  1. Hello polo people I post on here way to often at the moment but I'm having a slight issue with my cam belt it seems to be tracking to one side that much that the lip of the belt is just off the cam sprocket, now iv changed the water pump and belt plus the aux belt, my thinking is that the water pump is slightly off centre or iv tightened the aux belt to much. But just incase is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this? Cheers

  4. MK2F AAU Tuning

    Hey guys so the engine swap to the 1.6 AEE engine has gone on hold as my girlfriend can't afford the insurance price with that engine swap done so we are looking to get a little more power out of the little 1.0 AAU now i have some parts kicking about from my old MK2F which was a 1.3 AAV but i changed engine for 3F. Parts i have laying arround are: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.3 AAV Wiring loom 1.3 AAV Air Doughnut 1.3 AAV 5spd Gearbox 1.4 ABD SPI Throttle body 1.4 ABD Induction elbow (maybe a little overkill) 1.8 ADZ SPI Throttle Body 1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter (whole ADZ engine & wiring loom) Im thinking maybe: 1.3 AAV ECU 1.4 ABD / 1.8 ADZ SPI throttle body 1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow 1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter Think that should give it a little more power under the pedal? got quite a bit like i said so if anyone else knows of a way to get a little more power out of the AAU with the parts i have listed above please let me know
  5. polo mk2f common faults

    hello, the mk2f polo is getting old and I am wondering what are the most common mechanical / electrical issues in your experience. for example if lots of alternators windings fail at the 100k miles mark, I would consider servicing or buying a replacement before getting stranded due to a common fault (also considering most spare parts are only available as aftermarket and they are not so common anymore at scrapyards, at least in Italy) In particular I am interested in mileage or age-when-failed of components not normally considered wear items but replaced on a as-needed basis such as: fuel pumps (lift and inline) throttle body assy (injector, potentiometer, step motor...) ECU spark plug HT cables wheel bearings gearbox bearings etc at what mileage are those usually replaced? do they give any sign before giving up? here is what I found in my experience: - alternator and starter motor brushes needed to be replaced at 60k miles - lambda probe gave up at 100k miles, catalyzer went before that - had to tighten all sump bolts at 100k miles because started leaking oil, the most inaccessible ones (need to remove exhaust) were just hand tight - plastic 'ball' under gearlever mechanism crushed (hard to shift gears) at 90k miles - gearbox shaft oil seal started leaking at 100k miles

  7. I'm looking for the rear box hanger repair brackets that vw heritage sell but they don't have any in stock, does anyone know if anywhere else sells them? Many thanks, Michael.
  8. Hi everyone, if anyone could help me diagnose my problem that would be amazing! I'm sure its down to something electrical? I have recently got back hold of the car (off road since'15) I had her firing a few times but running naff (always near enough flooding) so since these things I have changed; spark plugs, battery, replaced 1 HT lead (misfire), dizzy cap, oil sensor, blue and black coolant temp sensors, full service (oil, air & fuel) and also added and exhaust system. I have also added a gasket to the throttle body which was missing and fixed the one which sits between this and the carb (thick black one). Only after getting this far with the car today I've managed to see how bad the carbs flooding, if anyone has any ideas what it could be please let me know OR if you get the nail on the head I will PP you a beer token! :) Many thanks video here -
  9. Hi, I recently changed my oil pressure switch originally it was flashing with the ignition on (car wouldn’t start at this point), so now with the new switch - no flashing on ignition. However now it runs to some extent the oil light is flashing when the engines running, I did just change the oil filter today so was wondering if this could be something to do with it or how could I stop it? Cheap sensor? Thanks!

  11. Hi guys any information on this would be much appreciated, my 1l polo has been having intermittent problems for a while and now I'm not running it because it's just too annoying having to wait 10-20 minutes to let's it cool off before it runs.... It has been serviced and has had lots of parts put on it such as new leads, a complete new distributor including rotary arm and cap, new coil pack I've drained the cooling system completely and refilled, it's had new temp sensors put on it and I've tested the fan works with a hair grip across the terminals and it runs, have swap out the sensor in the radiator with another one I have which hasn't helped, there are no fuses blown so I am a bit lost with it now. Before I changed the distributor it wouldn't restart straight away but now it fires after cutting out and runs until it cuts out with no warning, my temperature gauge stopped working after swapping out the temp sensors I don't think this is related in any way, the car used to bunny hop a little bit now and again ages ago, it also had a loss of power while driving in gear and cutting out... That's all I can think of currently if I think of anything else I will add it in later! Thanks in advance for any advice, Billy.

  22. My 92 breadvan has been a right pain the last 3 mnths, i've replaced loads but its still running poorly, so far i've replaced ,inlet manifold gasket,exhaust gasket, plugs,leads ,dizzy water temp sensor,lambda sensor, single point injector carb mounting flange,various pipes,air cleaner. ECU but still has same issue. It will start & tick over,drive lovely but once up to running temp around 80deg it starts to be like a kangaroo, really jerky till you stick foot flat on floor, also then won't tick over very well . Any ideas guys ,thanks. Its a 1.0L Cat model AAU Kev
  23. Having some trouble starting my 1993 1.3 Spi AAV. Usually when it's cold it will turn over, fire and then cut out immediately. It usually does this a couple of times before starting up with a small splutter and then running absolutely fine. When the engine is warm it will fire up no problem, and general running is spot on. Now I first thought that the blue temp sensor was to blame, so changed this with a known good one, with no difference. I then bought a brand new sensor, with still no difference. I then had a 1.8 golf throttle body so decided to swap that with the 1.3 throttle body, keeping the 1.3 injector. No difference, in fact I would say it is worse starting with it on, but I think there is a slight air leak one one of the vacuum lines. Heres a video of the problem: Other than the temp sensor and the throttle body I've also recently done the plugs, leads, distributor cap and rotor arm. The battery on it isn't great but always gets the car going so I don't think voltage drop is an issue. Cheers in advance
