  1. My dipstick levels have always been up and down for the past 4 years - can a blocked crankcase breather cause this? Always checked when car is level. Also, I've always run the dipstick to show the hatched area upwards when pulled out, but when inserted 'upside-down' the level shows halfway down in comparison - a big difference to get right: what's the correct orientation? (I keep it topped up but have recently been running a little lower in case I'm unknowingly overfilling - but then it runs noisy. It's currently about 5-7mm over the hatched area and runs fine - might be overfilled but presumed inaccurate..)

    For sale is my 1993 mk2f, the interior is completely genuine apart from an mp3 head unit, it is in great condition. It has 13 inch starmag alloys, they are not perfect but they are not in need of a refurb. The engine is a 1.3GT on twin gsx600 bike carbs, the gearbox is from the GT as well. The body work is in fair condition, no major rust and I've recently welded the inner and outer sills and the rear wheel arch. I've got a few spares to go with it. Just been through an MOT with no advisories, fully polybushed front end with powerflex bushes. Any questions feel free to ask. Open to offers.

    Hi, for sale is my 1994 VW Polo Mk2f. It has done 65k genuine miles (have some old Mot's and service receipts that can help verify this). I have 2 keys, one genuine, and the original VW handbook with the booklets inside. The car has been well maintained and is in extremely good condition for a 24 year old car! It has genuine BBS RA's off of a G40 that were professionally acid dipped and refurbished. This has been such a fun car to own ane drive. As my first car I couldn't have wished for anything more fun, reliable and unique to drive. I constantly got remarks about how nice the car was and how unique also. These are getting rare now and finding one with low mileage and clean bodywork is almost impossible! The car has already had the dreaded fuel tank recently so should be fine for at least a few years to come. The car had a full service including water pump and head gasket, coolant, brake fluid, cambelt, filters and oil in April 2017 along with brakes and suspension and the engine work. It also had a new clutch and clutch cable. It's had replacement wheel bearings, track rod ends and CV joints also. The car has had the following modifications: Full engine conversion from a standard 45hp 1.0l engine to a 1.3l MPI engine out of a Polo Mk2f GT. Standard these engines push out 75hp. I believe the engine is on sub 100k but I have no proof. I then bought a ported and polished cylinder head, believed to be on 60k miles (again no proof). I had the ported head sent off and had the head skimmed, pressure tested, valve guides ground down and valves reseated at Modus engineering in Tunbridge Wells. I then built up the engine with a fast road camshaft from Newman cams. The engine now has uprated Magnecor red HT leads, a Powerflow performance panel filter and a PoloPerformanceParts stage 2 ECU chip (7200rpm limiter increase). The car is believed to be pushing out at least 100hp which in a sub 800kg car is enough to have some fun! I do still have the standard ECU chip if you wish to go back to standard. Since the engine work the car has covered around 10k miles. To support the engine enhancements, I bought all new OE equivalent shock absorbers and coil springs all round. I also polybushed the front suspension components, and replaced the rubber anti-roll bar bushes with nylon blocks. This makes the car feel firm to drive and handles amazingly. The car has also had decent brakes all round. In the interior I have changed the door cards to incredibly rare ones with speaker pods built in. I have then fitted JBL 6.5" speakers with tweeters higher up the door card. This has been wired in properly with all the wires behind the dash and only a small piece is visible between the door and the dash. The seats are the dark grey ones with the rainbow coloured Volkswagen writing on them which I massively prefer to the Fox seats. I have changed the stereo to a Sony bluetooth music and possibly phone also. I have ran subwoofer wires to the back of the car which work fine, however the sub and amp are not included in the sale. The boot has a carpeted wooden false floor for supporting the subwoofer as the standard boot floor is very weak and couldn't really support anything. There is still the spare wheel underneath this. I have changed the clocks in the dash to the better GT clocks so a rev counter is there. I have also fitted a Momo leather gear stick and matching steering wheel with a genuine Momo boss. I also bought carpet floor mats as it didn't have any and I prefer them to the genuine rubber ones. I have also wired in a cigarette lighter so I could charge my phone or use a satnav while driving. On the exterior I have made a few subtle changes. I sprayed the VW grill badge and boot badges black, replaced the orange rear lights for genuine factory smoked lights, clear front and side indicators with chrome bulbs and now have body coloured door handle inserts. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money on this car and will be sad to see it go. Would make a perfect first car as it did for me, with cheap insurance even with no black box. The engine modification is not declared with the DVLA, however I do have the engine number saved so if you wish to officially register the change in engine capacity, you are able to. Sadly, there are a few minor issues and I will try to be as honest as possible (I am quite particular so some of these might not even affect you at all): - There is a small oil leak from the head. I believe it's where I put the head gasket on, some dirt might have got trapped and allows small amounts of oil to sweat out the engine. I have been topping the oil up every now and then. - There are some scrapes down the passenger side. I have tried to picture the damage to the passenger side as it's the worst area. Some small scrapes mainly on the door and rear arch. Also the drivers door has has a dent pulled out at some point. - There is some sort of sticker residue on the b pillers that I can't get off easily. (not put that much effort in. Just used autoglym tar and glue, not much happened so I left it alone.) - Where I fitted the clocks, the wiring loom on the back of them is wrong, so occasionally the coolant light flashes, when the coolant level and temperature are perfectly normal. Usually turning the car off and on again fixes this. - The sunroof leaked water and had been sealed up when I bought the car. I changed the seal and it still leaked water so I put enough sealant to stop water dripping on me while driving. If this bothers you, a new sunroof or new sealant applied neatly would work. If someone takes as good care as I and the previous owners have, it will have many years of life left and is starting to become an appreciating retro cool car. Currently it is running a PPP stainless 4 branch manifold and full PPP stainless decat exhaust system. If this is going with the car, an additional cost of £250 will need to be added on the the asking price of £1250. To arrange a viewing/test drive please TEXT 07383417526 (will NOT answer calls as I work unsociable hours and may be asleep or working when you call). Car will be available to drive away from the 10th August.

  16. Hi all easy one for you I hope. What should a mk2f GT idle at ?
  17. This weekends bilit - hamber clay bar and polish and wax. Took about 3h but still have black trim that need attention etc.
  18. So i have just swapped over the servo on my 91 GT, the servo was being dodgy and removing the old one revealed some major rust had taken hold on it. Anyway i've fitted a replacement servo, taken off a 2f, i haven't adjusted anything on this new servo. My car is running a rear disc setup, with VW2 fronts and a 22mm master cylinder, this has all been fitted for a couple of years and been working perfectly. With the new servo fitted, the brake pedal sits lower than the clutch pedal (they used to sit level), and the point at which the pedal goes solid is also lower. These i can live with, but the pedals new position is too low to switch off the brake lights, so they stay permanently on. I have taken apart the old servo, and the only adjustment i can see is on the master cylinder side, which would change the bite point, but not where the pedal sits at rest. Being honest i'm stumped, its like its not seated correctly on the bulkhead, but the three mounting bolts are tight, look even and none of it looks crooked. I have released the master from the servo to check its not that, and the pedal indeed is still incorrect with no master. I can only think i'll have to strip it off again and compare with the old servo/check its seating. But before i do, anyone have any bright ideas? Thanks guys

    Hi from Bolton

    Hi,New to the forum.I have just purchased a 1991 Polo GT. I am reliving my youth having owned a 1993 coupe Genesis then moved on to a GT back in the early 90's! Not got it started yet so not sure if I've missed it or not...
  20. Hi my mk2f 1ltr breadvan has a problem . Did not start yesterday so i check battery and it was flat as first i thought i left lights on or radio but i never . So i put in new battery and fired up straight away but i noticed after i switched of ignition off i could still here fuel pump running not sure why so i switched it back on ignition and it stopped. I repeated the on off with ignition and same thing happened fuel pump still running after i turned off the till ignition again . So i assume this is why i had a flat battery as its was still doing its thing after i switch car off and going into the house , hence flat battery next day. Advice please. Many thanks.
  21. Hi so over the weekend i managed to fit my 4-2-1 branch manifold on my gt and imasaf full exhaust system from Germany and i must say its a vast improvement . So I'm looking on advice on what other improvements i can make ? Advice is welcome please. Is it advisable that i use exhaust tape what ever its called on the 4-2-1 manifold ? might be difficult now its in but sure i can manage if needed. Thank you.
  22. abd engine that previously ran fine on carb fitted all 3f mpi bits except the cam starts from cold and sounds normal , quickly starts to sound rough with a unhappy idle , with the blue sender undone it runs worse ive attempted to set up the timing but unsure if the rough idle effects it..above idle it sounds better and drives semi okay when hot it will not restart - after one hour it starts again tried 2x temp senders , new coil , ecu and (correct)dizzy works on my mates gt ,car has no o2 sensor at present, fuel pumps are running when it refuses to hot start ive about reached the end of my knowledge and unsure what to do now

    GT wannabe

    Hi everyone! I became a owner of some fine looking machine. It cost me 500 euros with two sets of wheels with winter and summer tires on them, and two original keys with alarm, GT interior with few parts missing, service book almost like new, custom made exhaust and 1.3 AAU engine inside. Whole car was repainted but I noticed rust in the few places but for that price I must do something myself I have bought third set of wheels, some BBS copy ACT wheel. 7.5J 15, ET 38. It fits perfectly with some yokohama 195/45 tires. I still need to get the car down for a bit and repaint those wheels. Here are some pics of the car.

    Seeking my old Mk2f

    Hi guys and girls I'm hoping someone can help me. I sold my Mk2f polo back in late 2016/ early 2017. It was FOX coupe in blue that was originally 1.0 but I converted it to a 1.3 GT engine with some mods, Piper Cam, Bigger intake and a few other mods. I'm sure the guy who bought it off me was from eBay by the name of George. I'd love to have that car back as it was one of the nicest I have driven. If anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction I would be very greatful, Maybe even some pint money! If you could ask around any groups or friends that break polo's etc The REG is L468 SYJ and it is not taxed, MOT'ed or Insured Thanks again
