  1. Clutch in cold weather

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone else with a 1.9tdi finds the car easy to stall in the cold weather? Mines a cupra don't know if that would make any difference? When I start up from cold especially at this time of year the car is mega easy to stall if I have to do say a standing hill start...

    My LC will not start if the outside temp is below say -3 degress. There is no power getting down to the starter as if a relay isnt being pulled across. As soon as it warms up abit outside it starts with no problems. I wouldnt mind as much but this is the second winter with fault and i just wanna...

    My old 306 and the misses's corsa does not hiss one single bit the morning after the car was last driven but the Ibiza does. Garages hav told me this is normal but i'm getting a slight 'hiss'. Nothing too major but who else gets this on their cars? Just looking for a definitive answer...

    Squeaking noise when cold?

    Hi guys, Been meaning to ask for a while. When I start my car from cold, as in overnight cold, there is a squeaking noise. Now, it sounds like the cam belt passing over a certain area and squeaks, but could it be something else? It's the 2.0 TDI FR Thanks, Danny.

    Lets see your Cold Air Intake Solutions

    As above, going to need to get mine sorted soon as mine is currently non existant and would love a few ideas. Any pics of your setup would be good, along with specs( lengths of air feed etc)
  12. Cold Starting Probs/Error code

    Hi, i have a terrible time starting my Mk 1 leon tdi. Got a friend to check for error codes and one comes up that he cant erase... 4632 Fuel Pump maximum stop.

    Rough Idle on Cold Starts???

    I have put up a post about this before but didn't really have much comeback so i thought i would start a new one and give as much detail as i could Couple of problems - 1) Basically my Ibiza runs really rough on start-up. It seems to be when its cold most of the time. It will cough and...
  14. cold car inside, possible broken seal?

  16. Steely

    Found out something quite useful today- Regarding the standard cold air feed,

    Had a bit of a play yesterday, gave the panel filter a clean, Plus had the standard cold air feed that goes from behind the head light to the bottom of the air box removed, I cant believe how restictive this looks as standard, i possibly think it a combination of cold air and sound...
  17. Misfire when cold, which breather?

    Bit of a newbie question. I did lots of searching and reading but ended up pretty confused so thought I'd just ask. When I start up first thing in the morning the car seems to be missing for the first few minutes at which time it settles and is fine. I read lots of threads after searching but...

  20. Hot air from blower when set to cold

    I have an X reg 1.9S TDI. I noticed after being in traffic jam the other day for an hour or so that when I put the cold blower on it was blowing hot air. The engine temp gauge was only showing half way. Was told by a friend that it could be the thermostat. At the same time i found it hard...
