  1. Hi, I've had this issue for a while, and I've been active on the polo group on facebook whilst trying to figure out this issue. I'll provide a timeline for my issue. 1. I changed timing belt, car started and I had no engine jerk. Car has always been difficult to start and nothing changed after changing the timing belt. 2. After around 2-3000km and 2 months, the car dies on the highway in the middle of a tunnel. After a couple of days with fiddling with vacuum lines, spark plugs, fuel and other fault seeking methods, I discovered that the ECU (multipoint Jetronic) h
  2. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: I know it's better to install another engine, but that's not the idea of this project, I want to get the most out of this engine because I like 1.4s. 6N is my dream platform, I like everything in it! -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3. Hi is there by any chance a way to get my hands on a new exhaust manifold for my polo 86c ? (1984) Are there any manifolds from other engines that fit?
  4. Hope I'm not repeating a question already asked, but is the intelt manifold supposed to be held onto the engine head with studs & nuts,, or with bolts? Mine has two studs with nuts and 3 bolts. I have tried looking online for photos/posts and had no luck. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi there, Looking for some help when it comes to timing a GTI engine. As it stands I have GTi engine which I have replace the timing belt on. Now I'm not 100% confident that the engine timing is correct after reading from other source you need specific tools. So instead of potentially damaging the engine I want to start from scratch as if I don't know what position the cams or crank is in. What I want to know is what positions the cams and crank should be in and what tools if any are required to get the timing right. Apologies if this topic already exists but I couldn't find it. Th
  6. Hi All, I’ve been having an issue with my Mk5 1.6 TDI diesel (2010 plate, approx. 83000 miles) for a few weeks now, and several garages have been unable to solve it. I bought the car from a national used car chain 7 months ago, but unfortunately it’s now out of warranty. I got a flashing engine management light on my dash about 3 weeks ago, which was followed by a loss of power to the engine - it could still run and cruise at 30-40mph, but accelerating past ~40mph, and accelerating away from lights was noticeably slower. I took it to a local garage who reset
  7. Good afternoon guys. I have a problem with my 6n2 gti. The problem is everytime I'm accelerate and changing gear the rev gauge going up a bit before it's falling back and the car just feel slow. I have a fault code: p1340 crankshaft/camshaft position sensor incorrect allocation. Does anyone knows what this can be? Thank you for any help
  8. Hi Do anyone know where the Knock sensor are for my 2014 Vw polo tsi 1.2 highline dsg 81kw.

    1.4 16v

    I currently have a 1.4 16v 75bhp 6n2 but looking to replace the engine, I believe mine is a AUA but the one I am looking at putting instead is a different engine code but is from a 6n2 and is also a 1.4 16V would it still be plug and play or will it not work? Cheers for the help
  10. Hey guys, i'm fairly new to the VW scene, (excuse me if i make any mistakes, im not a native speaker), so back to the point, I've got my AEE engine rebuilt last summer, and after 320k kms it was a breeze to drive it, but im getting used to it, so im planning to shoot for lets say a 100 hp, or something near to that, i have some plans, but yeah, you guys know way more than me so, my weak ass plans are: - porting the head, with bigger valves - a bit more agrssive camshaft - custom intake, with the 1.4 16vs throttle body (as far as i remember the 1.6 aee has a 45, and the
  11. Hey all While on the lift in the garage, I saw this leak from an aft engine oil connector. What the name of it? I guess I'll need a seal replacement but I want to see an exploded view diagram before taking it apart... Will it be easier during an upcoming oil change? Thanks in advance
  12. Is it possible to get more out of my VW polo 1991 1ltr engine. ? Or do I just have to live it ? It's so slow . I don't really want to change the engine as I already swoped it out a few years ago like for like etc. Thanks.

    Buying a late 1980s Polo

    All three of my kids learned to drive in Polos - three cars in total. I got to like these cars very much. I am therefore forsaking my MGB GT and seeking a 1988 or 1989 Polo, preferably the so-called bread van. I don’t want to invite a huge response from members, but any advice on what to look for would be very welcome. In particular, where to look for serious rust issues, but also any other known problem areas. Thanks in advance. Charlie
  14. Good Afternoon, a very quick question, am I ok to use 5w 30 oil in my 1994 1.0 bready? Cheers, Rich.
  15. Trying to find the engine number location on the engine of my Mk2. Anyone know where it is? Thanks
  16. seen some older threads where folk have converted a 3f into a 1600cc with a AEE engine , is there any alternate codes that i could look for ?
  17. Hello. I currently have an AFH engine laying around. I want to know if the head is compatible with the AGG engine block. Plus I wish to know if the AGG block can be hooked up onto a longitudinal trans from an audi a4 (without any conversion plate). PS: Planning to put one ebay gt45 onto this beauty (Can it take 2bar with stock internals?).
  18. Hey there again. Info: -6n2 Polo -AHW Engine (1.4L 16v) -Automatic transmission Problems: -Very slowly accelerates towards 1500rpm. -Everytime I press or release the brake it goes to 2200+ rpm. -Everytime I change gears (R or D) the car kinda "hits". Story/What I have done: Part 1. Ok so at home there is this 6n2 Polo since 2002. Everything was fine until 10+ years ago when it started to show a problem: the transmission would hit hard every time you changed gears (as seen in this video: https://youtu.be/Xvj2W9wDnS4). We called a mechanic but he didn't s
  19. Reaching out to all you knowledgeable people! I’m slowly obtaining parts for my AAU to NZ engine conversion that is imminent and am struggling to obtain an inlet manifold and throttle body for the NZ unit, my question is,will an AAV manifold & throttle body work? These parts seem a lot more accessible than the NZ equivalent, would it also just be a plug and play from the old AAU as researching the NZ a bit more tells me that it’s a multi point fuel injection! any advice on this would be much appreciated as wouldn’t mind going a bit faster soon! Rich.
  20. Hi all, I’ve recently purchased an NZ 1.3 with a 5 speed 8P gearbox and am looking to change it out for the 1.0 AAU lump that’s in my 94 bready at the moment. The NZ unit I have has only done 45,000 miles so apart from doing the obvious (cambelt/water pump etc) while the engine is out of the car would you guys recommend any other checks/replacements? Unfortunately the NZ didn’t come with inlet/exhaust manifolds and I was wondering if I can use the existing set up I have from my AAU engine or will the fuelling/mixture be all over the place? Also I’m after a 5 speed gearbox mount for my 8P box s

    Burnt Exhaust Valves

    Here we go again! Lost whole lot when tried to make my pics smaller, so to cut to chase removed cylinder head, as you'll see burnt valves, what caused it? Common fault with 1.2 Cylinder MK7 engines? Been told supermarket fuel, servo had gone, result of timing chain stretch? Chain was changed and think was missfiring before... The final diagnosis was leak test.... Didn't seem to find prob when did compression test... Note bolts can seize and thread will either need re tapped or thread insert with special tools needed... Videos on you tube... I had 1.4 polo 2001 plate, never had this problem.. T
  22. Hello, Before lock down my polo 6n1 1.4 cl would not start. I tried it a few days later and it started but when going 70 mph for a few minutes all of a sudden I would loose acceleration for about 10/15 seconds then it would kick back in again, I have checked that there was a spark from the spark plugs (plugs, leads, rotor arm, dizzy cap fairly new), checked for any faults and the only fault was the lambda sensor so I replaced that but still N/G. I then changed the fuel filter and fuel pump and got the injectors cleaned but it still the same. I have just tried changing the MAF sensor and thrott
  23. Hi guys, I got my lovely 93 Coupe a year ago, it ran great until May, it's my daily driver and have done over 4k in it but now it's being a bit of a diva and I can't figure out what's wrong. The main issue is that it won't always fire (it's turning over), it's intermittent, it'll be fine for days then play up, then if I leave it for 30mins it might start (or not). I replaced the dizzy cap, rotor arm, plugs, ht leads, none of which sorted it so it's had a new coil, which seemed to fix it, but after three days I was leaving work and at the first point the revs
  24. I appreciate that this probably isn't normal fodder for the forum so please bear with me. My daughter , god bless her, decided that the dipstick was an unnecessary accessory and although no oil registered on the dipstick it really wasn't a problem. So after a 10 mile journey to the beach and back the cam now sounds like a machine gun. The Polo is a 2006 1.2 6v and admittedly drank oil like a thirsty glass blower, didn't leak it nor did it throw out clouds of blue smoke? The upshot is I have located a car with a 12v engine and wondered would an engine swap be viable and what would it entai
  25. Hi everyone, first post so go easy on me lol. Recently acquired a 1990 1.0 breadvan as a cheap runaround, been sorting through it's issues one at a time and have reached a sticking point. So when I got it cold starts were a struggle and a high idle when warm, I started with the basic checks and found it had an air leak at the carb flange (flange itself looks fairly new and ok, but there's no paper gasket between the carb and flange - I'm assuming it should have one?) So anyway, I literally took the air intake off, undid the 2 bolts holding the carb on and pu
