I have a 1987 MK 2 Golf and because of the age of the engine I use a multi grade SAE 20 W 50 body oil (Not synthetic) . I however live in the tropics so I can get away with that. If you live in the temperate region you could use a multigrade oil like 10 W 30.
Please note that the lower the temperature where you might live the lower should be the first number....for example if your temperatures go down to 5 degrees Celsius then you may want to get a lower rating like 5 W 30.
You can also confirm this at the service station and see what might be the best grade of oil to use.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem


Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery


Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)

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.
