General Information

The Volkswagen Polo is a car produced by the German manufacturer Volkswagen since 1975. It is sold in Europe and other markets worldwide in hatchback, sedan and estate variants. The Polo has been produced in six generations. The Volkswagen Polo won the 2010 World Car of the Year.

The Polo is a compact car, with a traditional transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive. Mark I Polos only came with four cylinder petrol engines, but for the Mark II, a diesel engine was offered for the first time, although only in certain markets, others having to wait until the launch of the Mark III. The current range includes a variety of three and four cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

 

General Problems

If you tend to do lots of short journeys from cold, opt for a petrol model rather than a diesel one, because the diesel particulate filters can clog up if they don’t get regular motorway exercise. Speaking of diesel engines, the Polo used the EA189 unit that was implicated in the Dieselgate emissions scandal and was subject to a recall to update its software.The 1.2 diesel engines built between 1 April 2010 and 1 April 2014 were subject to a recall for cracked fuel filters. If the filter develops a crack, fuel will leak out, with the smell entering the interior. Most should have been fixed by now but it’s worth contacting your local VW retailer to check if the work has been completed.

Although not an official recall, some 1.4 petrol models also required a software update earlier in the Polo’s life, so inquire with a VW workshop as to whether this was carried out.The manual gearbox has a better reputation for reliability than the seven-speed DSG automatic. The latter was recalled in some markets, but this didn’t include the UK, despite a notable number of owners reporting problems.

In addition, enough cases of high oil consumption in the 1.4 TSI GTI model have been reported in order for it to be worth avoiding.

Oil Change

Most owner’s manuals for newer vehicles will tell you it’s acceptable to go 10,000 kilometers between oil changes under normal conditions. But you should drop to 5000 kilometers if you drive under severe conditions. Severe driving conditions can take a toll on just about every part of your car — both inside and out.
Eventually, if the oil is not changed, the entire engine will shut down and have to be replaced.

Oil Filter service pretoria

Oil Filter Replacement

The oil filter helps remove contaminants from your car engine’s oil that can accumulate over time as the oil keeps your engine clean. Clean motor oil is important because if the oil were left unfiltered for a period of time, it could become saturated with tiny, hard particles that can wear surfaces in your engine.
Car manufacturers often suggest changing oil filters every other time you have your oil changed. Most parts and oil manufacturers, however, say to replace oil filters with every oil change

Pollen Filter replacement

The pollen filter is the filter responsible for filtering the air that is fed into the vehicle’s heating and air conditioning systems.
It is recommended to replace the filter every 15000km or once a year.
Usually located in the engine compartment or cabin, beneath the windscreen, the pollen filter is a mechanically driven sieve with an electrostatic paper filter (or sometimes an active carbon filter) that attracts dust and plant particles such as pollen, spores and fungus, as well as chemical pollution in the air.

car air filter

Air Filter Replacement

Maintenance schedules for various makes of vehicles differ on how often the air filter should be changed.
If you drive on unpaved roads, it needs to be changed more often. If you don’t drive a lot, an air filter should be replaced at least every 3 years, as with age it becomes brittle. A dirty air filter prevents the necessary volume of clean air from reaching the engine which affects the emission control systems of the car; reducing air flow and causing a too rich air-fuel mixture which can foul the spark plugs. Fouled spark plugs can create an engine miss, rough idle and even starting problems.

fuel filter service

Fuel Filter Replacement

The rule of thumb when replacing a fuel filter on an older model car is at least every 2 years or 30,000 kilometers. On newer models, this interval can run longer. The best way to tell if your fuel filter needs replacing is to have the mechanic do a fuel pressure test.
One typical example of a restricted fuel filter is a vehicle that cuts out or loses power driving up an incline, such as a bridge. Under load, fuel demand increases and a clogged fuel filter reduces the needed flow. As the fuel filter gets dirty, the fuel pump works much harder.

Spark Plug Replacement

Replaced spark plugs can actually make your car run faster and better. A modern combustion engine needs three main things to run: fuel, oxygen and a ignition(spark plugs). Higher quality spark plugs will improve thecombustion of the engine, improving power.
Common signs of faulty spark plugs include slow acceleration, loss of power, poor fuel economy, engine misfires, and difficulty starting the car. … Good spark plugs will burn fuel efficiently, while bad or failing spark plugs can cause the motor not to start at all.
