  1. Hi there every one this is my first post so please bear with me...I have a 1998 6n 1.4 petrol polo which has been playing me up slightly the problem is fuel I have to put a bit of fuel in the throttle body for it to start then it will start all the time well when I say all the time if I leave it for a few hours I have to put some more fuel in the throttle body and away she go's..I have changed the fuel filter but still the same..when the car is running I have unplugged each injector to see if they are working which they are..any help would be appreciated
  2. Hi, I’m hoping someone can help me with a problem I’m having on my 2009 Polo Match 60. The car intermittently will not start. Sometimes it is fine but other times all of the dashboard lights come on after you turn the ignition, you can hear a click but the engine does not crank. Eventually, it you try the ignition a number of times it will start and be fine. The battery voltage seemed low and the battery was pretty old so I’ve had that replaced. After this it was fine for a couple of days but today the same thing happened. I’ve also hooked up a multimeter and couldn’t see any current draw. The car also has an electric window fault that seems to be related - the passenger window will not wind down using the driver’s controller but usually works with the passenger controller. The driver’s controller worked immediately after the battery change but has now stopped working again. Any advice gratefully received....
  3. Hi, I own a 2009 9n3 1.4tdi 70 with what I’m pretty sure is a BWB engine. I was driving recently when I thought the car went into limp mode. I switched the engine off and then tried to turn back on again, but it turned over for ages before starting and the engine warning light came on. I thought the issue might be the anti stutter valve, so I took it off and cleaned it, using the access to partly clean the EGR while I was at it. While both seemed to be in need of a clean, this didn’t solve the problem, so I got the error codes read and among five faults was the cam position sensor. I’ve replaced the sensor and the error code related to that is now cleared, but I’m still left with three errors and the long turnover before starting. The error codes are: P2102: throttle actuator control motor- circuit low P0243: turbo watergate solenoid A P0489: EGR control circuit low These can be cleared while the engine is on, but reappear at every start. Given the long turnover, I’ve been fighting a chronically low battery and haven’t been able to do any long or high speed runs since cleaning the anti-stutter and EGR. I’ve resigned myself to selling, but would prefer to get the faults cleared before attempting to. Any words of wisdom?

    Electrical Problem

    Hi, I am having a problem with my 6n2 which has been happening for a while now.The car is only being used at the weekends now as the wife has unfortunately had a stroke and her licence has been revoked,anyway i intend to keep the car until she gets her licence back at the end of the year hopefully . With the car standing so long i have been getting starting problems which i initially though was the battery discharging because of lack of use.Anyway i replaced the Battery with lion 40 amh brand new one from ECP as recommended by them on the website but after a week its as flat as a tod.I have replaced the Voltage Regulator on the Alternator and replaced the Coil Pack as this had cracks underneath it. The question is would the battery drain that much after only a week .The car runs well once its started.???Any ideas anyone .
  5. Went to the car wash earlier on, came out from there to Asda which is literally 500 mtrs up the road,did some shopping went back to the car and it wouldn't start,so called AA out,Guy said that it wasn't anything to do with the car wash but a spontaneous thing to happen.He took a plug out to see if there was a spark and nothing zilch.So anyway just got towed back to my home.???Does anyone one here have a clue as to what has happened with the car. Any answers on this would be great as i need my car for work on monday.
  6. Hello again. With clearly the most malody ridden polo! So few days ago it wouldnt start managed to coax it to life after a good 10sec of starter motor and full gas it started coughing....slowly. Then it has been fine since. Then yesterdsy did it again but started alot easier. Then today. Tosay it needed a push start and took us a good 45min to get it going. Now i notice the thermostat seems to not be working on dash. And before all of this my 02 sensor is still needing replacement. Is any of this related or is my car just a lemon. Thank you again!!!!!
  7. I'm starting to notice my 2009 9N3 sometimes has trouble starting. It did sit for a while and is now only starting to get used but sometimes I'm turning the key and it just turns but doesn't fire but always starts on the second attempt. I've rear horror stories online from 2007/2008 and on about the 1.2 12v having timing chain slip issues and a revised kit being available however my car is a late (09 Plate) model that was clearly manufactured after this issue being known. Could it still be the case? I hear that the timing can be checked with VCDS which my mate has, should I explore that? I did also have this issue with the idle yesterday - revs were dropping very low when stopped at lights but that seems to have stopped for now. Not sure if it's related. Car only has 52K on the clock.
  8. Hi I recently brought a 6n2 1.4 tdi polo, had massive problems with starting the car, turns out it was the battery as it was only 40ah battery! So I got that replaced and everything was fine, but recently it's doing the same, it just cranks over fast but doesn't fire, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't or it starts then dies about 2 seconds later and flashes up a battery light icon, I changed the fuel filter when I done the battery, any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you
