Hello. Thanks for the donation. Much appreciated

Could you tell me what size ingine your polo has (ie.) 1.2L etc. Also is it fitted with coil on plug (3 coils one on each plug) or a multi coil pack !. I would be checking the CKP. (Crank position sensor) wiring or removing and cleaning/replacing the CKP. Let me know
