Hello fellow polo fans, I have a Polo 6n2 1.0 from the 2000 with a really long cold start problems. Sometimes I have to try 7 or 10 times for it to finally start. But the thing is that it ONLY happens when the engine is cold. If it's warm, it starts right up like new. I can also feel the acceleration hesitate (like there's a delay in acceleration that suddenly picks up fast) when I start to drive away and the engine is still cold. The car has had this problem since I bought it 4 years ago, but it used to be just around 2 or 3 attemps before it would start. Lately it's just become worse and int
I was cleaning up the throttle body ahead of the MOT and noticed that the stop screw for the throttle cable pull (pictured) never actually comes in contact with the plate that meets it. I assume its there to act as an adjustment for where the throttle would stop - wouldn't this count as an idle throttle adjustment? The engine rattles along at 800rpm at idle so I assume nothing is out of the ordinary here, but what is it actually supposed to be for?
So I'm gathering parts for my AFH conversion on my 1.4 6N. Today I picked up a throttle body for a good price (in my country). When i went home, i realized that *something* inside is hitting the plastic housing on the side (see attached image). It sounds like some small part is sliding on an axle. It is not loose in the sense that it rattles around every time I move it, but rather it hits the housing every time I tilt it to the left. Is this normal? Should I return it?
Hi everybody, I am collecting parts to build a 1.4 abd engine with 3f upgrades (intake, wire loom, injectors, ecu and camshaft) Trying to find a 3f throttle body, which is pretty hard to do. Am planning to put a 268 camshaft and 180 ml injectors in, in the future. So a slighty bigger diametre throttle body might come in handy. So are there any oem throttle bodys that anybody knows of, that might be a upgrade to the 3f one?
Hi, apologies if this is the wrong section of the forum (im new to posting here, long time lurker) i have a polo 9n 1.2 3 cylinder, i have heard that it is possible to swap the throttle bodies from that of a mk4 golf, is there a specific engine size from the golf that i need to get it from or will they all fit, i dont know if the golfs use a universal size or they change with engine size which i assume, any help will be appreciated. also i have had trouble of finding exhaust systems that will fit the car, i have a quote of 150 to get a custom backbox made by hand, however
