  1. Hi.first question from a new member. Please can anyone help ? I have just bought my son who is learning to drive a 59 plate 1.4 dsg polo. Drove great on test drive as they always do! But has now got a very slight misfire. Been in to a local and very trusted garage who traced to coil pack fault on cylinder 3. So changed coil pack reset codes and after 10 miles EPC /EMO lights came on with servere misfire. returned to garage and changed injector on no 3 as this was now apparent. Garage has been great and i have no complaints. It been back in for more tests and checks but still comes up with cyl
  2. Hello all, My 6n2 w reg 1.4mpi 8v will misfire and the dash warning lights will all flicker when driving in heavy rain, I don't get this issue any other time, just in heavy rain. I've replaced the HT leads, just wondering if anyone had any other ideas or experienced the same problem?
  3. I've been busy after buying my '93 Mk2f 1.3 (SPI) polo giving it a full service and replacing any old or duff parts. The thing was running like hot garbage when I bought it but now is running great and doing just shy of 50mpg on a proper run. However... When starting cold it misfires on one cylinder, clearing up and idling properly when it warms up a bit (i.e. not ~90 degrees, just when its a bit warmer so still in the temperature-controlled fuelling schedule). This problem went away totally when the plugs and leads were changed a few hundred miles ago - it started on a
  4. Hi All, I have had what used to be an intermittent problem with my Polo 1.4 petrol 2005 for years - you used to hit the accelerator but it seemed to lose power. I think I once read a code, crankshaft sensor - but I have never seen that again. The problem has now become permanent (if related) - the engine shakes. I got a few codes. I think I got an engine warning light once. Cylinder 2 Misfire (P0302). [I cleared the codes and engine light a few times or the years. At the moment there are no fault codes or light, but the engine still shakes.]
  5. A short video showing the firing order on a mk2 distributor I have a youtube chanel just for the mk2 2f polo to serve as a visual aid to some common problems and help people as they get to grips with working on an older car
  6. The polo has developed a smokey misfire quite suddenly This one is taken about 10 seconds after the garage was filled with smoke, oil water levels appeared to be normal This second vid is a after a large bang trying to start, you can see the wall is black from the last few goes Seen anything like that before?
  7. Happy new year all - I wonder if anybody here is knowledgable on the AUC engine as fitted to my 2003 Lupo, as I am at a total loss as to what is wrong with mine. A month or so ago it started misfiring. I replaced with a brand new ignition coil, HT leads and spark plugs to eliminate potential spark problems. The misfire remained. With the engine running, unplugging injector 1 does not change the idle. Nor does unplugging the HT lead. So the issue is on cylinder 1. I swapped the injector on cylinder 1 over to cylinder 4. The problem stayed on cylinder 1, so the injector
  8. Had the check engine light come on, on the way home. It was running very rough and tried stalling but made it home. I've scanned it for codes and it came up with P0304 misfire detected, cleared the codes and drove it around the block. No light came on but still lack of power, chugging, lights dimming and a slight burning smell. I also done a 'readiness test' on my scanner and it says Catalyst - Fail EVAP Sys. - Fail O2 Sensor - Fail Heated O2 - Fail EGR Sys. - Fail Don't know if that's related or not. Any ideas?
  9. Hi all, please remove if required. 1.2 55hp AWY engine. Recently I had a misfire. I suspected that one of the coil packs so ordered new ones with new spark plugs. While waiting for these, today I started the car and heard a little knocking noise with oil level being low. Topped up oil knocking was gone. Took out the spark plugs and noticed oil coming out through spark plug in cylinder 3. Someone can shed me some light on whats wrong? Cheers
  10. Hey Everyone, SO my polo 9n has taken some damage recently. I am teaching my younger sister to drive with it, when she downshifted from 4th into 1st at about 30 mph. Obviously car stalled instantly (it stalled very hard!), but then it would not start again for a few minutes. Managed to start it again after a few tries but now it has a very very rough idle and jerks forward when moving constantly, wont accelerate properly and stalls very very easily. No fault codes at the present moment. Im thinking the knock on the engine when she stalled it killed one of the coils/sp
  11. Fully rebuilt my engine and I’ve noticed I have a misfire on cylinder number 3.injector 3 is blocked so I’ve ordered a replacement and hoping that solves the problem.if it doesn’t what else could be an issue?
  12. Hi everyone I am new to VW and really enjoying my 89 breadvan with a 1.3 manual choke Weber carb. I have recently been having a problem with the engine it has started to misfire and will only run if the choke is out hot or cold and won't idle it just cuts out. You can drive it with the choke out but you can feel it misfiring at low engine RPM, if you accelerate it's fine and doesn't miss but with choke in and dip the clutch it just immediately dies. Can anyone help it would be much appreciated I am completely stumped as where to begin looking. Thanks
  13. Been having trouble with my 40 for a few months now which all started with the distributor filling with oil.since then it’s developed an annoying misfire which I have now worked out is happening in cylinder number 2.im just unsure as to what my next move is if I’m honest I’ve done a compression test it’s not great but not bad either.Any advice would be greatly appreciated
