Hi My automatic 1.4 6N Polo started to idle unevenly. It's what I would call hunting. When you rev it, it's fine above about 1200 revs. The problem has got worse in that it wont idle at times, mainly from cold. But even when fully warmed up, it's almost cutting out when you pull up. I've not had a look yet but I'm thinking a possible split in a vac pipe or a broken wire somewhere ? What other bits should I be looking for or test and how ? What would I have to do to check the throttle body ? and is there anything that could be wrong with the throttle body that would cause the symptoms ? Could it be something like a fuel filter ? Any advice would be much appreciated.
I've had a good look through previous posts and FAQs to see if anyone else described the same thing I've got but to no avail - apologies if this question is being re-asked! Since i've owned this Mk2f I've noticed a knocking / clunking / stall-like vibration when setting off from a standstill. This usually happened when the car was cold and running rich - just took some extra revs and a longer clutch release and it'd be fine. I just assumed it was a stalling noise as it would always go away once the engine was up to temp and got its oompf back. However today it manifest itself throughout a long drive and so I'm starting to wonder if it isn't something failing slowly. Any advice what to look for would be much appreciated! The noise almost sounds like its on the left hand side of the bay and judging by the conditions needed to make the noise I'm assuming its to do with the clutch. There isn't any noise when changing from 2nd to 3rd or when changing from 1st to second when in a slow roll (like in traffic) - I.e. the noise only happens when the engine speed is high and the drive speed is very low or zero (when the clutch is under the heaviest load?). Its a '93 Mk2f so has an un-adjustable clutch cable. Should I be looking through the inspection plate to check the friction surface thickness first? Has anyone else had this awful clonking before? Thanks for the help!
Ok, Never had this before. Just changed the coolant on my '96 1.4 polo. Now as much as it will start, if i put my foot heavy and quickly on the throttle, it goes to cut out, and is a bitch to start again. Before I did the change, if i pressed the throttle like that, it would just give a quick whistle and rev up as normal. I really like this car, but am getting very disillusioned by the issues I am having at the moment. Trouble to start in the morning and not knowing if fuel pump or what. The relays and trying to find out what they all do because they do not resemble anything I have found anywhere online (numbers are all different and in different places, although not sure if that makes any real difference) and now this after doing a simple coolant change
