SOURCE: vw polo 1.4 tdi idle problem

Hey.. i just had this exact problem in my GTI and after 2 weeks of trial and error, I had to replace my Coolant Temp Sensor.. it was bad so it threw off the fuel metering valve which was part of the crazy idling problem.. I cant be 100% sure because our cars are not exactly the same but I mean we have the EXACT same symptoms so .. justa suggestion. Use the VAG-COM sensor reader and you'll be golden.

Hi,
Wow...good one, need to know what model and year also I strongly suggest you buy a diagnostic tool (around 50$ in Canada at Canadian Tire) which you can just plug in a connector in you car (under dash on driver side..easy..) especially if you are into used car, not only it will save you money in the long run but you will have a good idea about where the problem is located and won`t get screwed around when you go to a garage for repairs....believe me!, I bought one and would not let it go!.

thks,

SOURCE: VW Polo Classic 1997 IDLE Problems

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.

SOURCE: VW POLO 1.6 2002 classic

I have already a solution to my problem. Remember, when I posted, that my 1997 VW Polo Classic, that it won't start even it has sparks coming from the "spark plugs" and the timing was set already. Yesterday, My mechanic was puzzled, why the intake manifold has a very low pressure. Just this morning when he opened. It was clogged with "tartar" like material. It includes the valve & piston. Therefore, it is impossible to have combustion. Because, it lacks the fuel & air even how much sparks is present. I hope this could help to VW cars owners having the same trouble.

I have a polo classic 1.6 2002 model. Its smoking after idling for a while. On a start up it doesn't.


It depends on the type of smoke flowing from the exhaust. It will be either burnt oil smoke or burnt coolant smoke which is lighter in colour.

Check to see if you are losing radiator coolant with no sign of any external fluid leak. If so and you have light coloured smoke from the exhaust you probably have a coolant leak into a combustion chamber(s) by way of a blown head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head. This can be checked by a leak down test on each cylinder (A prior check of compression will show if you have any compression leakage on any cylinder but not the leak source).

SMELLY EXAUST FUMES, NO EXAUST FUME COLOR


I am assuming that it smells like sulfur or rotten eggs. This is a bad tank of gas. Put a bottle of octane booster in the fuel tank and don't buy cheap gas again.

My 2001 1.6l Polo classic won't start. The oil


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-COM or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM.

Hi.my 1999 vw polo classic 1.4i is blowing oil with pressure from the o-ring on the oil filter. just finished overhauling the engine. didnt replace the oil pump though.have resorted to replacing the entire...


First check and see if the seal on the filter lines up right. Use your filter wrench to snug the filter a little extra. Try to put a manuel oil presure gauge on it. If this fails Im assuming having just rebuilt the engine you have a manuel. Check it out and find out where your oil pressure regulator is. Its probably sticking.

Roaring engine when i hit the gas and noticably much louder even when i just start it and it idles? help a girl out! this is for a 1999 beetle with 125,000 miles


This sounds like you have a crack or a hole in your exhaust pipe. It must be somewhere before the muffler or you would not have noticed it.
You will have to put the car up on ramps or a lift in order to safely get under it and locate the problem. Do NOT get under a vehicle that is lifted with only a jack. This is extremely dangerous.
Many auto parts stores sell an exhaust repair kit for a couple of bucks. Don't bother with the 1 with the pouch of chemicals. That kit is too messy and unreliable. I prefer the kit with a single rolled up strip of what looks like rubber. Just follow the kit's instructions.
You may have to start the car to locate the problem. Just try to be quick under there. The pipe will quickly get too hot to work with and the fumes in your face are not pleasant. Good luck

I have a 2000 volvo S70 i smell fumes in side car when driving went to get exhaust checked no problem there what can the problem be?


What type of fumes are they exhaust or oil burning.
Exhaust ..Idle engine and put glove on hand put hand over the tail pipe and if engine stops in 20 seconds then the exhaust is good if it keeps running then its the exhaust is your problem..
2 if ex ok then its due to the breather pipe on the engine and it should go back into the inlet manifold to be reburnt but if its not fitted or rubber hose split or broken then thats what you can smell.
So check out under the bonnet and see if you can smell or see any smokey fumes or sucking noise.
Can you see smoke when you start engine.
Let me know ASAP Ron

Overheating


I think you have made a correct diagnosis. The loss of power and water from exhaust all point that way.
