Heater Blower fault for Polo


this sound like the fan motor itself. remove the blower fan from the car(its on the passenger side below the glove compartment) and bench test it to see if its straining or maybe something jamming it. not uncommon to get a bunch of leaves in there or i have seen nests once or twice.

If its the electronic unit,check the main fuses near the battery,also check the wiring connectors at the powersteering pump for loose or corroded plugs.If alls ok,you will need a diagnostic machine to read out what trouble codes are in the units memory.good luck.

Vw polo car wont start


try disconecting the coolant temp sensor and then try, it may be faulty, also check the hall sender unit in the distributor, if it has one, the centre pin should be the signal wire if no pulse is present the sensor is faulty

Sequence for spark plug leads on a vw polo 1.4 1996


Hello darren625, the firing order will be 1-3-4-2, #1 will be at the front of the block,I am not familiar with volks wagon but you can disconnect the power (to be safe) turn the engine over by hand with plugs out for ease use a piece of stiff wire or small screwdriver in the #1 plug hole and you will feel the piston come up make sure it is on the compression stroke (you will feel air escape) when it is at the top before it starts to travel down that will be tdc (top dead center) the rotor will now be in line with #1 connect wires as per firing order and you should be good to go,hope this helps, good luck

VW POLO 1.6 2002 classic


I have already a solution to my problem. Remember, when I posted, that my 1997 VW Polo Classic, that it won't start even it has sparks coming from the "spark plugs" and the timing was set already. Yesterday, My mechanic was puzzled, why the intake manifold has a very low pressure. Just this morning when he opened. It was clogged with "tartar" like material. It includes the valve & piston. Therefore, it is impossible to have combustion. Because, it lacks the fuel & air even how much sparks is present. I hope this could help to VW cars owners having the same trouble.
