    Need Help, Car keeps cutting out??/ What could the problem

    Ouch, for a 1.4 gearbox. I might just have to leave it as it is, and when it dies on me then sort out this engine swap, surely much better time saver and money saver in the long run? But will future gearboxes or engines have the same issues?

    Turbo a N/A polo?

    First car? Shouldn't really go for much speed, will land you in alot of trouble, wait a year and if you keep the motor...engine swap.
