  1. Just trying to find out what year onwards the 1.4s cars became fly by wire rather than cable. Or if someone could please tell me what mine is that would be even more useful, it's a 53 plate. Thanks in advance for any responses 👍
  2. 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 suggestio
  3. Hi guys Been having an issue with the lupo the last few times ive done long drives. When I'm on the motorway cruising the car seems to decide to stop accelerating and its like full throttle isnt even enough to sustain speed it kind of stutters a bit as it slows down Today I was on the motorway and it was like the thing was dying the way a remote control car goes when the batteries run out? Pulled over and left it for 5 minutes and then it was good enough to get home Ive seen people say its something to do with the brake sensor not working correctly so the throttle won't work a
  4. 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
  5. Hi all, I have a problem with my 2001 (51, petrol auto) Lupo where it starts to judder/vibrate/shake/stutter after about 20 seconds of idling on a cold engine. It keeps stuttering for about 1 minute before it stalls. I can stop it stalling by holding the RPM's at 1500-2000 until the engine warms up (3-4 minutes). It's annoying and happens every single morning even when it's not that cold outside. I've heard it might be: Coil Packs Air Intake Throttle Valve Spark Plugs Throttle Body I'm not technical *at all* and have been to local garages who have charged me £30 for an inspection and said "w
  6. 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
  7. Hi Have listed this in other model specific Lupo forum but realise it should be here My Lupo died at TL. Battery flat because of car lights and trying to start. disconnected and recharged battery, left terminals touching 24hrs. Errors 17950 throttle body & 17978 immobiliser. Taken air filter off, checked wiring connections (a little), fully recharged battery again now ONLY 17950 throttle body error code BUT car still always starts and immediately stops. Can the throttle body error cause immobiliser to kick in as it seems this is why the car stops. Thinking of either cleaning throttle body
  8. 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 a
  9. as the title says im looking for somebody with vagcom or similar software in stockport as ive been doing some work on my engine and now it wont start and there's no codes so i think its because the throttles been disconnected and needs realigning, id pay you for it or buy you a crate your choice incase you need to know its a lupo 2004 1.4 16v sport
  10. Hi all, new to the forum Have a Canica Blue Arsoa Sport (is my girlfriends) Yesterday I did the job of stripping down the EGR and Throttle Body to clear out the 10 years of grime and build up. Ran vagcom adaption of EGR and throttle and OMG... its like a different beast. Now we have way more bottom end, you can really hear the grunt of the induction with increased throttle response and it is pulling nicely from 2000 rpm. I was honestly shocked how much difference it made to the car as it must have been way down on torque. This is a job that is really worth doing!!! The next job will be to str
  11. The Problem My brother in Law just got a Lupo 1.4 Sport 16v, AFH engine, Cable throttle. The revs keep dropping on it. Try and hold it at a constant RPM and it will be fine for 4 or 5 seconds then the revs will drop. Sometimes they drop lower than other times. Sometimes they come back up to where they were, sometimes they don't and it goes to idle level. Relavent History Aparently the guy who sold the car said it had had a new Throttle Body fitted at some point. What I have tried First Attempt Straight away I noticed quite a bit of oil in the air filter, coming in from the crank breather pipe.
  12. hi everybody. was going along the motorway yesterday and my accelerator just hit the floor. recovery bloke came and it turns out the throttle cables snapped. always thought mine was elecrtric though cos there is no wire in the throttle body, but when you look up past the pedals i can see a snapped cable. got one on order from vw to collect tomorrow but does anyone have any clue of replacing it?? thanks! chris
  13. 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,
