  1. Hi there. Just wanted some advise on what to do about my 2001 Lupo, 1.4 16v 75bhp. I’m having trouble getting the EML off. Got a code for P1174, Bank 1, fuel measuring system, Injection Timing Deviation. I’ve replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and the injectors. I’d already replaced one of the O2 sensors already, long before this started. I’ve also replaced the secondary CAT as it was already falling apart. Not sure what else I can replace apart from the Charcoal canister, the crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor. Many thanks Micheal
  2. Hi everyone, nice to meet you. I got a lot of questions about my Lupo 1.4 16v Automatic based on AUA engine's references with 75 HP or 55 kW power. She got 130k+ kilometers. I'm wanting to know if a fuel changeover from Unleaded Petrol (or SP95 in European Union) to E85 (always to name given in European Union, the name in US or England, I think is Super-Ethanol, not sure), was possible. I know risks where I go on and consequences I will have if I do it badly. And an other question, can I upgrade some parts for a better performances from this car ? That's for your responses
  3. Make: VW Model: Lupo 1.4 16v SPORT MOT: 28/08/21 Engine size: 100hp Fuel type: Petrol Description including modifications: Unmodified well maintained rare original example of a 1.4 Sport, fantastic car to drive, these are becoming increasingly rare to find especially in an original unmodified condition such as this. The car is a genuine Sport model not the standard 1.4. So has the 98BHP 16v twin cam petrol engine. These models come with ABS, different inlet cam, metal inlet manifold, ecu, bigger throttle body, bigger brakes (discs all round), different exhaust manifold and gear ratios.Like the GTi and exclusive only other to the Sport petrol models they have the very desirable centre exit exhaust, front fog lights & rear spoiler (optional extra from factory) plus the Black and Grey interwoven cloth/leather interior but interestingly these Sport models seem to have become more rare than the GTi and nearly match it in performance. Even better the car is great on fuel economy and cheap to insure being in group 12 compared the GTi in group 22! My wife has decided to go for something bigger, much to my utter dismay as this is a real gem. Just had full service and Mot, New tyres, front discs, pads all round and rear shocks replaced. Last year throttle body was replaced and always been lovingly maintained by all its owners. For an 18 year old car it still looks amazing. Location: Guildford Images: Price: 2,350
  4. Anyone looking to sell a fantasia green lupo 1.4 16v?
  5. I've just purchased a Lupo Sport 1.4 and I'm looking to do a back box delete, and hopefully add a race tube in the near future. Ideally, a sportex system is in my price range and I like the sound of those, however I don't know which ones will fit my SPORT model? Also if anyone has any links to a race tube or mid pipe for it please link! Cheers
  6. Hi guys, I just turned 17 and got myself a Lupo 1.4 16V, have been driving it on a provisional until I pass my test, already done some work to it since it had been left for a couple of years in a garage. However I've noticed that my gas pedal sits at about half the height of my brake/clutch pedals, if I put my foot under it and lift the pedal it will freely lift to the same height as the others, but as soon as I let go it drops back down to halfway. I was thinking it is the throttle cable? Been told that the throttle is electric though so I'm not too sure how to go about it, any suggestions? Cheers, Chris
  7. Hello fellow VW lovers ? New member here, hope you are all living the dream... I'm a Mk4 golf owner and I know this is a lupo forum but I have a little 1.4 Axp engine and interested in the mods you do to the little engines here. Currently I'm working on my car, valve job, clean up, tappets, timing belt kit and just looking around because I have her opened up and curious on what you are doing here ☺
  8. Hi guys, unfortunately my little Lupo has been sat in the garage and more recently on the drive for a good 18 months now due to being given a company car. We’re now expecting our first little’un so the missis has said the Lupo needs to go Make: VW Lupo Model: S (16v) MOT: none TAX: Sorn Engine size: 1.4 (16v) Fuel type: Petrol Description including modifications: Standard Lupo S which has been in the garage and more recently on the drive for 18 months. She hasn’t been turned over for a while. Location: Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire Images: To Follow Price: £300 Ono
  9. Hi , Does anyone know if the mk1 fabia aub 100bhp engine is the same as the lupo sports aub 100bhp? assuming it is and if anyone else has done the swap? And would it be a straight fit? Thanks
  10. Welcome to the build thread for my Lupo S 1.4 16v. To start with I picked the car up from Maidstone and drove it back to Colchester...Kinda... The alternator died on the way home and I lost power in the outside lane of the M25 I eventually got it home, and now it's been repaired I can start work on it! It's been a fustrating week planning the car out and not having it here to do anything to it. So first thing, the radio it came with is awful and the door speakers are blown... Down to Halfrauds and I did a buy! Fitted the Head Unit with no issues, just waiting on speaker adapters and some other bits in the post till my next update.
  11. The day has come to sell my Arosa as I've now bought a new car. I've owned the car since November 2014 and covered approx 25k in it since. It also has a huge amount of receipts/past MOT's and the V5C in my name and the original 2 keys (one with locking buttons). Pictures here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Seat-Arosa-Sport-100bhp-Big-spec-lots-of-upgrades-/142382581436? Spec is as below; - 1.4 100bhp sport AUB 109k - doesn't burn a drop of oil. - Custom Chrome exhaust cat back - Direnza stainless manifold - AP coilovers - 12 months old in perfect order. - Whiteline rear anti-roll bar - Rota GRA 15x6.5, rare now in 15' as they only make them in Subaru size now, with brand new rota caps (perfect condition refurbed in Jan) - Yokohama S Drives 195/45/15 - bought new when wheels were done - 20mm H&R rear spacers. - Momo 300mm, red stitching with a genuine boss and yellow horn button. - Kode red gear knob - Alpine CDE235bt Bluetooth stereo - Cambridge rear lights - Brembo discs front and back, green stuff pads (front) Brembo (rear) - Heko wind deflectors - Dash vents painted splash effect, they look nice (people always ask about them), but to be honest they're not the best finish. - Really decent rubber car mats Recent parts fitted, most/all will have a receipt... - New ignition leads (bigger and don't fit holder) - New battery - New coil pack - New tyres - S Drives - Brake light switch - Rear Brembo pads - Wishbones, ball joints & track rods - Tracking done at A-line with the printout. Serviced in my ownership every 5k with Castrol / Mobil 1 oil and decent parts - not all stamped but lots of receipts from Motorfators with the reg number for service parts. Last service was one was 2k ago. Bad bits... - Bodywork is tatty at the best. Loads of lacquer peel and about 7 shades of yellow. - Rear arches look like they were rolled by a blind person paint has cracked. also paint has flaked off around the rear number plate. - the lip on the sills on both sides are bent/damaged (used as a jacking point by someone), not really an issue but you can see it. - Windows have a mind of their own but always work, drivers one sometimes needs to be asked twice or need a hand halfway up. Passenger one opens only with passenger switch. - Rear right caliper sticks on slightly sometimes and can hear it, still stops as it should. - At some point, the engine light has been taped over, and it is on (can see it in the dark) because of exhaust lambda readings, but the car drives spot on. I also have lots of parts for lying around for it, that will come with the car if the buyer wants, including original seat 5 spoke alloys. Now I know roughly what this car will break for, but I don't have the time or can be bothered to do it. So grab a bargain on the whole lot. No swaps. CASH ON COLLECTION £750 ono

  15. Hi all, Recently had a lot of stuff replaced after an MoT, mainly exhaust and emissions related, and now I have a clicking noise when I accelerate. I can accelerate more softly, and it isn't audible. However, if I accelerate normally, it's audible both in the car and outside. It didn't do this before the car went in for the MoT and repairs, and I'm curious. I've done a little research and come across the Evaporative Emissions Valve making a clicking noise, but if it didn't make it before, I don't understand why it is doing it now ? Thanks for any help in advance! Myles.
  16. I've noticed a whining noise that sounds like its coming from the engine bay. I noticed it when driving back form Oswestry, having been driving for around a good hour or so. whether this coincides with if I'm driving for more than about 40 minutes, it gets really difficult to put into gear, I'm not sure. I took it to a garage who said my clutch cable was stuck and needed freeing, but said they wasn't able to do it as it was a big job. I've been told that if you have a reasonable amount of skill, you can take the entire gearbox out on a drive...? I'm not up to that standard, but I just wondered if anyone else had had these problems, and if so, what was the cause and what was done about it? Thanks, Myles.
  17. Picked up my 02 1.4 auto Lupo about a month ago and this site has been pretty inspiring with some of the others members lupos ☺️, so I thought I'd leave my mark Here it is as I bought it Then debadged straight away Then full serviced, and realised the doesn't have a pollen filter! As it's not an ac model Then picked up some new shoes hopefully all the pictures will work, and I'm posting it all in the correct places aha

  19. Arnold the Arosa Sport! Found on Gumtree one afternoon for a very good price so made the hour and a half journey and brought the little gem! Car was listed on Gumtree with a 'gearbox problem' and in need of TLC which was no problem as price was low enough and I wont be driving it until October 2014.
  20. For a 1.4 16v with 75hp? I'm thinking that the one existing has been replaced a while ago, but the specs on it say 55Ah - nowhere I searched under my engine, this type of battery isn't recommended. Help?
  21. Oil service is due this month and I want to go for Motul 10w40 for my 1.4 16v 75hp, should i?
  22. I had it fixed, was simply a case of a faulty ECU.
  23. Hi guys, been here a while now occasionally popping my head up and saying some stuff! I've been given some HID's, they're a H7 bulb with a kit and run at 2300V! And they're bright. Very bright. I was thinking of running them in my fog lights as the bulb for the main and dipped beam is different yada yada yada! I reckon they'll fit in the fogs! If not then ill have a play around what do u guys think? Matt
  24. Hello Ive bought my first ever VW lupo, its a 1.4 16v auto and i love it! However, I was driving it normal london conditions - i.e Standstill traffic and the water sign started flashing and the temperature needle had hit 110. Im seriously hoping the gasket isnt blown, i doubt it is as the coolant is a normal colour and there is so far no loss of oil When i bought the car it used to run a little cool but i assumed it may have been missing a thermostat. To be honest, after all the overheating issues ive experienced in BMW's i wasnt that bothered if it ran a little cool. I've lost no coolant and no oil. There was no steam being released from anywhere. It feels like the electric fan didnt kick in either but im not 100% sure of this. Seeing as how I have enough oil and coolant, im thinking the thermostat, fingers crossed theres one in there has failed. the hose pipes going to the electric fan ispiping hot, the return pipe or lower pipe is cooler, this is leading me to believe the thermostat is stuck in the closed position and not allowing the water to travel? When i drove with the heating on full blast i got hot air so i know its not a bleeding issue. im thinking of taking the thermostat out for the time being and leaving it out, can i cause any harm doing this for a short while? plus can anybody how to to actually take the stat out? im guessing i squeeze the clip, take the pipe off and the stat should just be there. By the way if i squeeze the clip do I ned to replace the clip or can i stick on a jubilee clip should i need one? Plus once i open it up do i need to bleed the system again? Can anyone please direct me to the bleed valve as well? Any help is much appreciated Ta
  25. Hello ladies and gentlemen of club lupo i wish to present to you my lupo "lois" my 99 1.4 16v which has had a sport put in it (apparently) atm i have a custom skip exhaust (as in an exhaust out of a skip) coilovers which are being replaced for lowering springs and im in the middle of chucking some Kyalami alloys on
