Run scanner for trouble codes, some auto parts stores will do this for free, all electrical connections should be disconnected, dried, cleaned and coated with dielectric compound, change all fluids

Bad coolant temp sensor--makes ECU think engine is still cold so sends too long injector pulse flooding engine. Very common, and easy fix.

Carb overflowing on 1990 vw polo


Pull the carburetor off and rebuilt it, the float is stick or the fuel inlet valve is defective. The carb kits come with full rebuilding instructions, but if you have never done a carby overhaul it is best left to a professional.

Hi i hit my mark 3 vw golf into a ditch and now the left hand side wheel is bent and possibly the ball joint or drive shaft. Will i be able to use parts from a vw polo of similar age. Will the vw polo...


Simple answer: No. Polos and Golfs use different mechanical components.

More complicated answer: If there is that much damage then the bodyshell mountings are also quite likely to be distorted which will make any repair attempt futile. Ideally you must get the damaged parts stripped off and then get the mounting points accurately measured. This can only be done using specialised measuring equipment. The alternative is to invest in the parts needed for your repair and to fit them with an immediate alignment check at the nearest suitably equipped garage. If the alignment of the body is off then the car is effectively a write off as repairs will exceed the car value.

Vw polo maintains engine revs when foot is off the accelerator.


You need to check the cable the runs from the gas pedal to the engine, it might be rusty and need some drops of penetrating oil at the point it meets with the engine accelerator valve.

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off


Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
