Where is he buying the pump from??are the shops charging you "a womans price"(horrible practice)....call a VW dealer and get a price from them,then decide which is best for you.Skoda/Seat/VW/Audi fuel pumps ARE the same.and to fit you take off the floor plate in the boot(trunk)and you will see the cover on top of the tank......

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.

Screen washers will not work on my vw polo 61reg fuse has gone. where is the screen wash fuse in a vw polo 61 reg?


I really doubt the problem is a fuse. More likely the pump is defective or plugged or the washer switch is defective, use a test light and problem the connector to see if it lights when the washer is activated by the switch. If it was a fuse it will just blow again. Fuses blow for reason that is a shorted circuit.

OVER FUELLING ON VW POLO 1.6i. CAR STARTS ONCE HOT DOES NOT START


Backfire means timing is off and unburnt fuel mixture explodes either from compression or a hot exhaust system. Black smoke could mean the fuel mixture is too rich. A metering component is not functioning and sending wrong data correcting the air/fuel ratio.

It appears the fuel pump has gone bad. How much will it cost to replace this?


Call a few shops in your area, be sure to quote that you want a "Motorcraft" or "Delphi" fuel pump. Most aftermarket pumps are not good quality. Do not buy pumps from ottozoon or other cheapo parts stores.

Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.
