SOURCE: 1997 Polo classic switches off

The first two things I would check would be for vacuum leaks. (Dry-rotted vacuum hoses, fittings, etc.) Another thing you'll want to check is your EGR valve. When an EGR valve sticks open, it will allow exhaust gases to enter the intake, causing rough idle and sometimes stalls. While the engine is running, tap on the EGR valve gently with the ****-end of a screwdriver and see if the problem clears up.

Being this old of a car, I'm willing to bet it's a vacuum leak, but you're the one with your eyes on it. :)

Good luck and I hope this helps! :)

You need to clean the throttle body with carburator cleaner.

First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment (VAS, VAG-COM or similar) connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM.

My car, polo 1.6 2003 starts den dies almost immediately


why does the blue box say 2005 swift and 03 polo?, confusing , so I will answer in the generic. (any modern car)

any engine dies for vast reasons, I have a list of 50 .
but breaks down to 4. (in pure physics) Otto cycle engines, GAS.

1: lost DC 12volt power to the EFI system( electronic fuel injection)
2: lost compression on more or all cylinders, 150psi min. is a goal.
3: lost spark, weak spark or mal-timed spark.
4: bad fueling, (too little , or too rich fuel injection)

The ECU works hard to sustain running, via idle speed control valve
and spark timing tricks.
when the above 4 go bad, the ISC function fails and the engine
stalls.
so does, skipping 60,000 mile tuneups. that cause any of the 4.

Where is the idle speed control valve on vw polo 1998 classic located


There is no idle speed control vale if it is Bosch mono motronic. idle speed is controlled by throttle actuator, ( electric motor) that is on the left hand side of the throttle body.

I have a 2001 VW Polo 1.6 classic. My speedometer would often cut out and stop working, now my entire dashboard is dead, (including the digital odometer which is stuck) even my indicator lights don't work....


Sometimes when the spark plug cables are dying (or are from a lousy manufacturer) it affects the dashboard. Happened to me when i had a 97 Polo, check that, it could be the same problem.

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.

Car stalls while driving and occasioinally while at idle.


THERE COULD BE MANY CAUSES OF THIS, BUT THE FIRST THING I WOULD CHECK IS THE BATTERY, CHECK ITS GETTING FULL CHARGE, AND MORE IMPORTANT KEEPING IT. AFTER THAT I WOULD CHECK THE FUEL PUMP, AND RELAYS, AN INTERMITTENT PUMP CAN CAUSE IT TOO. IF NONE OF THIS HELPS COME BACK.

VW Polo Classic 1997 IDLE Problems


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.
