What is your engine code? (3 letters)

What fault code is present?

If still crank signal then it could be the dual mass flywheel at fault.

It may mean a glow plug fault or a brake light switch fault. You need computer software to interrogate the engine management.

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.

My 1999 VW Polo oil pressure warning light and buzzer comes on regularly after driving for approx 8 miles - oil level & pressure both appear to be ok and water level too. Both sensors replaced and new...


The oil pump is relatively easy to change with the engine in situ if it is (commonly) at fault,
Get an oil pressure gauge with a pipe and brass fitting ready on, (borrow or buy cheap from boy racer shop), unscrew the sensor (or ask the garage to for a £5) and plug it directly into the sensor hole after you've been for a run.. When warm, mine sits about 40 at motorway speeds, ten at tickover.

My engine management light comes on then disappears for days then comes back. I took it the garage and he said it was a P0116 fault, any ideas on what this means an how to fix it, many thanks guys : ) its...


Im guessing it is a jetta? I never heard of a polo. BUT the guy at the garage obviously didnt help you out very much except scanned for codes. ANYWAY.... P0116 means Engine Coolant Circuit Range/Performance. I recommend checking engine coolant temp[ECT] sensor G62. It probably needs to be replaced. And a coolant flush would probably be good to

I have a 2002 VW POLO 1.2 The engine management light came on and the car started to ?shake? on start up until some revs were applied and then returned to normal. Took it in to the garage and they said...


i also have a 2002 VW Polo 1.2, which I bought in January this year. The first time i drove it the engine management light came on. I took it to a garage and they changed a sensor in the exhaust system at a cost of £350. I drove the car again the following week and the light came on again, I took it to the same garage and they told me it was unrelated and that i needed another £300 repair. Refusing this I took the car to my parents mechanic who told me that these lights are prone to coming at the slightest little thing and to ignore it if the car is driving fine and sounds normal. He said that if there was a genuine problem that you wouldn't need the light to tell you but that the problem would be obvious through the sound it made or by the way the car started to drive. He said he felt the sensors were over sensitive and were there largely to encourage owners to take their cars into the garage for expensive repairs which didn't need doing.
He told me to drive the car as normal and ignore the light. He said only take it to a garage if there is an obvious problem, otherwise I was wasting my time and money.
I now drive the car without worrying abou the light and so far I haven't had any problems.
Suggest you do the same.
