Do you hear the fuel pump cut off? Once your pump reaches pressure it should cut off. Also you can try and remove your fuel cap and see if the car will run just know it could cause your check engine light to come on so do not run it very long. If it continues to run with fuel cap off I would say it is your fuel pump. Good luck with that and the best thing to do is get a fuel pressure gadge and see what kind of fuel pressure you are running. I know there are some parts houses that will loan or rent you tools. Good luck.

Take it to the dealer if you can't afford it buy parts then you to worry about labor. No second guessing your car is your life that brings you to work and everywhere you treat it like dirt it's going treat you like dirt.

Polo classic wont start

Try turning the key on and off several times. Do not turn the engine over, just on and off. You will need someone to stand with their ear close to the "open" gas filler tube. What they should hear is a quiet buzzing sound that cycles about one second long then stops. This should happen at at least two of the key turns. If nothing is heard you may need a fuel system fuse or a new fuel pump.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down

try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

Ok here is a little trick my dad taught me, turn the key til the battery starts but not the engine, so right before it turns over, do it 12-15 times and then try starting it, if it works then the fuel pump may be bad..
