  1. Hey folks, I have a 2006 1.2 Polo, 55hp, with the BMD engine code.. 97k miles if relevant At the minute it's burning oil at a rate of knots, currently my theory is the PCV/crankcase breather valve is gone, as there's a light film of oil building up on the outside of it - I was wondering if anyone knew the part number for this? I've tried to find out to no avail, and the local VW dealership isn't getting back to me Incidentally, if anyone also knows the oil sump plug crush washer dimensions that would be super handy! I've been a bit naughty and reused the old one last time, I'd really rather get a new one TIA!
  2. Hi Gents, I have a few questions below, first some background. I have a 1991 Polo Mk2F with AAU engine, 126k mi, and it's been off the road for 5 years. Decided to get it back on the road so have repaired some mice-chewed indicator and heater-blower wires under the dash (I now own a cat!). Checked all fluids OK and fired her up, started first time :-), getting up to temp she smells a bit rich, but I've only driven modern cars recently so maybe had forgotten how older cars smell. The oil filler cap hole has always smelled a bit petroly in previous years, but all previous MOTs have been well within emissions. I decide to take off the air filter housing lid and end up looking at inlet parts: 1) What is a normal amount of smoke from the crankcase vent hole, where the pipe enters the floor of the air filter housing? Mine looks like someone has lit a cigar. I know the purpose is to evacuate crankcase vapour but was surprised at how it was puffing along. I'd previously sucked the hole (ooh matron!) with the engine off and was surprised at getting a lungful of vapour when the car hadn't been fired up that day. Is this normal or have I got bad piston blowby - the car has done only 1k mi after its last MOT 5 years ago before being off the road so I don't suspect wear? The throttle body and filter housing look very lightly glossed with oil - nothing horrific. 2) Is it normal for the throttle (when closed at idle), and the hedgehog underneath, to have drips of fuel? I know it deliberately runs rich at startup, but I was surprised to see some puddling around the hedgehog. The injector seemed to be squirting less when warm idling vs cold idling, and opening the throttle lead to a healthy squirt - seems reasonable behaviour. 3) The warm air-cold air intake with the flap inside (before the air filter housing)... With engine off the flap was open about 1cm, and pushing it down by hand made it pop up 1cm again. With engine just started, the vacuum line successfully lifted the flap and gave pure hot air, when engine well up to temp the flap was totally closed (all sounds good). Should it ever show partial behaviour? It felt like a spring was holding it part open. The car smells rich but as it's not (yet) road legal I can't take it for a burn and test wide throttle. At full water temp, the car runs OK, throttle blips seem decent, and the Blue Temp Sender is outputting 250 Ohm which I believe to be correct. Tempted to just MOT it and hope for the best - just wanted to make sure I've not missed anything blatant. Cheers in advance
