Re: Stalling in cold start

Hmm I haven't had that happen before Can you hear the fuel pump prime before you start it? The fuel pump solenoid is under the dash near the fuse box, I've heard they can fail sometimes, you can usually hear them click if you stick your head under there when you turn the key How quickly does it stall?

Re: Smokey

That's alright then haha, mine is my daily so it's more of an issue because I don't want to have to get rid of it as I've had it quite a long time now but this engine being a bit of a s**t has left me feeling a bit disappointed I really don't want to have to use my other car all the time, especially...

Re: Smokey

Nice haha, I'd never heard of that before until I saw the video haha

What's the next plan of action for your engine then? Guessing it's not your daily?

Re: Smokey

Yeah I did see a couple of videos on YouTube of people using that tool, it didn't look to bad, just quite fiddly. I'm tempted to give it a go soon and see if it fixes the problem, I'll be pretty annoyed if it doesn't though haha I wish I'd thought of doing all this when I had all belts and cam cover...

Re: Smokey

Haha the puddle was massive and it was about 2am on a dark country road Oh ok, sounds easier just to fit another engine. Yeah I wouldn't have the balls to even attempt doing anything to the cylinders haha Yeah I took all the plugs out about a month ago (they're brand new) and they were all very blac...

Re: Smokey

Ah ok so a compression test probably isn't gonna help much then. It's going through oil at quite a rate and I'm gonna have to buy more to keep topping it up. Yeah maybe the seals dry out when the engine has been out of the car, however my polo sat for 3 years without running and never had any issues...

Re: Smokey

Just read your thread and you really have had a lot of trouble, I don't know how you haven't given up haha I haven't had anyone follow me so I don't really know what it does. Like I said, it smokes if I rev it up and I've occasionally seen smoke when I boot it. Yeah buying unknown parts is a nightma...

Re: Smokey

Race me to prove it......yeah why not haha Thanks for the reply mate Do you have smoke when you rev the car or if you give it the beans? I'm hoping it's the seals but I don't wanna go to all the trouble of sorting that out if the problem is the piston rings. I don't know if there's a way of telling ...

Smokey

Hi all, I recently put a new (used) AVY engine in my GTi and have noticed on start up it spits out dark stuff and where ever I park it will leave a black patch where my exhaust points down. If I rev the car up it will be quite smokey and smelly. When I put my foot down the car feels fairly normal bu...

Re: Rocker gasket

Hi, thanks for the reply, so the loctite is what you would recommend for resealing the rocker cover?

I've done lots of googling and watching YouTube videos of similar engines from 1.6 16v golfs etc and it doesn't look too hard

Rocker gasket

Hi all

I'm planning on changing the cambelt etc on my 6n2 GTi engine. How much more work is it to remove the rocker cover and re seal it as I believe it's all kind of built together? Am I able to keep the timing in place if I remove the rocker cover? Thanks
