    Mine is a 2002 Polo Classic, but problem seems similar. Strangely enough the car usually starts in one go at first ignition in the morning, but we're struggling to get it going after its first or second run. It eventually does start without kickstarting, but it may take several minutes. The car is not used on an everyday basis (app. 3 days a week) and has 146000 km on the clock. Car is parked at app 1000m altitude in a garage. I just replaced battery and clamp, but no improvements. Spark plugs seem to be OK. Vehicle has not been driven hard.

Try disconecting the coolant temp sensor and then try, it may be faulty, also check the hall sender unit in the distributor, if it has one, the centre pin should be the signal wire if no pulse is present the sensor is faulty

Vw polo electrical problem


the starting issue is probally down to the throttle housing being al carboned up.take it of and get it spotless,a toothbrush and some solvent is good.make sure you clean around where the butterly sits and the edges of the butterfly itself,dont just look from the top and think its looks ok take it off.
