T reg Polo for sale. I've had it for seven years and it has served me wonderfully.
Last month started revving up for no reason and every so often it doesn't want to start. It's been checked by RAC recommended garage but they couldn't find an exact fault. Had it checked again and possibly great box fault.
Cannot afford the fix, hence offered as a repair if possible or spare parts as a last resort. I would love to have someone fix it as it is a nice little car that could be used as a first car.
Price offers welcome. If no offers made I will advertise elsewhere.
driving the other day and suddenly I lossed all power, 'EPC' light lit up on the dashboard and exhaust was smoking (White) pretty badly. Turned the car off, 30 seconds later turned the car on and it was running fine? No light on the dash, no smoke, no power loss, so just continued on.
Wasn't hammering it or anything, was just normal driving when this was happening.
Car is stage 2 so has a lot of different mods.
any ideas what it could be?
The car has unfortunately been standing for 3 years as I had intended to sort it out.
Before I left it to stand, it had: a new exhaust, new fuel filter and new front tyre (passenger side). There's still a bit of air left in the new one so it might be okay. Had intermittent starting issue, was told it was probably fuel pump relay. When it did work it pulled fine, no problems found with engine itself.
I cannot currently get it to start, and on quick inspection there is no power going to fuel pump so relay is gone. Body work is in very good condition, passenger chair has some surface mould but nothing too bad.
It could easily be fixed and cleaned up. Was well looked after before I left it. 2 previous owners, my sister owned it before me.
Offers welcome, I'm hoping to sell this week.
Hi guys a friend of mine is after a 6n2 TDI/GTI rear axle for a conversion on a jetta so wanting it for stub axles/carriers/callipers etc. If any one has one could you put some pictures in here or PM me and let me know a price/location.
I have an old VW Polo 1.4 TDI (2001) that's been sitting unused for over 3 years now (I know.. life just got a bit crazy).
The reason I didn't sell it the moment I got a new car is : -
There was an intermittent starting issue which I spent a fair bit of money getting looked at but it never got fixed. Eventually the MOT guy said it's probably the fuel pump relay as he's seen it before with these cars. There was an intermittent indicator stalk issue where smoke would come out of it! Again, it was looked at but never fixed.. I couldn't sell it in good conscience like that. What if it caught on fire and someone got hurt! I'd still feel guilty even if I explained the problem on sale.
Annoyingly I did prep it for sale just before I left it to rot: I put on a new tyre, and a new exhaust, and cleaned it up.
Now it has the usual problems associated with being left.. It's gone a little bit mouldy here and there inside, moss on the windows, and the brakes look a bit rusty.
I have a few choices from what I can tell : -
1) There's a guy that keeps knocking at my door from "MC Motors", who has offered me £100 for it. He just wants to cut it up and scrap it.
2) Replace the battery, get the engine going and advertise it for sale with the problems listed.
3) Replace the battery, get the engine going, pump the tyres up and try and get the 2 issues fixed, then put it up for sale.
4) Just try and sell as it, either on eBay or the classifieds here.
I really am not sure what to do. A part of me wants to just take the £100 and be done with it, but I know the engine works and it might make a nice little run about for someone, and I could perhaps earn a bit more from it... Though I might be deluded
The frustrating thing is I know with a bit of TLC it could be a nice car - the body work is fine, and it never really had any other problems while it was in regular use.
I did try and jump start it recently off of my car, but it wouldn't turn over! I was told it is probably because the VW's battery is knackered and sapping the power, also my new car is petrol and I think the battery doesn't have as much kick as a battery for a diesel..?
Any help would be much appreciated. I'm in Leicester if anyone wants to take a look.
