1991 VW Polo Stuttering Whilst Driving by [email protected]
So I was away for a week and since I've come back the car seems to stutter as I move through gears. I have to rev higher and higher to keep the driving smooth. There is also a loss of power if you drop speed when getting going from first. Does this sound the clutch is on the way out? I read something else that said it could be spark plugs? I'm hoping its the second as this is something I...

Changing spark plugs on 1.6 MK3 GL Golf by Neil Jowsey
I can't believe I'm having to ask this question, but that's modern cars for you... :-( Can you actually change all 4 spark plugs on a 1998 1.6 GL Golf (AFT Engine code) without taking the plenum/manifold off? I've done the outer two without too much difficulty, the middle two I can't even get the plug leads off the plugs :-( If I buy a long reach plug boot remover I think I can manage step...

VW Polo air conditioning fault by David Aldrich
Hi I have a 1997 VW Polo that seems to have an air conditioning fault. Earlier this year the air conditioning seemed to become less effective i.e. the air was less cold than we were used to. I reported this at the car's recent service at a VW dealer, and the dealer re-gassed the air conditioning system, tested it and said it was ok. Apparently, their test is to put a temperature sensor down...

Mk IV golf intermittent electrical problem by Kellerman
I'm trying to help my son fix an intermittent electrical fault on his 1.6 petrol Mk4 golf (R reg). The snag is that he's 250 miles away in Cornwall working for the Summer. The symptoms he's describing fit the "relay 109" fault. Thing is is there such a relay on the petrol Golfs and is it in the fuse box below the steering wheel? His is a standard UK spec right hand drive version. -- Blow my...
