Answer . Depends a lot on the model and age. Some of the three cylinder engines in the 02-onwards cars have had issues, these were brand new in 2002 and the designs have been modified since to fix some of the problems that have appeared. One big problem with the 1.2 engines is slippage of the tim…ing chain (the engines use a chain instead of a cam belt). In theory the chain is supposed to save on maintenance and never need replacing like an ordinary rubber cam belt, but in practice a problem with the tensioners meant that many of them slipped at around 40-50,000 miles, meaning the engines had to be stripped and rebuilt with new chains and modified tensioners. Be wary of any older (pre 2005) 1.2's that haven't had this work done. (MORE)
Setting the Clock on a Polo Here are recommendations and suggestions from FAQ Farmers: . On the 2003 you have the tripometer reset button on the dash under the speedometer. If you twist it left, the minutes will alter and right for the hours. I only realized this myself earlier today. . If you …look at the clock face you'll see that not all the screws are screws, I think two of them you can depress with a pen or similar to change the time. (MORE)
Answer . Probably needs the throttle body cleaned. A manual cleaning takes about an hour and is very simple if you have any mechanical knowledge. There is an article at www.trailvoy.com with picures made by one of the members.
I just had this happen on my 2004 Passat wagon. Dealer found that the cooling fan motor has failed and the AC goes into bypass becasue engine compartment temperatures are not controlled when idling. Once you begin driving, enough cool air enters to let the AC function again. Replacement fan motor ap…parently involved removing the front bumper! $700.00. KWB (MORE)
First, the rubber cover on the back of the bulb must be removed.Remove the connector, then loosen the torque screws. The lockingring can now be turned counter-clockwise in and the headlamp can betaken out.
Its not easy. I'm off to get mine done professionally... 1. Pop off the inside door handle, pull out the window controller 2. Unscrew the two bolts behind the window controller 3. unscrew the bolts under the door panel 4. pull the door panel off (it will snap off).... (I regret doing that b…it) 5. Unplug everything that is holding the door panel to the door frame Then you have to unscrew another panel to get the speakers. and then put it all together again.... Don't give it a go unless you know what you are doing (MORE)
Answer . hi. Remove the glove box under the steering wheel by pressing the clips at the left and right hand side of the open glove box. The fuse box is behind this.
To change the headlight bulb on a 2003 VW Polo you must firstremove the rubber cover from the back of the bulb. Pull off theconnector and loosen the 2 torque screws to allow the black plasticlocking to turn. Turn the locking ring counter-clockwise to removeand replace the bulb.
Possible causes . 1 bulb blown. 2 fuse blown. 3 open circuit in reverse light wiring. 4 bad earth contact on reverse light. 5 reverse light switch faulty. 6 indent in gear box fault causing switch not to operate.
under the steering wheel or possibly on passenger side on left hand drive?. You will find a glove compartment, it has clips in the side holding it up.. Un clip and pull all the way down to reveal fuse box. It is a long rectangle 1" high 4" long with cover. remove to reveal fuses.
The idle speed on a VW Polo is regulated by a Idle air controlvalve. The valve is located in the engine bay and can be adjustedthrough to either increase and lower the idle speed.
All the fuses need to be present in any car for it to workproperly. A Volkswagen Polo is no different. When a car is missinga fuse one or many of the components will not work properly.
First point of order is to check the coolant levels, check your service manual if you don't know where it is. If that's ok, you're water pump is likely to be faulty, if that's ok it'll be head gasket or an ecu problem. fan mite not be coming on to cool car down
Press the trip reset button and keep it depressed while you turn on the ignition. After about 10 sec the oil service warning will reset and you can let go of the button It depends of what model of Polo are you using. If your using a 1995 Polo Classic depress the trip reset button then turn on and o…ff the ignition for 3x then number 1 - 7 will appear choose a number then depress reset button again. (MORE)
The most likely answer is that the refrigerant in the AC system has slowly leaked out and can no longer work at low speeds.
You need to check and see if the cooling fans are coming on. If you have a fan clutch instead of fans then the fan clutch is possibly defective. \n. +++ More +++ When the A/C is on, it puts more load on the engine. You might have to step up the idle to compensate for the extra load and keep the e…ngine from overheating. It might also be that the coolant level may be low or not in the correct proportion antufreeze/water mix. Most manufacturers recommend a 50/50 solution. A loose belt could also present a problem by not spinning the water pump fast enough. (MORE)
88 vw cabriolet dies at idle unless the ac is on then it still idles too low Dealership can't repair?
i have a 91 cabriolet and have had what problem you have had, and it is simple, but depending on the pricing of the parts and how willing you are to work for it is the key. in the front of the engine compartment on the motor, there are two sensors, one is blue, one is black i think. the blue one tel…ls the computer how much gas to give it to keep it running, and if the sensor is not plugged all the way in and fastened properly, it will not run on a cold start. if your sensor is bad or not plugged in, it needs to be replaced. don't worry though, it is held in by a single retainer clip and it is only a single wire to it. pop it off, then take it to auto zone or make sure it is pushed in all the way. the simple solution is to press the gas while on idle and make the engine rev to about 2000 rpm. this is a safe output, so the car will warm up. hold it for about a a minute and a half.

What type of Polo are you using? Check the following: - Leaks - Radiator/ hose / Junction valves / water pump - Check water pump if you see water leaking coming from the engine block then your water pump is busted. - Try to squeeze the main hose after running for 15mins if hose becomes hard bec…ause of the pressure build up then the return portion of the radiator is clogged. Ask a mechanical to clean radiator. - Check if your water on the reservoir is over flowing or has too much water. pump out water by squeezing the hose like an ambu bag. you need to do that because water cannot flow, Polo has a close circuit cooling system. Pressure prevents it from cooling down. - If all of this above are ok then 2nd to the last is check water pump, it has a temp regulator that possibly needs to be changed or if you live in a tropical or fair weathered country then you can ask mechanic to take it out. - Still if everything fails, check color of oil if it still oil then good but when it turns out white then your engine needs a top overhaul. what happened? gasket has worn out and water mixes with oil making it white or curd like. - You might also want to check cylinder head alignment.

You need to check and see if the radiator is full. Do it when it is cold. If not, then fill it to the top and install the cap. Then be sure the coolant recovery tank is half filled. Start the engine and let it reach operating temperature. The cooling fans should come on. If not you will need to get …it repaired. When the air conditioner is on the engine cooling fan should also be running. If not then get it repaired. (MORE)
It could be the mass air flow meter located inside of the air intake system. Its a faily large black (usually) sensor that will usually cause the check engine light to appear. It cost about $200 plus from VW with $87/hour charge or you can get one aftermarket for about $70 and install it yourself. S…ometimes they go bad because of a bunch of grim taken in by the intake or if the intake went too long without being changed. I would suggest getting a new filter and (air) spray cleaning the meter first before buying one. (MORE)
in my 1998 the relay's r under the steering wheel behind the fuse's hope this helps
You have to remove engine first. Ä°ts easier from under the car. Attach the engine and gearox eachother and lift them to the inside, but be carefull about location, otherwise axles are gonna break...
Under The Car. Below The Engine And It Will Be A Fairly Obvious 15mm Nut That's Facing Out Towards The Back Of The Car.
take off the alvero cylinder, unclip the silver clip remove the black plastic backing, with force then follow these steps, take unit out, either replace or clean before asoditing.
Recommended coolant/ antifreeze for vw, audi, skoda, seat is G12. Very good coolant, helps, lubricates an works as a anti-corrosive serum.
Try buying a can of carb cleaner spray from somewhere. It comes in a aerosol from Halfords or similar. Get under the bonnet and with a Philips screwdriver access the area where the air filter is. http://www.volkswagenspares.com/UserFiles/Image/polo%204%20aqua%20engine%20(Custom)%20(2).JPG Its …the oval shaped black plastic bit towards the back. Once the cover is off you'll find the air filter and in the middle of it a metal pipe leading down into the engine. Inside this pipe is a valve that rotates when you press the accelerator allowing more into in. The pipe may appear dirty. When this gets grotty the valve doesn't work properly causing the car to stall even when the clutch is in sometimes. Spray the carb cleaner into this pipe and the dirt will wash away on its own. You can tidy up with a paper towel in the mouth of the pipe if you like. Then go and start the car. Run it on low revs for about a minute. Switch off the car. If they airfilter is minging, change it too. The area under the airfilter may have some oil sloshing around. It does no harm to clean ths up but is not a huge drama. Then put the covers back on with the screws, remembering some are long and some are short. Then to go back to where they came from. Hopefully that'll sort things out. Items needed; Philips screwdriver, carb cleaner spray, paper towel. Total cost of repair, less than Â£10. (MORE)
Many persons have tried leaving the car on for at least an hour, then turn on the radio and it will reset itself. If that doesnt work, it is best you find a VW dealership and give them you VW serial number and they will find a code for you radio that will be able to make it work.
Firstly you need your 4 digit pin code for the radio. On the screen where if shows safe, it will change to the number 1000, using the numbers 1 to 6 on your radio, punch in the pin code then press down on the centre of the arrows on the left hand side of the CD player and it will then reset your rad…io. It worked for me, hopefully it will work for others too. (MORE)
Step 1 - Remove the plastic trim around handbrake by pulling it up from the rear it will unclip. Step 2 - There is a 10mm nut you can turn this to adjust the handbrake. A good idea is to park on a flat and then see if the car can be easily pushed with the handbrake released. Step 3 Once the hand…brake is adjusted to the correct amount replace the trim and firmly push down on it so it clips back into place. If you find this method does not improve your hand brakes effectiveness you will need to get you rear calipers checked as they may be fualty. (MORE)
the answer is quite easy actually it falls into 3 catergories.timing is usually the first and best place to start,get a timing light and see where your timing is set,if it is outta time then correct it.secondly start by making sure your carbeurator is clean and operating the way it should be.is it d…elivering to much fuel or not enough make sure your fuel and air adjustments are correct especially on aftermarket carbs.and last but not least your camshaft,if it is an aftermarket cam and was installed professionally some cams are supposed to have a rough idle for instance.a crane cams energizer camshaft 272h thru 302h has a rough idle im using the 274h and atwith 274 degrees adv.duration and a gross lift of .450 degrees with an r.p.m range of about 1800-to 5800 i have a rough idle this is to be expected even if your an at home mechanic you should read about the cam you are using does it have smooth,good or rough idle they all work very efficently depending on your performance needs...

on most cars you can take off the complete handle and inside of the handle is the braking mechanism there is a screw with a cable attached to it in various fashions you tighten or loosen that screw until your brake is to your preference
Been looking for the answer myself, and it appears that it is the same engine that is found in the Jetta models. Try the following:. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2489995&postid=27536262. Good luck!!
It depends on the year. If its 99 or later chances are you'll need a local dealer to amend it.
The cam belt drives the cam, keeping it in time. If the cam beltbreaks, the engine not only will not run, but could be damaged.Make sure to change the belt at the recommended intervals.

Hi There, it depends how you use your clutch, Most people damage their clutch because of incorrect use of clutch. Always make sure when you apply brakes you press the bake pedal only, therefore be fore the rev counter reaches 10 then you can press your clutch pedal. That will assist your engine to …slow smoothly, just imagine pressing half clutch and hald break, the friction between your clutch plate and engine increases because the engine speed is still high, Just imagine doing that while you are doing 120Km/h, (MORE)
To change the radiator you first need to get access to it. . To gain access, you need to remove the front bumper. This means removing all screws on the bonnet sill, removing the screws from the front arches which connect the bumper to the body. and there is one screw under each of the indicators. o…nce the bumper is removed, ensure the lid from the expansion tank has been taken off, so you can drain the radiator. . To drain the radiator, loosen the jubilee clip of the lower hose and gently remove, ensuring all coolant falls into a clean container. Once drained, remove the upper hose, and the fan. There are then 4 screws to take out which hold the radiator in place. Remove these and your radiator will be loose and ready to remove. (MORE)
if recently did tune up check firing order for misfire on wires..check oxygen sensors or throttle position sensor..also possibly idle air control sensor
Has it had a chance to relearn its idle since disconnecting the battery cables ?
no. but you can make it fit. but you have to make alot of changes to the bumper and is load of work.

Freon level is low. May have a small leak. Will need to be charged to correct capacity. By the way, if someone pirated some 134 freon and serviced your system without the proper equipment they may have overserviced it which will cause the exact same affect as under serviced.

It can but usually it will just cause a severe drop in power. Try to run some injector cleaner through your gas tank to see if that corrects the problem.
