Why my 6 year old Volkswagen Polo has starting problem in the morning?
By: debasish Mukherjee on 9 march 2017
The common causes of car starting problem and their solution are:
• Starter issues: Starter contacts worn out, starter solenoid faulty, starter assembly faulty or starter circuit fault etc. So, replace starter contacts, starter solenoid, starter assembly or repair starter circuit as required.
• Dead battery or very weak battery: Check the age of battery and if it is pass its lifespan (ex. 60months, 72months, etc.), then replace the battery instead of wasting money on recharging or diagnostics since that may be the only cause of the starting problem.
• Faulty battery terminals: Check the battery terminal cable connections. If they look really corroded, you need to clean the battery posts and cable connectors or replace the cables and try to start the engine.
• Clogged Fuel Filter: Your car may not be getting fuel because the fuel filter is completely clogged. Check the fuel filter for any signs of blockage and replace it if required.
I advise you to take your car to your localVolkswagenservice center or to some skilled mechanic for proper diagnosis & solution.
