  1. 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.] So anyway I thought I must have a misfire problem. I changed the camshaft sensor (confusing it with crankshaft sensor) through seeing things on youtube. The problem was still there. I changed all 4 coil packs and spark plugs yesterday. The engine still shakes I would have changed the crankshaft sensor if I knew where it was! I found those ignition spark testers (goes between the spark plug and lead and lights up if there is a spark). The last sparkplug is not sparking I think! (Will have to wait till it's dark to double check). So the engine is shaking as 1 sparkplug is not firing I believe. What could the problem be? - car starts with no problem! I want to try and avoid buying unnecessary parts again so thought I would come here. Mileage 65,000. Thanks
  2. Hi all. Got a 1992 fox with a 1L carb motor for free a couple of years ago with a blown head. Got that welded up and rebuilt the motor and it's been going silky smooth ever since today.... Was going along and it just quit like I turned the key off. Did some fault finding and have power going to the big multi plug that goes to the coil, but no spark at all. Fuses under the bonnet on the passenger side are all good. What things can I check next? used to good old points so a bit lost on this one. Is the coil a common issue? I read something about a hall sensor but don't know if that's for the injection model only? Thanks in advance!!
  3. I thought this needed a new thread as it seems to be a separate problem. Having now solved my carburettor blockage I've uncovered a new issue. I patched up the battery bay and was doing some coolant related stuff and since then intermittently no power is getting to the coil when I try to start the engine. Using my timing strobe I can see when there's a spark from the HT lead, sometimes nothing. I've tried two coils I know work so it's not them, tried new rotor arm and cap. It's a very random problem usually solved by unplugging things and plugging back in and waiting. I think either some water has got in somewhere, I've loosened an earth or the dizzy has gone potentially. I've got a spare dizzy I might try tomorrow, otherwise any idea what it could be? My coil is the cylinder one with the three prongs on each side (is the middle an earth?) It's an HZ MK2 bready Edit: The battery earth goes to the body but also branches off and heads into the cabin if that means anything.
  4. okay I've posted this before when i had no idea of what it could be so I'm not really sure if its wired in properly but i followed a post about wiring the mk2 ignition in and I'm sure I've got it right but I've still got no spark ! the only thing that i can think off is that my coils is at fault and I'm in need of a new one but still would like people to have a crack at trying to solve my issue i know the rest once I've got the spark so no need on telling me the rest of the set up but its just getting the spark I'm not to sure where I'm going/gone wrong i need this car to fire before next week so if people can help me out as much as possible thank you
  5. Hello all.. I'm in need of some help. I have a VW Lupo bit done an engine conversation to a 1.6 gti engine out of a polo 6n2. The car run fine before I did the conversation but now nothing. The engine turns over but when the ignition is on the engine is still cranking over even when I let the key go (if that makes sense) any advice on this?? The car also has no spark? I've check both in car and engine loom but everything seems to be fine and all plugged in. I'm in need of help please anyone
