    Derp's Loon

    Hello! Been a while since I bothered to post on any car forum's or blog anything or really interact with the world online but thats another story , figured I'd stick a post on here and see what I get back. Bought this little mk2 Saloon about 2 year ago and drove it 400 odd mile in the middle of the night with out really looking at it or knowing much about the car - was told some stuff about it which I allways take with a pinch of salt but this time turned out to be true - which is/was nice! First photo is what It looked like when I got it home. Was told, and now can confir

    Ross’s Red coupe s

    Model - Polo coupe s Engine - MH 1272 cc Colour - Tornado red Suspension - Standard Brakes - Standard Wheels - Hockenheim alloys Exterior - Standard After looking for another polo for quite a while I managed to find this little gem. The last owner of this had a white coupe up for sale as a project that I was going to look and, however he had a red coupe s in his drive along with a blue gt. As soon as my eyes landed on this I knew straight away I had to get it. Picked it up fairly locally and off I
  4. Hello. So I have an ABD with GT fueling/ignition I've put back together and it just won't idle. Happens whether the engines hot or cold. I can hold the throttle down and have it at 1500-2000 rpm but any lower and it'll just bog down and die with throttle still open, unless I blip the throttle and hold it at 2000 again to save it. This has allowed me to set the base timing atleast. When I go to set the idle I can't lower the rpm close enough as it'll bog down and cut out so I've held it at 1500 rpm to try that way but the idle screw doesn't seem to be doing anything no m
  5. Hello all. I have VCDS lite and a typical eBay cable which has worked fine on a golf MK4, Fabia MK1 and a Felicia but it refuses to pick my GT ECU, which I'm lead to believe it should? I just get an error message saying port ok, interface not found. Does anyone know of any special settings I need to input for setup? My version of VCDS doesn't list polo 86c's in the list of cars in the OBD2 scan section either, is there a different version for them? Ignition is on too Thanks.
  6. I think the ISV needs a clean, the timing has been checked and idle speed has been set but the idle still doesn't sit right consistently, so I'm looking at cleaning the ISV. It could also be a possible air leak, which I'm slowly ruling out as I'm not finding any sign of a leak as I check with carb cleaner. Can any one give me pointers on this, do you have to remove the inlet manifold and everything else to take off the Idle stabilisation valve? It looks like you can get in the back, is it one bolt or two that hold it in? Any advice appreciated. Thanks
  7. Hi all I have a leak on my gt gearbox from drive shaft I think ? Its definitely not from gear selector rod .Please look at photo. So anyone know the replacement seal I need please. I'm hoping I can do it while box is in as I only have just put engine back in so it would twist my Mellons if I had to take it out again.

    Project Breadvan GT

    Alright guys, not sure how many people check the forums these days? As opposed to facebook etc. Anyway im gonna give this a go and do a build thread ... bare with me! So i picked up this GT swapped bready a couple weeks a go now, its a pretty basic/ standard set up at the mo, only running a non gt 5 speed box. The car was originally a 1l genesis (still registered as). Engine and box swapped in by the lad i got it from. Its far from perfect and needs a fair amount of work doing. I was wanting another weekend car for drives out after i sold my 1.3 genesis a few months a go, and i cou
  9. Hi I think my inline fuel pump is shot on my 1991 gt coupe. The one at the rear of the car. Any direction and help on a replacement please ?
  10. Hi I’m keen to hear others thoughts on this to help me work out what I need to look at. GT 3f fuel pump primes and car runs fine once started. Just when cold and been sat longer than a day it doesn’t start after the first prime, normally 3 primes makes it start first time. I've tested fuel pressure during the cold start, at idle and with vac off the FPR and it’s getting plenty pressure. It’s like it’s getting insufficient fuel after one prime. But then after second attempt it catches and runs fine. Fuel filter is 2 years old. I have a spare FPR but before I sta
  11. Hey everyone:D I sold this mk3 GT on bike carbs a couple of years ago, just seeing if anyone has seen it around lol, looking to purchase her back. Random i know. Roll on the summer goodness!
  12. Hi ive been looking to replace the throttle cable in my mk2f gt but when i started looking i couldnt find one anywhere and was hoping someone would know where to find one or whats best to do. cheers
  13. Hi, When starting the engine from cold and even once it’s warm the car has bad throttle response. The revs die off under throttle and along with this the idle is slightly higher than normal about 1000-1100. The odd thing is, when turning the ignition off/then restarting the engine the problem goes away and it runs without any issues at all. It started out intermittently and now is doing it all the time from cold. I have today checked all the earths and cleaned and lubed them. I have tested the ecu to sensor wiring for continuity and the temp plug, TPS, AFM are all okay. So is there a
  14. Hi I’ve seen some posts referencing a guide to calibrating AFMs but can’t see anything in the FAQ section. Can anyone point me to it for the GT please? thanks
  15. I'm having an issue with my GT engined coupe S. Somehow my starter solenoid has inexplicably came loose from the starter motor and all 3 bolts have been lost! Anyone know what size the bolts are? Look like m5 but iv no idea what length they are. I don't want to have to get another starter just for the bolts.
  16. Hi I'm Looking for correct driveshaft oil seal for mk2f GT gearbox. It's the oil seal on side of gearbox not the gear selector seal. Many thanks.
  17. Hi I’ve had a read of the FAQ and found the diagnostic page useful over the years, but now asking for some advice if anyone else has had the same. The engine has had good quality ignition parts including a genuine VW blue temp sensor about a year ago. The symptoms have been ongoing for longer than this so they aren’t stopping the car from driving but I’m keen to fix them. 1. The idle creeps up to about 1300 or so occasionally, and comes back down eventually. I think this is only when the engine is up to temperature. I’ve tried unplugging the blue temp sensor following the normal proce
  18. Breaking a mk2f 1.3 genesis, it has a gt engine on bike carbs, with the gt gearbox.
  19. A couple of years ago I bought a project. Its a mk1f with a Mk2f GT engine conversion. I say conversion, but barely anything was installed (in the engine bay and to the inside of the car lol), just boxes of engine and interior parts, and a hacked loom. Anyway, I’ve mechanically completed the engine install, with cam and crank timing aligned with markers, and the rotor arm pointing at the cylinder 1 marker on the dizzy. Next thing was the wiring. It has numerous cuts and joins. I’ve used the mk2f Haynes manual and made all the connections. I can get the car to turn over but not start. I ge
  20. Hi everyone, I've got to travel over a to a mk2f (1992) fuel injected polo (G40 actually) and remove the fuel tank. Oviously requires more thought in advance on potential tools needed. Has anyone get any tips. I should be ok undoing the main strap. Its the fuel pipes and how to undo them nicely/cleanly so they can be refitted is what I was worried about So, yer, Any tips, or favourite tools to take would be much appreciated. I have read other threads on CP
  21. Hi all hope you all getting ok in current conditions. On mk2f GT😁 I noticed the the rear back box rubber hangers have almost perished. Only been on a year . Quality wise is there anything better on the market? Many thanks. 😁
  22. My GT converted coupe cut out when I went over a small bump in the road. I thought it was just the fuel pump that had given up as it didn't come on when the ignition was on. I have since traced that back to the ignition live wire. Ie it works when I bridge the ignition live from the wiper motor. I have now discovered that there is no spark. Could the two issues be linked or is it just a coincidence (my luck with polo's 😂)
  23. Does anyone know how much this is lowered by.
  24. I have just bought a mk2f polo breadvan but have found most of the driver side sill is shot and possibly the floor pan. I was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere to buy floor pans for the mk2f as I haven't been able to find any.
  25. The alternator is not charging the battery in my coupe S with a GT engine. When I bought the engine, the seller gave me a brand new alternator (9AR2896G). The mount will need drilled out or the mount itself slaved to suit the top bolt diameter. That's not a problem but the new alternator has a connection which should have a 3 pin plug on one side and a separate spade connector (B+) on the other. Any help with this would be much appreciated. This car is staring to do my head in!
