Hi when my polo gti engine is hot, and it pull away in 2nd gear (dsg) it would shudder. Its happening more often now. Also theres this tapping/clunking sound coming from the from driver wheel on pull away only as well.this too happens when engine is hot. the more i accelerate the louder it becomes. What could be the causes? Took it to VW NTT and they did a ''gearbox'' test and said gearbox is fine. But its just getting worse now (the shudder and clunking sound). Please assist?

My Polo Vivo was showing steam in the Engine after I drove it for 15 km/p packed I realised that the coolant tank ran out of water. I filled it up with water then I drove fine,. My question is that how come the can ran out of water while I checked the water two days before and it was on the normal volume. What is the possible cause of the problem?

Hello, I really hope to find a solution to my problem, because I talked to a mechanic and he doesn't know what the problem is. I have a Polo 1.4. TDI year 2006. My radio stopped working. There is this code 1000 that is written on the board and nothing else. I've searched the code, tried do fix it, but I couldn't. Yesterday I took my car to washing and I when I picked it up it was working. And now when I start the car it's working and then the next time doesn't. What could be the problem??? Thanks in advance. I'm sorry for my bad English, it's not my mother tongue languages.

Hi The clutch on my polo will not release when I try to change gears, what could the problem be

Answers

Could be your clutch plate is worn out.Try shifting it into 1st gear without depressing your clutch,if it goes into 1st this would confirm that your clutch plate is worn out and a new clutch kit is the way to go.(check flywheel for damage aswell when fitting new kit) farouk from South Africa
