  1. Alright folks. I'm new to the forum and have just bought a 03 reg lupo s 1.4 16v. It runs and drives fine and I know the guy I bought it off who has done a full service on it recently. When the car starts the dash is clear but on pulling away the oil light comes and and beeps. I have read it may be the fuel pressure swith or a blocked strainer in the sump. Is the strainer just a mesh in the sump which I will see if I take it off? Also I think its the eml on too, when on the code reader it says o2 sensor, cant remember the exact thing its showing. Is there a way to tell if its a dodgy pre or post cat sensor? As I'm new to vw I'm not sure... If I go down to the scrappies can I take a lambda of any petrol vw? Or does it have to be the same lupo? Same with the oil pressure switch?(although they're cheap enough anyway) Thanks in advance
  2. Hello all, to anyone who can help, my Gti is currently fitted with a decat mid section and has failed the emissions test on the MOT. I have a few solutions but I need help: 1. Anyone got an exhaust I can borrow for a day? Willing to travel and pay! 2. Get a custom mid section with CAT In place. 3. Cut the decat pipe and weld a CAT in place. 4. Try and acquire the rare find that is a "full exhaust" system with all the bits on. Any other suggestions would also be appreciated, Cheers
  3. hi guys, i have a 1.0 2001 arosa s with the exhaust emissions warning light on. it has come on a few times, flashed a few times then gone solid. every time this happens i pull over, switch off the engine, wait for about 10 mins then start it up again and the light goes off. the day before last i was driving back from bristol to cardiff (not far) when the same thing happened. i pulled over and did the same as always but this time the light stayed on, and is still on. Recently when ive been starting the car, the revs rise to around 1400 as usual, then as the revs drop with the engine going into idle (to about 850rpm) it cuts out. this happens around 5 times out of 10. also there is a smell of unburnt petrol in the air when it finally starts up. its very sluggish, looses power occasionally, and hesitant to pull off at lights. spoken to a few people they think it could be either egr valve or llamda sensor but its difficult to say. really hope anyone can help me! thanks for readin'

  5. So car went for Mot other day and i nearly cried.... looks like a costly job and the mechanic just said may aswell leave it but i love the car too much so anyone who can help with anything please do. Exhaust emissions carbon monoxide content at idle excessive [7.3.D.5] Exhaust emissions carbon monoxide content after 2nd fast idle excessive [7.3.D.4] Exhaust emissions hydrocarbon content after 2nd fast idle excessive [7.3.D.4] Exhaust emission lambda reading after 2nd fast idle outside specified limits [7.3.D.4] Windscreen washer provides insufficient washer liquid [8.2.3] Nearside inner front constant velocity joint gaiter insecure to the extent that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt ect [2.5.c.1a]
  6. Hi guys, Have checked through previous posts to check for faults so was after some advice on my emissions problem and another problem I noticed in the water tank? MOT on car was fine bar the emissions which were miles out! 0.76% instead of 0.30% 299 instead of 200 1.06 instead of 1.03 (don't have sheet with me so think that's it) Idle passed but all others failed at roughly above. Car has had a new exhaust including CAT fitted 3 months ago. Always starts hot or cold, no smoke. Now also this morning the water light came on so checked the levels and noticed a load of sludge in the water tank tipped a little hot water in to make up to the level and light went out. The car never over heats always sits in the middle of the gauge. It doesn't lose any oil or water as when topped water up I only put about 100ml in? The car has been sat for 4 weeks whilst we were on holiday and only ever does a 3 mile run when used, this is the first time it's moved to go for MOT. Does it need a blast up the motorway? Had water pump done with cam belt about 18 months ago. Car is in garage at the mo after failure and they have cleaned spark plugs as were crusted and will clean the throttle bodies tomorrow but any info I can throw at them would be greatly appreciated!!!
