P.S. The MPG was usually 26, but during winter it drops to 14. Any help with that would be good as well!
  10. Hello im new here :) I want to fit a cone filter with pipes to my 1.2 12V but unsure on how to do this. If the air filter was separate I would find this easier to do but where is the MAF? what are the 2 hoses connected to the engine cover? Do I need them? Any help will be appreciated thanks!
  11. Hi, apologies if this is the wrong section of the forum (im new to posting here, long time lurker) i have a polo 9n 1.2 3 cylinder, i have heard that it is possible to swap the throttle bodies from that of a mk4 golf, is there a specific engine size from the golf that i need to get it from or will they all fit, i dont know if the golfs use a universal size or they change with engine size which i assume, any help will be appreciated. also i have had trouble of finding exhaust systems that will fit the car, i have a quote of 150 to get a custom backbox made by hand, however is there any full catback systems that you guys use on your polo's many thanks,
  12. Hi everyone. First post on here. I'm having some problems with my 1991 mk2f coupe. I got it on the road about a month ago and its been driving ok up until a long drive down to bristol in the pouring rain (2.5 hours). It runs great when idling with no pressure on the accelerator, but as soon as i touch it slightly, it starts to splutter and sounds like its misfiring. Also doesn't run great when driving around, especially when engine breaking and when the revs lower a bit, sometimes wants to stall and judders a bit but rarely does actually stall. I think it has something to do with airflow/fuel injection/mixture as it only happens at the slightest pressure on the accelerator. maybe electronics from the wet? Dodgy wet or broken wire somewhere? My engine is a 1litre single point injection. It was taken out of a slightly older polo with only 1 oil pressure sensor, the original engine had two. Thats another story though. Don't think this is related though as it ran fine for the first few weeks. I'm new to cars by the way, but learning. Here's what I've done to try and fix the problem so far, after research online and asking around on the polo facebook group. Checked all HT leads for water, there was a bit in the connection on the ignition coil but drying it didn't seem to change anything. What temperature is my engine supposed to run at? its running at about 70 but i thought it was supposed to be higher? it never goes higher than this. anyway i though it might be faulty so changed both black and blue temp sensors. with no change really. I've replaced the lamda sensor. Gonna get a friend to check timing out today but i dunno it its that, as it idles without misfiring. Any ideas on what to try next? before i take it to the garage as a last resort. Cheers!
  13. hi all I've just acquired a 91 polo with only 3k miles. its mint but the oil light and coolant warning lights stay on after its started. no knocks or other funny noises I think that its probably sensors from lack of use - any thoughts? cheers
  14. Hi guys i know iv been quiet on here for a very long time sins i sold my last polo which i dropped the GT engine in but now im back with a question for the guru's here as i have found a lot of conflicting information scattered about the internet regarding this. First of all let me start out by saying im looking at doing about 3 different engine conversions at the moment and dont want to waste my time / effort on the polo if its not going to work anyway as i have a e36 BMW to take a 318i 8v engine out of and put a 318is 16v stroked engine in for definite. Along with that i may be helping a mate of mine convert his k10 micra 1.2 to a 1.6 from a almera. Which leaves me with 2 possible engine swaps which only 1 of can be done. Iv got a 1.6 AEE MPI engine which has some kind of performance cam sat on my garage floor at the moment which came from a 1996 mk3 golf which i stripped kept the engine as i know the AEE is known as a fairly tune able engine with someone pushing one to 240BHP anyway once i had a better look at it i realized it looked a lot like the AAV / 3F engines i had pulled out / put in my old polo. Then as luck would have it again a MK2F came up for sale locally and i managed to swap a BMW e36 vader full interior for it which worked out in the sellers favor anyway as he wanted £450 for the mk2f and he sold the vader interior for £750 which in my opinion is cheap still as iv seen vader interior sell for £1500+ But anyway i then started searching to see if this AEE would fit the mk2f i just acquired turns i google can't seem to find me a definite answer the closest iv got to an answer is this thread on club polo: https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/13935-converting-a-gt-to-a-14-and-16/?page=7&tab=comments#comment-1168668 Which works out well for me as i still have the mk3 golf this engine came from and i have a complete mk2f with a 1.0 AAU in which has just had a new clutch by my understanding if i fit the following parts to the AEE from the AAU it should fit: flywheel clutch starter (or possibly a slimline starter off a 1994) gearbox (wouldn't use the 4 speed off the 1.0 would use my old AAV 5spd box which only has 65k miles on it which would mean i need a 5spd gearbox mount for a mk2f) alternator pulley crank pulley bit of shaving of metal and plastic and jobs a gooden Obviously the rest of that guide i can disregard as im not converting it to a GT im just getting the AEE to fit and i have a complete engine not just a bare engine so i have the inlet manifold and everything with the engine. however im pretty sure there is going to wiring issues getting the AEE's loom to mate up with the mk2f loom and also the AAU is SPI so would need a better fuel pump for the AEE same as when i went from AAV to 3F on my old polo If for some reason someone knows why this won't work please let me know and i will just dump this AEE in another mk3 golf that has a 1.8 ADZ engine but its slow and sluggish compared to this AEE Also on another note the golf with the AEE in came with a clutch kit as the clutch had almost gone (bite right at the top of the pedal and a little slip) now luckily my mk2f had just had a new clutch before i got it but i have looked it up online and the AEE clutch is 24 tooth 200mm and the mk2f uses a 24 tooth 190mm clutch i know its a long shot but who reckons the AEE clutch disc 200mm will fit inside the mk2f 190mm pressure plate? and work as i read from somewhere the mk2f clutches don't handle the AEE power very well and burn out fast so kinda hoping if for some chance the AEE clutch disc fits the mk2f pressure plate that the extra 10mm diameter will help it cope with the power better. Thanks everyone
  15. Hi I own a 95 Polo and recently noticed something strange with my oil cap, it has some creamy looking substance on the side that sits inside the engine and I have had mixed opinions of what it is for example I first got told I needed a new head gasket because water was leaking I then asked someone else and they said where my car was sat for a year it was just condensation in the engine and I just needed to leave my car running for a while I then tried that and it is still like it, do I need to run it for longer or do I need a new head gasket some help would be appreciated,

  17. Hi everyone, i need to know wether the 1.1 golf engine is the same as the 1.1 polo engine? Thanks
  18. Morning all! I was convinced my 16v was the 75bhp model, ( i thought all 6n2's were) however I have been reading that some 6n2's did in fact come with the 100bhp engine. Visually what are the differences? Also is it stamped on the engine at all? If so where?
  19. Can any one point me in the right direction of the temp sensor that controls the guage on a 1.4 16v 6n2 please
  20. MK3 Polo coupe breaking. Has a 16v AFH in it which runs and had fresh timing, waterpump, plugs, etc. Lowered on 70mm springs and shocks with some white ford multispoke wheels which with the adapters are pretty wide. Has the ARB bush kit (The same ones as the G-Lader ones) which have never seen the tarmac. Need gone ASAP, will post pictures later. Any parts needed please shout me!
  21. Hi all, ive got a 1990 H reg breadvan, its been sitting for a while, started it yesterday to let it charge the battery, just idling for a few minutes, and it started making a loud tappet noise which got louder with the oil fill cap removed , pulled off the cam cover, found some scoring and maybe a flat spot on one of the lobes, some metal shavings were in the oil around the cam and on the dipstick. i put oil directly on the lobes, cover back on and started it, was perfectly normal for about 10 seconds then it rattled again the oil light doesnt come on or anything like that so im thinking it has oil pressure? it never made any noise like that before, had the local garage do a full service on it a month ago, its done about 50 miles since then, no problems then either it did have a new cambelt, 10w40 synthetic oil and a filter but its still quite sooty and dirty looking the car also runs rough at low engine speeds with no vacuum leaks or timing issues or anything as far as me or the garage can tell how do i stop it? ive got some 20w50 in the shed, will that work temporarily or am i looking at a new cam and tappets or a new engine? Cheers Harry
  22. Hello everyone, I'm wondering if some one could give me some info on this engine? the 1.1 engine, first off what cars did this come in? 2: whats the piston size? 3: whats the piston stroke? 4:what materials is it made from? (block and head) 5: engine code? 6: will the polo gt head bolt straight on? 7: do the g40 rods fit with the standard crank off the 1043cc? 8: what bits make the engine a 1100 rather than the 1.0 (1043)? Thanks in advance!
  23. Hi, The two Polos in question are: 1. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AHW engine, cable throttle - okay working, probably a bit under-powered, will check cylinder compression - normal AC - 2 doors 2. 6N2 2000 1.4 75hp AUA engine, wired throttle - engine is bust - overheated because of oil pump failure. - climatronic - 4 doors I'm still considering other options, but the best at the moment seems to be to combine the two into 1 fully working Polo, with the 4 doors Polo as the base. The main question is: "Is the engine swap plug and play?" - this concerns only the engine unit, with everything immediately attached - water pump, pulleys, alternator. This is to put the AHW engine instead of the AUA. Should I swap it with the gearbox or there is no need?
  24. Hi, I'm after some pointers on why our 1999 1.4 6N1 Auto engine wont start. It initially stalled when my daughter was reversing off her drive. Neither she, nor the Green Flag callout could jump start it, and in the process, the starter motor was burnt out. I have now replaced the starter, but have not yet managed to get the car running. It spins over OK with the new starter, but does not fell like it wants to run. The ignition side seems OK, as I have checked that each plug is sparking, however I'm not sure how to check if fuel is getting through to the fuel rail. or if the fuel pump is running OK. Any thoughts on how to check these, as it's not really covered within the Haynes manual? Also, anything else I should check? Any help appreciated - Many thanks.

    1.8T in 9N or 9N3

    Did anyone ever put a 1.8T engine in a 9N3 or 9N? Also, did anyone ever put a 9N/9N3 on air ride suspension?
