  1. So after doing a 180 mile trip last Sunday, I didn't check my oil, I checked it this evening and there was no oil what so ever on the dipstick. Now I topped the oil up about 3 to 4 weeks ago as I saw it was low and carried on driving etc, untill I checked it today. I Do not see any kind of leak, and there is no smoke. I have put more oil back in but only just halfway on the min and max. And I also out cardboard under the car for tonight. As I have work at 6am. Any idea as to where my oil went? Or is it normal for a vw polo to go through that much oil on just 180 mile trip?

    A shame to scrap. Offers invited for this much loved Polo for repair or spares. Buyer arranges collection. 98k+ miles. Last MoT Oct 2015. Vehicle is SORN. Needed front discs replacing - as cost exceeded value, vehicle has sat on drive. Paintwork has some rust spots and scrape on rear nearside arch. Offside tyres need attention. Engine ran well - battery was good but now flat.

  3. Hello guys, First of all I am new to this forum and I am glad to be apart of it, little back story, I bought a polo 6n2 1.0 MPI as my first car, I'm wanting to fix it up and make it run for a whole lot longer. I love all VW cars and he sold me it for £350, I thought was an absolute steal, until I actually paid for it and took it to my mechanic friend for a look over. The clutch is pretty much shot, so I am replacing that next week, for £170 total, but as I drove the car in the rain it started to misfire badly and ended up stalling constantly at a roundabout in first, no biggy, I knew the issue right then and there the spark leads haven't been changed in 91,000 miles and where torn and cracked, so I replaced all of the leads, plugs, air filters and oil filter, but there's always been this noise coming from the air filter box housing unit or close to it's rather random and and this video I will show, shows that the noise is the same intervals and timing but it isn't sometimes it can last for 5 seconds all the way up to a minute and only starts to happen once the car has heated up and my mechanic can't understand what the noise is, also when you put your foot down the engine has a raspy sound to it, not a normal sound, I'm hoping this is the clutch but I am doubting that it is. Another thing is the car in low gears is so much harder to handle, when you take your foot off the accel it jerks like hell, in small car parks it makes it a nightmare. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated Here is the video:

    Hi, for sale is my 1994 VW Polo Mk2f. It has done 65k genuine miles (have some old Mot's and service receipts that can help verify this). I have 2 keys, one genuine, and the original VW handbook with the booklets inside. The car has been well maintained and is in extremely good condition for a 24 year old car! It has genuine BBS RA's off of a G40 that were professionally acid dipped and refurbished. This has been such a fun car to own ane drive. As my first car I couldn't have wished for anything more fun, reliable and unique to drive. I constantly got remarks about how nice the car was and how unique also. These are getting rare now and finding one with low mileage and clean bodywork is almost impossible! The car has already had the dreaded fuel tank recently so should be fine for at least a few years to come. The car had a full service including water pump and head gasket, coolant, brake fluid, cambelt, filters and oil in April 2017 along with brakes and suspension and the engine work. It also had a new clutch and clutch cable. It's had replacement wheel bearings, track rod ends and CV joints also. The car has had the following modifications: Full engine conversion from a standard 45hp 1.0l engine to a 1.3l MPI engine out of a Polo Mk2f GT. Standard these engines push out 75hp. I believe the engine is on sub 100k but I have no proof. I then bought a ported and polished cylinder head, believed to be on 60k miles (again no proof). I had the ported head sent off and had the head skimmed, pressure tested, valve guides ground down and valves reseated at Modus engineering in Tunbridge Wells. I then built up the engine with a fast road camshaft from Newman cams. The engine now has uprated Magnecor red HT leads, a Powerflow performance panel filter and a PoloPerformanceParts stage 2 ECU chip (7200rpm limiter increase). The car is believed to be pushing out at least 100hp which in a sub 800kg car is enough to have some fun! I do still have the standard ECU chip if you wish to go back to standard. Since the engine work the car has covered around 10k miles. To support the engine enhancements, I bought all new OE equivalent shock absorbers and coil springs all round. I also polybushed the front suspension components, and replaced the rubber anti-roll bar bushes with nylon blocks. This makes the car feel firm to drive and handles amazingly. The car has also had decent brakes all round. In the interior I have changed the door cards to incredibly rare ones with speaker pods built in. I have then fitted JBL 6.5" speakers with tweeters higher up the door card. This has been wired in properly with all the wires behind the dash and only a small piece is visible between the door and the dash. The seats are the dark grey ones with the rainbow coloured Volkswagen writing on them which I massively prefer to the Fox seats. I have changed the stereo to a Sony bluetooth music and possibly phone also. I have ran subwoofer wires to the back of the car which work fine, however the sub and amp are not included in the sale. The boot has a carpeted wooden false floor for supporting the subwoofer as the standard boot floor is very weak and couldn't really support anything. There is still the spare wheel underneath this. I have changed the clocks in the dash to the better GT clocks so a rev counter is there. I have also fitted a Momo leather gear stick and matching steering wheel with a genuine Momo boss. I also bought carpet floor mats as it didn't have any and I prefer them to the genuine rubber ones. I have also wired in a cigarette lighter so I could charge my phone or use a satnav while driving. On the exterior I have made a few subtle changes. I sprayed the VW grill badge and boot badges black, replaced the orange rear lights for genuine factory smoked lights, clear front and side indicators with chrome bulbs and now have body coloured door handle inserts. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money on this car and will be sad to see it go. Would make a perfect first car as it did for me, with cheap insurance even with no black box. The engine modification is not declared with the DVLA, however I do have the engine number saved so if you wish to officially register the change in engine capacity, you are able to. Sadly, there are a few minor issues and I will try to be as honest as possible (I am quite particular so some of these might not even affect you at all): - There is a small oil leak from the head. I believe it's where I put the head gasket on, some dirt might have got trapped and allows small amounts of oil to sweat out the engine. I have been topping the oil up every now and then. - There are some scrapes down the passenger side. I have tried to picture the damage to the passenger side as it's the worst area. Some small scrapes mainly on the door and rear arch. Also the drivers door has has a dent pulled out at some point. - There is some sort of sticker residue on the b pillers that I can't get off easily. (not put that much effort in. Just used autoglym tar and glue, not much happened so I left it alone.) - Where I fitted the clocks, the wiring loom on the back of them is wrong, so occasionally the coolant light flashes, when the coolant level and temperature are perfectly normal. Usually turning the car off and on again fixes this. - The sunroof leaked water and had been sealed up when I bought the car. I changed the seal and it still leaked water so I put enough sealant to stop water dripping on me while driving. If this bothers you, a new sunroof or new sealant applied neatly would work. If someone takes as good care as I and the previous owners have, it will have many years of life left and is starting to become an appreciating retro cool car. Currently it is running a PPP stainless 4 branch manifold and full PPP stainless decat exhaust system. If this is going with the car, an additional cost of £250 will need to be added on the the asking price of £1500. To arrange a viewing/test drive please TEXT 07383417526 (will NOT answer calls as I work unsociable hours and may be asleep or working when you call). Car will be available to drive away from the 10th August.

  14. Hi all, I can't find out how to install this febi gear selector lever repair kit. It has the ball joint, cup, top plate and bolts from the bottom of the gear lever. I can't get the old one off, because the plastic section that sits above it is in the way and cant go anywhere. Any help possible? Cheers!
  15. Hi, I've got the amber steering warning light and intermittent power steering so I opted to change the pump but could only get an a2 pump. Having fitted this pump the power steering appears to be working OK but the warning light is still lit. Could it be that the ECU detects that the pump was originally on an Audi and flag it as an error / fault? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Olá from Portugal

    Hey everyone, My name is Marcos and I'm from Madeira Island, Portugal. I currently own two cars, one of them is a VW Polo 6N 1.4 8v Open Air which was my first car, and the other is a VW Golf VII 2.0 TDI Highline which is right now my daily driver. I knew this forum for quite some time, back when I got some nasty problems with my Polo and tried to search for a solution on the internet and I discovered clubpolo.co.uk by accident. Now with all the mechanical problems fixed, I decided to retribute the help that I got and decided to take part in this active community and sharing my knowledge. Cheers !

    VW Polo 6N 1.4 8v Open Air

    Hey guys, So here is my VW Polo 6N 1.4 8v Open Air with 60 hp from November 1996. The car recently have been painted and the engine all rebuilt, the car is pretty much brand new ! Now I'm focusing in the interior, specially the roof. I have leak on the sunroof that is driving me mad ! I've been trying to fix it for the last 4 years... I hope you guys appreciate the car as much as I do ! Cheers !
  18. Hi all I have a 1984 polo bredvan and my relay keeps clicking on and off so I am wondering if anyone know which relays are for what as I believe it is the lighting relay at fault thanks
  19. After years of wanting one and a year of looking for one I've finally got one!! It's got high mileage, 165,000, but the engine runs nice and smooth. It's a bit tatty around the edges but it's probably the best condition polo I've bought yet - saying that's probably going to come back and bite me. Well we did a 2 hour drive to go and pick it up and me and my dad couldn't smile wide enough! There's a bit of rust on the arches, very minor, and minor rust on a few panels. When we got it home I went to open the door and the door handle came off - was no screw holding it in. The speakers don't work, simple wiring job. But the wheels are feking amazing condition! Don't even look like they've been refurbed just really clean! The plans for this year: *Fix door handle - probably do that tomorrow weather permitting *Fix speakers - tomorrow *Cambelt, oil change - general stuff when you buy a car. *Gradually get each panel sorted, can do panel by panel as colour match isn't vital as long as it's near enough. *But some 16v seats to steal the foam out of as the foam in the current seats has long gone - no tears though, well a tiny one. *Machine polish it. Only got one photo at the moment was to excited to take photos! Polished the wing and bumper and they came up nicely. The colours are really vibrant in person! Should be going to ultimate dubs next sunday in it.

    Back in a Polo Gti 6n2

    Hi guys so am back in a Polo Gti after 6years. My last Polo was built for a Fast road/ Track Car and was unreal. It had Comp Mo5’s, Bmc with custom intake, fully Poly Bushed, front upper and lower strut brace, rear upper strut brace, striped out interior and a PhilJ Suspension My New Gti is fully standard and has Full-service history, but it was going to get broke and scraped so I bought the car knowing it had a broken Gearbox. So things am doing to it: Fix the Box G60 Brakes Full respray over the winter (freshen up the paint and get rid of the lacquer peal. Then I need to decide to build another fast road car or keep it original? Also does PhilJ still do suspensions?

    Lots of Polo Parts

    Lots of polo parts from MK2s mostly, although a few from other models. Prices are upon request as there are so many, but for the purposes of forum rules, everything is £5. In reality I'll just want to cover postage costs and maybe a few pounds to fund the ongoing restoration. Parts range from tiny trim clips to whole panels. List is accessed via the link below https://1drv.ms/x/s!AjU5ikMqY-bbcx1FaUX-e28LASU
  22. This weekends bilit - hamber clay bar and polish and wax. Took about 3h but still have black trim that need attention etc.

    Polo 2000 Manual

    Hello, I'm wondering are there download-able versions of Polo 2000 Service and User manuals? Recently I have got one, and I'd like to learn more on how it works and to become less addicted to service repairs. I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum. If it is, please direct me to the right one. Thank you!
  24. took engine out and thought while it's out change a few things at same time. power steering hoses , i think theres two of them. they both look abit rusty in some places. anyway of cleaning them down, take rust off and spray some paint on them? new ones cost 70-80 pounds each
  25. I am trying to undo the dogbone mount bolt but it is not budging. 16 spanner on both and I am turning the nut anti clockwise? Is this right direction, because I feel if I try any hard I am going to round the bolt.
