Re: Where to Buy parts? Midrand area?

I suspect there should be a goldwagen. Why not mail them and order the parts with you saying you are coming at that time and see if they can help you out.

Re: 2003 caravelle t4 2.5tdi

Not rebuilt. Remove and fit another. And the two platforms are extremly different although the base motor is the same. But changing to amdiferent engine with a different cylinder count is extremly hard these days. There are several other controllers that wants to talk to the engine module and they u...

That will be anhuge undertaking and making the management systems talk to each other again will be massively challenging. I Suggest you keep looking for the right motor.

Re: VW Polo Vivo 1.4 55KW - First tank fuel consumption- Normal?

It varies hugely. Some will be done in no time at all and other will take forever. So without having checked every individual car out there you can't say it will be done in 2km. My v10 s6 does not reach operating temp before I have gone 15km. It takes 14l of water and has th main radiator and two a...

Re: 1991 Golf 1 1.3 Carb Starting Problems

Move the module covering up will just make it overheat
When it just swings check if there is spark
Check if the fan runs when the engine is operating at temperature. Not all of them run after the ignition is off.

Re: VW 2011 polo vivo 1.6 mods

1) software if there is anybody that offer it for your car will do very little. Becuase you car is naturally aspirated itnis not a simple case of turning the boost up which is what most 'software' does The normal way for naturally aspirated is head gas flowing, camshafts with longer duartion and fre...

Re: Citi leaking fuel

Sounds like the fuel pump that is leaking. It is r ally simple to changebthose on your car but first make sure it is not just a loose clamp or pipe journal before splashing out on a pump.

Re: Blow-Through and Draw-Though systems

I can tune carbs and still prefer injection. No matter how you look at a carb it is a linear device. So there are always a point where you cannot fix the fuelling when you make another point correct. So no matter how good anybody is the simple mechanics and physics of the tool younare using preclude...

Consumption numbers are always vwry diffucult to pin down. There are three things which has a very heavy impact on whatbdifferent people will get. 1) total trip distance. When you start a car from cold it will be in cold enrichment mode. It take around at least 8km to get out of that.. If your trips...

Turn the sliding button next to the light switch. It is the dimmer control and will make it brighter.
It is called a citi golf. Mk1 was not made since 1983.

Re: Coolant flush on polo 9n3

Do not change just the housing on those cars, also change the crack pipemthat runs from the pump behind the head to the housing.
It is very easy if you remove the intake manifold.(which is really easy to do as well)
