Polo Coupe 1043,1992, Will not start, can be bumped started, sometimes!!, theres a strange clicking noise from under the air box, when the ignition is on and sometimes the oil pressure light comes on when the car gets upto temperature, then I lose all power and then the engine cuts out. I've recently changed the dizzy cap, rotor arm and battery, all the leads are new ish along with the spark plugs. The previous owner has changed the head and done all that, leaving much of the engine loom unlagged and bare. Could this cause a problem on some of the electrical systems?

if you have a Digital Voltmeter hook it up to the battery , turn the car on and see how many volts its putting out with and without accessories. As a guide line 13.5 to 14.5 volts anything below these numbers the alternator or the wiring behind it is faulty. if the voltage is highrer than approx 14.5 volts its the voltage regulator(which is the worse of two evils)
replace this asap either way. Whomever does the replacement should check out the battery. These cars are very sensitive IF YOUR GOING AFTERMARKET ON THE REGULATOR MAKE SURE ITS CARRIES THE AMPS NEEDED TO RUN YOUR VEHICLE.
