  1. Hi all, I recently bought the chrome dial set from the GTI variant for my 1.4 (6N2 model). And this has got me wanting to try fit a ambient temperature sensor (which as they’re the same platform I imagine is possible), however never having looked over a gti to see where it would mount and the cabling goes I’ve hit a bit of a brick wall! Is anyone able to shed some light on where the sensor sits and cables run?
  2. hi , ive been told its at the back of the engine , starter motor needs to come off , but ive had her on ramps and still cant locate the sensor or the starter motor, any help??
  3. Hi, I'm looking to replace the coolant sensor but there seem to be two - a blue one and a black one. Picture Anyone know what each one is for? Thanks
  4. Hi all, I was hoping my first thread to be me starting with my Polo project, but that needs to wait until I fix my other Polo, for which I need a bit of help as a quick search didn't pan out :( Basically the troublesome Polo has issues with cold start. It starts and cuts off almost immediately. After 5 minutes of struggle to rev it, it manages to stay on, and after a while (as it warms up), there is no problem with starting it again... Starting it directly on LPG also has no issues. So generally I though the petrol pump was bust, but I checked with another one, and there is no difference. The only error it has is about the lambda sensor. It had it way before any issues where presented. At some point the catalytic converter was also removed. The throttle body is also clean and working properly. So as I have another 6n2 Polo with the same engine, I wanted to swap the lambda sensors and check if it would change anything. We only managed to swap the MAP sensors and make sure it is not from them, as the lambda sensors apparently are different. So the question at the moment is why are they different? The troublesome Polo is using a square plug sensor, where the other one is using the way cheaper flat plug sensor :) If I get a flat one for the troublesome Polo and just rewire the plug will it work, as this is normally done with other vehicles, using universal lambda sensors with the existing original wiring?
  5. Just had this come on for the first time ever but haven't had time to check the level yet (arrived home late and it was too dark), I'm assuming that since the coolant hasn't been changed in a long time it's just running a bit low and if that's the case does anyone know if there's any specific coolant I should use to top it up with? Am I right in thinking it should be just over the minimum level when cold as it will expand when heated? It's of course possible there's a sensor problem but I'm hoping I don't need to get the coolant tank replaced (fingers crossed). I don't think there's a bigger problem as the needle goes into the middle after a while like normal and doesn't overheat or anything.
  6. I've just put a replacement pierburg 1b carburettor in my polo MK2. Now she runs I've realised the rad fan isn't working and nor is the temperature gauge on the dash. The old pierburg had a line from the air filter sensor to the base of the back and the auto choke had some electrics. The new one is a manual choke and hasn't got the pipe for the sensor or any electrics. Could this be causing the fan not to run and the dodgy gauge?
  7. Hi everyone, Recently had a new crankshaft position sensor fitted on my 9N and thought I'd go ahead and replace the camshaft one as well. However, not being the most mechanical person in the world I can't find the thing at all! If anyone knows its exact whereabouts and could let me know (any pictures would be really appreciated) I would be very grateful! Cheers for reading and have a good day.
  8. Hello, I've recently got an ABD up and running in the mk3 (2f) polo. The block is an ABD, rehoned, washed out, new rings and bearings. The head is the ABD one, casting marks and sharp inner radius to valves smoothed out. GT cam, new valve oil seals and various other seals. Gt injection set up. It seems to run well but once up to temperature, when accelerating in the medium to high revs, the oil light starts to flash. If I lower the revs it might go off but it will come back on in medium revs, after a while it will just stay on and only go off if I turn the ignition off and start it back up again. None of it appears to affect the performance, just the oil light comes on and I can't figure out why So far I've: Tested the oil pressure - around 0.25 bar at idle, around 1.8 bar at 2000rpm and doesn't rise above that with higher revs. Replaced both oil pressure sensors, seperately, neither made a difference. Chopped off old pressure sensor wiring connectors, stripped wire back and fitted new ones. Checked the oil breather pipes for kinks and blockages - cleaned the seperator on the block during rebuild. None of this has solved the issue. If I ground the yellow wire (high oil pressure I believe) then the light wont come on at all. Only issue is I've tried both old and new sensors and the problem comes back. The old sensor is off my AAV engine and is 1.4 +/- 0.2 bar, the new one is 1.8 +/- 0.2 bar from ECP. It may be related or it may not but I cant get it to idle perfectly either, sometimes it will idle around the 920 area but other times more like 1000 - 1100. I've done ignition and idle to the GT timing guide on here but had to wind the idle screw down as far as it would go. Ignition timing is spot on. Another thing is the two white wires for the lambda probe pulled out their socket and both being white I'm not sure which way round they're meant to be so I've had to put them back without knowing if they're the right way round, is there a multimeter test I can do to figure that out? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Joe.
  9. Hello, I have a little problem with my polo 9n coupe. One year ago i bought a new steering box cause mine crushed. I got a new one from a vw polo 2007 (mine is 2003) the steering box fitted perfectly but i saw that the stering sensor on the box it s not exactly the same but the connector plug it s the same. The first one on the original box was like this: And the new stering box has this one: The steering sign steels appears me on board, i try to connect with VCDS but say s me that the sensor it s faulty so i got another one and tried again and got the same error. When i plug the old sensor the steering sign disappear from board, but this one dosen t fit on steering box. On VCDS i got this" 00816 - Steering sensor - G250- 37-00 - faulty WHat to do? WHat do you thnik it s the problem? Thank you guys!
