The bottle is for engine coolant. If you fill the bottle half way you should be OK. After driving the vehicle and it has cooled down, check the level. As long as there is fluid in the bottle and the temp. does not rise past mid range, your in the clear. If the level keeps going down after a few drives, check for coolant leaks and repair if any are found.

SOURCE: MISFIRING ON CYLINDER 1 VW POLO 1.4 3CYLINDER

I have changed a few cylinder heads under warranty for this type of problem. The exhaust valve guides wear, this causes the exhaust valve to seat badly, giving low compression. if one cylinder compresion reading is more than about 50 psi below the others, then this warrants head removal. It is quite a job, due to the fact that the camshft id chain driven. If you are up for it then once the head is removed, poor liquid into the exhaust ports and see if it leaks out through any of the exhaust valves.

SOURCE: Which engine oil? vw polo 51 reg

The VW specs for oil is way over-hyped.

Use a Brand Name Full Synthetic 10W40 oil and you'll be OK.

Did you check the oil cooling filter...??? , that's the only thing I'd imagine , otherwise you may have a very small leak on the engine gaskets...

SOURCE: Have a strange humming noise that can be heard

Hi:
Often "humming" noises like what you are experiencing are caused by a failing bearing somewhere. Some usual suspects are wheel bearings, alternator bearings, and sometimes even your waterpump, but usually it starts leaking too. To start narrowing down what it is, have someone ride with you to see if the noise is coming from left side or right side, or engine area, then see if it happens when the car is not moving, or just when the drive wheels are pulling the car? This way , hopefully you can pin point the culprit!

Engine revs on its own! vw polo


There are many number of reasons for this problem...but a VERY common one is a faulty thermo sensor which controls air / fuel ratio.
