Hi there can anyone tell me where I can get pictures of the timing marks on a polo 1.6i 2001 model. I had coil problems and never new about it. Then I though its timing and checked the timing, it seemed to be wrong but now when I set the cam on the t/o mark and piston 1 tdc and the rotar so that it starts to spark on nr 1. Now I don't have any power at all and the car is using 1.5l petrol on 200m. Please if any one will can help me I will realy appreciate it.

Polo 1.6 not a problem ,right use a long thin screwdriver to locate no1 TDC then remove the rocker cover and look at the valves and the positions this is a single cam engine so with no1 at tdc look at the valves and see the positions and what you should see is inlet just closed and pointing to the left and the exhaust pointing in much the same position to the right ,now if this engine is the one iam thinking of then the timing mark is on the belt and it wears off ,you fit a new belt ans on the new belt are the timing marks that have to line up on the bottom pulley and on the cam ,its the system porsche engine with a alloy rounded sort of rocker cover ,now how many of these have i done and i still dont remember every type i work on ,comes with old age i suppose ,anyway with the cover off check the valves and if i remember rightly their is a square sor of limp on the cam just behind no1 cylinder and this lines up with a sensor or something on the head casing at the back of the engine have a good look first before you move anything though we do not want crunched valves ,if touching the cam belt for any reason always turn engine round twice on the bottom pulley by hand with all the plugs out so you know your not hitting anything .These engines do like a nice head gasket though every 120.000kms or so ,never mind the specs like new head bolts use the old ones and dont forget to squeeze the oil out of the hydraulic tappets ,grind the valves in a bit clean the ports and away it goes for another few years trouble free ,i always clean the head and block face up with a flat bed sander and medium grit paper with oil on it ,dont go mad on the head with it though.I normally get about one a month to do as it is a weak spot on this type of engine as they do go between cylinders or they leak oil out the side of the head which is a vehicle test failure

Hi Val,first of all the gearboxes for all vw are made in the same factory in germany and if one model of car was giving trouble the whole range would suffer.i.e.SEAT/SKODA/AUDI/VW.I have not heard of any specific cars giving trouble.but to answer your problem,get the linkage checked by a dealer as these tend to wear and a specific tool is required to set them up properly.and while they are under the car get them to change the oil for the gearbox.you do not need to get a NEW gearbox as a reconditioned one is MUCH cheaper.if you want to down that road.(you will still need to get the linkage set up).
hope this sorts it out for you.regards. geoff,England.
