SOURCE: MY VW LUPO IS HUNTING

The hunting and clicking is caused by a stuck vapor canister purge valve. The valve is on a vacume line. When it gets stuck open too much air enters the engine at idle or low rpm. This will cause the engine to hunt and stall as soon as any load is put on it if you do not rev it hard. The engine will over-run when coming to a stop and probably stall. It can come and go putting the chack light on. The quick fix is to just un-plug the solenoid. facing the enginebay it is located on the left hand side just infront of the suspention mount it is half balck half blue on every lupo i have seen. unpluging it will mean the car is driveable again but the check light does come on. It is 100% safe as long as nothing else happens that goes undetected because the light is already on. The part is about £70/80 from VW,  they may or may not know what you are talking about but i would not bother going to VW. The part is easy to find at a scrapyards if there are Lupos / Polos.  A number of other VAG cars share the part as well.  Any other problems come along to clublupo.co.uk

SOURCE: How often should be changed the distribution belt

Hey , the timing belt should be changed every 90.000 km. It is mandatory to change at least once all the parts that are involved in the process. You should change the water pump and the spanndampfer (i don't know the english term) and the tensioner and the little guiding role. While doing this you must refill the engine coolant that will be lost by removing and refeting the water pump. I used HEPU , that should be diluated with distilated water (1 to 1). I used 1.5 Hepu engine coolant and 1.2 liters of distilated water , even though the manufacturer says that there are 5 liters used in the engine cooland , by removing the pump you will only lose about 2.5 liters of engine coolant. You can check the timing belt by removing it and bending it , if you see crack on it you should change it. I bought a complete kit from ebay with 221.5 euros. Good luck . mihai_farcas is my id , on yahoo , if you have any other questions , please ask.

Sometime unplugging sensors is a good way to find a bad one. If the incorrect reading is being supplied to the ecm, sometimes it can't tell.
When a sensor is disconnected, the ecm knows and uses a default value.
Obviously this doesn't work with the crank sensor.

One thing to check is the connector at the coolant resevoir. Sometimes coolant will migrate through the wires and cause all kinds of trouble.

Idling clatter on vw lupo


Hi

If this is the 3 cylinder Lupo then it could very well be the timing chain getting noisy.

Its around about a 3 to 4 hour job if I remember rightly, so at a VW main dealer labour costs would be over £200 ($400) plus around about £120 ($240) or so for the parts (chain and tensioner).

These are English prices though, so although I've put dollars in brackets, prices may still differ.

Just as a matter of interest, the main cause of chain stretch is lack of servicing, oil changes to be exact. If the service schedule is kept up then a timing chain will last several hundred thousand miles.

Very best regards
