  1. Hey guys, not much of a greese monkey and my English is bad so bear with me. I recently bought a 2nd hand 1.4 16v 2003 BBY, been running ok with a few issues but and have been able to fix them, cleaned it up and still working on it. the recent problem m now having is a leak from the valve located at the top of the engine as shown from the attachments, when I cold start it, runs for about 2-5m before it starts getting hiccups. At first I would get black and blue smoke but now just hiccups without smoke(this is after I hadn't started it for a week). Problems s
  2. Hi, unfortunately my bready has become an annoying illusive siv... I have had an oil leak fairly excessively for a couple months costing copious amounts on oil. I decided after looking and looking that although I had a suspicion of the leak being from either the rocker or head gaskets as had just changed them. So after fully dismantling and re assembling after a deep bay clean and an actual metal coloured engine had appeared I was able to see it was from the rocker cover gasket in the drivers side and closest to front of car corner of the gasket.

    What is this..?

    Hi all, I'm having a bit of a problem with my 1998 Polo (6N). I recently noticed a considerable oil leak and a lack of performance as well as a misfire...
