  1. Lupo has struggled to start for some time and recent battery charge did not start her. Typically car has done short journeys and been spluttering into life on starts. Car Was left two weeks then died. No amount of battery charging is solving it. Could the battery be completely flat? Fueling issue? Cambelt is fine and sparks were changed when informed that Bosch are rubbish for the 1.4 16v.

    New Lupo

    Hey, I just joined the page along with my 1.0 VW Lupo 2000 reg. Hopefully will be posting the progress throughout the changes I make but it's my first car so there won;t be much done to it. But it is great to be part of such an amazing car community already. Thanks TG.
  3. I am having problems with my starter not turning the engine properly, the symptoms are strange: It grinds but the flywheel if not damaged The power drops to 8v, sometimes cutting the power to the stereo loosing presets etc... After about 2 to 3 seconds of grinding noise the car turns and starts straight away. It is a re-manufactured bosch starter The battery is brand new and capable of 670amps After the car is started I can stop it and it starts fine every time after, then if I let it sit for an hour the same thing happens! I thought it would be the solenoid getting a little stuck but I don't think that the motor would spin then! Please help I am very confused
