Hey Everyone, SO my polo 9n has taken some damage recently. I am teaching my younger sister to drive with it, when she downshifted from 4th into 1st at about 30 mph. Obviously car stalled instantly (it stalled very hard!), but then it would not start again for a few minutes. Managed to start it again after a few tries but now it has a very very rough idle and jerks forward when moving constantly, wont accelerate properly and stalls very very easily. No fault codes at the present moment. Im thinking the knock on the engine when she stalled it killed one of the coils/spark plugs as a best case scenario, could my engine be more seriously damaged than this?
Hi all I have a question i would like to ask. My polo is a 94 1.6L I4 and i'm having an issue where sometimes when i start the car up it would start up fine but cut out after about 1 second as if it stalls. Sometimes it would take several attempts before it would start fine again. It hasn't happened in 2 months prior to this week. Last time it happened was after a night of heavy rain. I'm not sure if that has something to do with it? I'm starting to think it could be the immobilizer? If that was the case, would buying a second hand one and putting it in fix the problem? or what else can i check? Thanks
I put in a new mount a few weeks ago and she ran fine. Then I was replacing a rad hose and today driving her she was fine but kept stalling when idling, off the throttle, even in 3rd gear at 30. Pulling up to junctions you have to keep the gas on or restart the engine. What could be wrong?
NebulaicToaster posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustI did a full head gasket change recently, new gaskets seals water pump belt and skimmed serviced head. After putting her all back together and fixing an ignition problem she is still running a little rough I think (I can't tell if it's a normal running sound because I've never owned a polo before and she was in this condition when I got her). I took her for a test drive yesterday and after starting up and putting the choke in she kept stalling going into first. I had to put a load of revs on to get her to move. After driving for a bit it stopped being an issue. I colourtuned the engine before the head change, should I retune now the head has been done (the leak was on cylinder one front right), and could it be a mixture problem? I also put a pierburg carb on to replace the old one (another 1b but with manual choke and no external reservoir, maybe the reservoir is causing the lack of fuel to the cylinders)? Sounds like it could be a misfire but I've got the timing bang on and all the plugs are getting electric (got a stroboscope) so maybe I've cocked up the head gasket? I've got a compression tester now and I'll do one after the weekend, I really hope it's something carb related though because the head was a pain to do . .. It's a MK2 1.05 HZ bready Thanks for all your help with her, sorry for the mountain of questions, just want her to be the best she can be!
