I have a polo 1.4 Comfortline 2013 model - about a monthe after I bought this car (Brnd new) onemorning the EPC light came on when I started the engine, but because it stood overnight outside I thought it was because of the cold (winter). After some driving the light went off. A few weeks later it did it again. I took it to VW and they said the negative terminal was a bit loose. But the light came on again but this time the engine had no power the car basically stalled; what could be causing this problem?

Please check the power assist fluid as I assume it must be low or totally gone. Also check the main belt to see if it is intact. Hope this helps Ali Yehia from Egypt

Hi, I have a 53 Polo and it`s started using loads of coolant. There is no visible leak and it doesn't look milky in the engine so I was wondering what was causing it? Also I`m not sure if it`s linked but a lot of times I have trouble starting the car and when it does start a big puff of smoke out the back but it`s white not containing unburnt oil/diesel. When it's cold temp the car starts straightaway. Glow plugs have been checked. Thanks for any help.

After changing the clutch kit on a VW Polo classic 1.6 2003 model, the car engaged reverse once and moved, after taking it out of that reverse it could not engage any gear. Funny that the gear lever selects all of them when the engine is off, but won't move when started in gear. Even when the engine runs, it is not taking them. Can someone tell me what the problem is and the solution as well please?

Good day. I just had my clutch changed about a week ago. When I picked up the car when changing gears 2 to 3 there is a high rev and then there is a light, like a steering wheel on the left side of the cluster that comes on. When that happens my speedometer does not work and there`s no more over-revving when changing gears. Please advise - Polo Playa 2006. Thank you.
