  1. 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
  2. Breaking a mk2f 1.3 genesis, it has a gt engine on bike carbs, with the gt gearbox.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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. 😁
  6. 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 😂)
  7. Does anyone know how much this is lowered by.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. Hi, I have recently put my coupe S Gt on the road with the original coupe S gearbox. The gearbox gave up on me at the weekend, so I'm now looking for a replacement. Finding a GT 'box is not looking likely at the moment. Can anyone advise a decent box to match with GT? I would prefer something that will be a straight swap. Gearbox codes and what car they can be found in would be perfect. Cheers Boab
  11. I have found a replacement CEH 'box for my GT. While I am in about it I will replace the clutch. What else should I look at replacing, seals etc? The gearbox should be here within the next week so I am trying to get everything together before it arrives. Cheers Boab
  12. This weekends bilit - hamber clay bar and polish and wax. Took about 3h but still have black trim that need attention etc.

    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

    What's the difference

    Hi people This has probably been covered on here before but what is the difference between a G40 polo and gt polo?
  17. Hi all I removed the clutch while waiting for the new kit to arrive. But like a plum I forgot to take a photo of the pressure plate so I could install the new one the same. So now I can't remember the correct way round the pressure plate is installed. So if anyone can help please ? Many thanks.
  18. Hi before I bolt up new febi water pump kit just checking I don't need any additional sealer on the face of the pump itself ? I assume we only use the rubber sealing ring that comes with the kit ? Many thanks.
  19. Hi just looking at replacement both of the coolant temperature sensors. I removed both blue and black sensors and both have stamped on them max temp 125c. Question is what's the starting temp ? Both sensors are og VW parts . Many thanks
  20. Hi my 91 GT cut out twice the other day while driving engine just cut out. I pulled over and it started back up. I drove around another 5mins and as I slowed down for traffic lights it cut out again but fired up straight away again . External fuel pump was replaced around two years ago with an eBay special. I must point out this is not a daily runner as I have another VW polo Your thoughts and advice is most welcome.

    My VW polo BlueGT

    Hi All, I’m new to the forum! So ive had my BlueGT for just over a week and I absolutely love it! Anyway i I have one little issue with it, well not so much an issue, I just need reassuring that it’s normal! Basically I'm a little concerned at how hard the ride is and that I can feel everything and every little imperfection of the road through the steering wheel? Is this normal on the Blue GT? All replies much appreciated.
  22. Hi everyone. I think my fuel pump is dead. At first I thought I'd ran out of fuel so put 2 Jerry cans in but still won't start. You here the pump prime when turn the ignition on but if disconnect the hose at the the inlet only get fuel if you suck it I don't recommend this! I know I can't get a new like for like so will need to use a universal. Any suggestions or advice would be a great help please. Thanks guys.

    Jordan's MK2F breadvan

    Hi all been wanting to do one of these for a while but only just got the chance i bought my mk2f breadvan from stockport around september 2017 & it's been an on going daily project ever since. i painted it blue with graffiti paint lowered it on an ebay lowering kit & started doing shows in 2018. after blowing the first 1l engine up i did a quick engine change to another 1l for under £100 just to keep the car on the road. comes to november 2018 time & i wanted to start a winter build. started with painting the car, the car is now melon yellow - don

    Mk2f gt judder

    Got a judder coming from the front/ nearside front when pulling away. It feels like an engine mount but I've replaced the lower one with a golf rallye unit a while ago. Tia , Michael.
  25. 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 b
