Hi guys, I own a 6n2 1.0 Polo and I think I have a potentially expensive problem. Since the last few weeks, Ive noticed everytime I press the clutch in and out, I hear a faint *clunk* (always happen when releasing the pedal), regardless of where the gear stick is. Now its stopped with another problem. Everytime I drive, my car always jerks regardless of whether I have my foot in the gas. It turns out, my car always jerks at low rpm and stops jerking when I drive with the revs over 2000 rpm. When Im stationary, it doesnt jerk and the engine idles fine. When I recorded my engine revving upto redline, the engine remained tamed in its engine mounts (didnt move lol). When I drive inbetween the jerking range, and I press the clutch and coast. The jerking stops. I was also told that my cv boot or joint or gaitor or whatever the black rubber thing that my axles are connected to is called, its ripped on both sides with small leaks. So whats the potential cause of this? Please dont say its the clutch. Please say its just low transmission fluid.
· I have a 2001 Polo 1.4 with a mind of it's own. The windows have wound down with key in lock but not switched on, the central locking has locked the car while I was outside, again key in lock but not switched on, fortunately, I'd left the hatch open, the central locking works normally sometimes. I get a lot of clicking from the relays ( relay 410 in particular which I changed to no effect) and warning lights on dash flash when I switch off, this reduces if I put handbrake on. To add to this, I have a battery drain,( flat in 24 hours) so I had to fit an isolator switch. I have disconnected all the fuses, in car and under bonnet one by one but the drain is still there, the red wire from the battery is the problem ( it's unfused at least at the battery end) but I don't know where it goes as the wiring diagram in my Haynes manual doesn't agree with the wiring on my car ( no surprise there then). Suspect earth fault somewhere. Plus the air bag light is on which means that the car is an MOT failure. The engine and EPC light has been on for years but as that is not an MOT failure I can live with that. I have spent a lot on the car recently, new discs and pads front and rear, new battery, new alternator and of course, cam belts so am not inclined to sell it which would be impossible in it's condition, engine runs fine. I would appreciate if anyone have any idea's out there. Thanks in advance.
