I HAVE A 2000 VW POLO 1.6CL , PETROL, MANUAL. LAST ONE WEEK WHEN COLD IN THE MORNING, ENGINE CUTTING OUT WHILE STARTING THE CAR , It can be started, when cold, only by giving a bit of acceleration. Even when once started it gets cut out while changing gears at slow speed for about quarter of a mile after which the car goes without any problem.

cheapest thing to try is the temp. sensor about E20 its under the distrubitor 4 wires in one plug then a clip to take out the sensor, if that dont work try to get a lend of a throttle body and change it to see if that works before buying one as they are dear. hope thats some help
on the fuel injection rail there's a little round silver vacume thingy put your tumb on it and push whilst some one starts the car. that is if this happends when you start the car and when you try to press the accelerator the car cuts out. i have a '00 polo and this happened me! hopefully this helps.:-)
My polo 1.4i 2003 model when i start the engines it does but starts to work only three cylinder i suppose. What can i do? Will be the plugs problems? or the ignition coil? Please tell what I have to do now.
Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.
By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
Hello, VW polos 1.0, 1.4. 1.6, suffer from carbon bulid up in the throttle bodys causing bad idling, esp the Bosch Mono-Motronic (Throttle Body Injection systems), a good clean with carb cleaner should repair the problem, also engine temp sensor replacement and idle speed control valve replacement can help idle problems.
