  1. So i have this fault, which is to do with the throttle body. The issue i have is that that the trottle body is brand new, and has been fitted to a recently fitted engine. Twice in the past three days, the EPC light has come on and this code has come up, and the car has gone into limp mode, even though it is a brand new throttle body. When the throttle body was fitted, it was adjusted with VagCom by the mechanic, and the code came straight back up, but it drove fine. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Because its driving me insane worrying about when ill lose power next! Thanks in advance, Myles.
  2. Hi, I have a golf 1.4 16v 75bhp, (tried posting on golf forums but got no help at all) its an x reg, it has a polo 1.6gti throttlebody, injectors and inlet manifold.Also has an induction kit, uprated HT leads & a scorpion backbox (if that matters) At the minute the air/fuel mix is all to cock (i think)it wont rev past 2-3k with foot flat to floor, but it will gradually go past 3k if you gently press it then you can floor it and it will happily rev to the limiter. Also if you try to floor it at 2k revs it sort of misfires and sounds like its backfiring through the intake Does it just need a re-map or should I try putting the 1.4 injectors back in and removing the induction kit, because i still have all the spare parts. Cheers If it does need a remap where is the best place to get one?
  3. Right, i've just bought an Arosa sport Mk2 (arosabinns ex-car) and im having some problems with the throttle, it does NOT rev at all. Put the foot down and all it does is squirt a bit of fuel and fluctuate. The butterfly valve in the throttle body does NOT move at all. I have removed the body and plugged it into my Mk1 to test it and the valve SEEMS to operate perfectly on the other car. I have tested the wiring according to the manual and all seems ok: 3.3.2 Test processDetach the 6-contacts connector from the throttle valve control unit -arrow- .Measure the resistance of the throttle valve activator between contacts 3+5. Target value: 3...200 Ωthe target value is not reached: Replace the throttle valve control unit -J338- .the target value is reached: Test the voltage supply of the throttle valve control unit andthe wiring to the control unit ⇒ page 70 . the voltage supply and the wiring are OK:Replace the engine control unit ⇒ page 104 . Detach the 6-contacts connector from the throttle valve control unit.– To test the voltage, connect the multimeter to contacts 2+6 of the connector, using the auxiliary leads of the -V.A.G. 1594 A- .– Switch on the ignition. Target value: 4.5 V min – Switch off the ignition.– To test the voltage, connect the multimeter to contact 2 of the connector and earth.– Switch on the ignition.

I can NOT perform a throttle body alignment because it says 'ERROR' when i try.The engine on this car has been replaced approximately 10K ago with an ANW/AXP engine, The ECU is the standard one i believe.I took the car to the garage to try and get it sorted but the owner seems to think there is no possible way to get the car running with that engine/ECU. I was told to scrap it for £150 and that i could get an identical working model for £600.WHAT A LOAD OF HORSE SH*T! All of this leads me to think that this is an ECU problem?Does anybody have any suggestions what i can try to resolve this?If it is the ECU (knowing my luck it will be) how would i go abouts switching/replacing/repairing it? Do i need a virgin unit or can i get a second hander?Should the new ECU be for the original (AUB) engine or the new (AHW/AXP) engine?Would i be able to get an aftermarket ECU to get the car to work and would this be a better option? I apologise if this has been a MAHOOSIVE post and nobody understands any of it, i dont think i do myself I'm based about 15 miles north of newcastle if anyone can recommend any garages that would take it on? Any more information just ask and ill do my best to retrieve it Dan
  4. As it says in the title, im looking for a decent bodyshop to get a dent removed from the drivers side door sill, various other dents removed, a full respray in its original colour and a spoiler repaired, painted and fitted. Im located in Morpeth, so ideally id like it to be somewhere close like Ashington-Blyth sort of area but as long as its not too far.
  5. been looking at a body kit for my lupo, and on the rear bumper the exhaust is in the right rather than left. would it cost anything to have the exhaust moved so it is in the middle. heres the link: http://www.madmotors.co.uk/bodykits-spoilers-14000/body-kits/vw/vw-lupo/ingo-noak-tuning-vw-lupo-98-look-rear-bumper.html and heres the front, just wondering if id need to change anything to put this on http://www.madmotors.co.uk/bodykits-spoilers-14000/body-kits/vw/vw-lupo/ingo-noak-tuning-vw-lupo-98-05-look-front-bumper.html last note, what side skirts would you recommend to use with this kit because there actually isnt any side skirts built with them cheers guys
  6. Morning All, I've recently had to replace the high level brake light on my 05 GTi, obviously the spoiler had to come off and sadly wasn't in the best of states so needed a respray. Anyway it's been sprayed twice now by the body shop and both times I've ended up with bubbles in the finish, they've said its common with Fibreglass parts due to the air inside working its way to the surface when the temperature changes. Does anyone know a way around this, they've said they can't bake it obviously and that there's no way around it but I was hoping one of you guys may have had one sprayed yourselves and know a trick or a better bodyshop who can do it. I'm in the Walsall area. Thanks Ste
  7. Can anyone wrap cars in vinyl? going to have ago at doing it myself with a mate was wondering if any fellow clublupo members would be able to shed some light on the idea or maybe lend a hand
  8. After much thought about exactly how much power I want from my loop I decided.. I want lots more!! So the small power increses have got to be flogged to fund the next idea! Here I have a Polo 16v afh inlet manifold and throttle body, both in excellent condition with no running/ idle issues (common with these throttle bodies!) I include the fuel rail, injectors & fuel pressure regultor all working 100% and quite important to run along side with. Direct bolt on replacement for 16v lupo as a performance enhancement, easy to fit, I done it and I'm female and self taught! Noticable power gain, will be a more effecient gain if once fitted, having the vehicle then remapped
