  1. TDI has just gone bang - advice needed

    Pics and location? I have spare head also .
  2. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

  3. Changes to wheels

    www.willtheyfit.com if you go up wheel size you generally drop the tyre profile to end up with similar tyre diameter. Like this. There is some margin but it affects gearing and speedo error slightly. I have 185 55 15s on mine at the moment.
  4. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    That is the plan.
  5. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    H'mmm £820 now. I'd want the shell for free for me to bother with it.
  6. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    I noticed that slight issue.
  7. Lupo 20v Mid Engined RWD Build

    We did, and it turned out pretty much as expected with one less GTI. I might have a punt if the bidding doesnt go silly, but it's lost a lot of good bits already that devalue it massively and limit its options.

    There she blows.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2002-VW-Lupo-GTI-1-8T-4x4-Quattro-R32-S3-Project/232685804832
  9. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

    Rich is spot on as usual, it will be cheaper to find another engine than fix this one, but you can learn plenty by finding the problem on this one before making decisions. But seriously just find another engine.
  10. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

    Redo with wide open throttle (wot) and use PSI, cyls need to be within 10% ideally. When i did a compression test on a 1.0 it was 150 psi on all near enough. 6 bar = 87psi 7 bar = 102psi.
  11. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

    Redo with WOT and all plugs out 10 seconds cranking to confirm but that is knackered. Head off after confirmation. Head gasket, valves, piston rings most likely suspects. Has it overheated?
  12. Modification help

    Google arosa mods pictures and see what inspiration you find there.
  13. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

    Fix the issues with the injector wiring if you have any that might be a problem. If the plugs are wet on the duff plugs after a run then fuel is getting thru though. Compression test next, buy a kit (£20) if you dont have access to one, no point paying someone to do it for more than a kit costs.
  14. Cylinder 1 and 2 misfire

    Does it stay on 2 cylinders or revert back to 3 or 4? Error codes? Confirm spark on 1 and 2, confirm fuel at 1 and 2, do a compression test (burnt valves, head gasket etc). TB might need alignment procedure if you have cleaned it.
  15. Black Lupo Newquay

  16. https://www.gumtree.com/p/volkswagen/volkswagen-lupo/1289117213 if you are nearer and want a good base, seems like a good deal.
  17. Good Lupo deal on gumtree right now

    Sold i guess or removed, dont usually get a 404 if they sell though unless they have made changes to the site. I cant even pull it up in my history now either.
  18. Remapping

    I wouldnt be using a steel wire brush on injectors, just a soft toothbrush and some thinners, maybe a brass wire brush. I've not worked on sdi map either, just rummaged thru it on your thread. There's 15 - 20% free power there it looks like to me.
  19. Remapping

    Found GTI map. 036906033_5WP43307_3551_lupo_gti.rar As said above it is an atmo engine, you might get 10% or so on stock hardware.

  20. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    They are hardened items use only the correct ones.
  21. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    Take shafts off the gearbox cups and test them for slop and roughness by hand in neutral, if they cant be turned by hand something is not happy, same if one is very stiff and the other isnt. lock one cup at a time with a bar thru 2 bolts against the subframe or ground and carefully drive it in 1st to test the diff and bearings. Input shaft will make noise on clutch bite and stop when clutch disengages, output shaft and diff will make noise when moving only, worse noise when cornering will probably be diff / diff bearings (assuming driveshafts and wheel bearings are good).
  22. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    Eliminate the cheap or free stuff first before lashing out money on big stuff. Inner cv needs looking at esp if it leaking grease or not bolted up properly. if you are handy bearings can be done yourself, need some heat and pullers and probably a welder to remove outer races. but until you open the box you wont really know what needs doing and how much it will cost. I used a golf wheel bearing for the input output shaft cost about £6, plus some good sealant for the box (£11) and new oil, so about 30 something quid.
  23. Stop solenoid is on the top of the pump with a wire to it, it shuts off the fuel and stops your engine, or if it is faulty wont let it start. Test the wire for volts. Running on easy start tells you you have compression, which is a good thing.
  24. 1.4 engine mods

    Degrease and paint some bits like cam cover? Defo do the back box delete.
  25. You got anti freeze in it? Sudden cold snap and no anti freeze = stripped cambelt teeth on the frozen water pump. I'd take the cambelt cover off and flick it over on the starter a bit at a time (or turn the engine on the crank pulley bolt) and check for missing teeth on the belt and make sure the timing all lines up. if it is spinning over easy on the starter it has lost compression, so check timing.
