Re: MOT Fail
That is on certified calibrated equipment so the print-out results are the proof.
My van passed last year but failed this year although nothing on the fuel circuit had been touched between the MOT's (I service my own van). Its just what happens as components wear & tear with use.
Last year the guy stuffed a probe into the exhaust
This year stuffed a probe down the dipstick hole as well.
Test has to be at 80 degree C he tells me, avoids arguments about whether engine up to temp or not.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
