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

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.

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... I started doing to digging around and found there there is some kind of sensor or something behind the engine (highlighted in the picture below), next to the plugs, and it was gushing with oil which was leaking into one of the cylinders.
