  1. Good Afternoon, a very quick question, am I ok to use 5w 30 oil in my 1994 1.0 bready? Cheers, Rich.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Hi, new to the forums seeking advice to solve this major problem. I have a polo 1.2L S60 year 2012 My engine decided to die on me a few days ago and since then it's not been able to crank itself over. Just before it cut out my idle shot all the way up then back down again and then cut out. Error codes P0107 and P0341 came up so I changed the camshaft sensor and map sensor as this would of helped hopefully. But unfortunately not. The car still won't start and also changed the speak plugs but not a single one will ignite. Checked the fuel line
  10. Ive 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 perfect
  11. I've just fitted a GT Camshaft into my 6n engine, 1.4 8v (APQ) Ive set engine to tdc, removed old cam, placed the GT cam in same position with lobes in same direction. Put on the old 6n pulley and it's 4.5 teeth out with the crank pulley still set to tdc. I've read on old posts this is how it should be when it's placed in, but then it times to half a tooth when turned? A bit confused as what that means.. Do I keep it at 4.5 teeth out? Or turn the cam to half a tooth out of the cam timing mark. Thanks.
  12. 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
  13. Hello All, I have a 98' SEAT Arosa 1.0 with engine code AER. with 35,000 miles on the clock (sorry kind of a cut down Polo really) It was a great runner until it was parked up at the side of the house 2 years and 8 months ago. I started it every 6 months or so and ran it for a while with no problems. The Saturday before last I decided to get it back on the road so jump started it and it started first time and settled down to tick over nicely for 20 mins or so until I turned it off. As the battery was knackered I ordered a new one that week (reasonable quality VARTA). This was fitted this wee
  14. Hi all, I have a Polo 1.2 from 2004. I want to replace a part and I cannot find it anywhere. Inside the engine plastic cover, there is a rubber gasket, that is at the connection with the throttle body. Basically this gasket sits on the top of the throttle body. Could you please help to find this part? I looked everywhere, but I couldn't find it. Thanks
  15. Can anyone tell me what the corrugated hose ( metal inside, cardboard outside) that runs from the exhaust manifold round the corner to the air filter? Is called and where I would find a replacement. It is about 2 and a bit inches in diameter thanks in advance
  16. Hi, I'm selling my Polo, I've spent a small fortune on this car and it seems a shame to just bin it, but unfortunately the cost of the repair is worth more than the car. The engine is in great condition (about 120,000 miles) and was rebuilt (professionally) about 8 years ago, since then the cars only done 4,000 miles a year. So, anybody looking for an AFK engine ? Problems 1 - there's a 'revolving' 'flapping' sound coming from the clutch?? When you press the clutch in the sound goes away - but as you drive along and the road speed inc
  17. Recently when cold, my car engine sounds a bit "tappy". It quietens down once warm, and I can only hear it when the engine is revved a little. Sometimes it goes completely. It might be worn tappets. Are they expensive to replace? Is it cheaper to try an oil change?

    1990 mk2 polo

    Hello everyone, My name Dan Hunt, im new to this sceen, this forum and new owner of mk2 vw polo fitted with a 1.1litre engine with a pierburg 1b3 carburetor Ive read a few posts but i havnt found to much that helps me with my problem. So heres the problem. Yesterday i went to drive my polo and started up right away from cold with out a single issue as normal but was fast idling. Then soon as i pressed and release the accelerator the engine revs drop the engine judders a bit and then fights to stay alive but dies. From warmish start it starts up right way without
  19. I'm about to pull the engine on my 84 mk2 breadvan and I'm going to fully rebuild with some gt parts and porting work for fun. Is it worth doing the bottom end too? I was thinking of leaving it. Is there anything engine/not engine related that you guys would recommend I take a look at and replace whilst its out that I might not know about? I can see theres a bunch of full engine gasket sets on ebay... is there a particular one I should go for or will any do. I'd like to work on the gearbox too, again is there anything I can replace in there? which oil does it need
  20. I've done an engine swap in my MK2 bready, the engine "works" but I can't seem to run without the choke on (or slight acceleration). I'm running with a piersburg solex pic 7 carb on a new rubber flange with no air leaks. Without choke it will try to run then cough and die even when the engine is warm. Any ideas on how to get this to idle smoothly.
  21. Hi All. I am getting upset with the issue that I am facing with my car. 1.0 engine petrol manual. After igniting the engine the rev is at approx. 1200 when it was 700. When I press gas to 1550 then release the revs drops to even 600 then jumps back. Mostly it happens on cold engine. Other thing. When I a. On 2nd or 3rd gear with rev on 2500-3000 then put into neutral the engine can switch off. 3 garages could not find the issue. Attached video with rev issue. Thanks. Luk Ps I could not attached video so I upload it. Link here https://youtu.be/oXdHdJ8i62s
  22. Iv had my beloved polo for a few months now..... its slowly getting there. Most recently ive had a leaky head gasket which is costing me a fortune in cardboard for the garage floor😂😂. Gasket was changed before it came into my ownership and not sure whether it was ever torqued down again after settling in. Would anyone have settings the gasket should be torqued to when tightening for the second time? Any help is greatly appreciated :)
  23. Hi... can anyone help I have a 2011 gti when I give it some beans the engine light comes up flashing then goes off again... any Ideas? Thanks
  24. I'm currently running my engine without a thermostat. This doesn't seem to bother the car in any way but I was just wondering if there's anything I should know. Basically the car seemed to randomly get hot a few times for no reason and I suspected a sticking thermostat. The fan works fine and comes on when it should. It's a 1.0 engine with around 50000 miles and most of it looks like it's hardly ever been changed or tampered with so I took the thermostat out and replaced the small amount of lost coolant with a substance called "water" that seems to do the trick, and I have been run
  25. Hello Is BNV engine code a straight swap with AMF engine ? I understand it has different power but apart from that can i remove BNV and put AMF instead. Are there any other alterations required like wiring or turbo? Thanks in advance.
