Re: MOT failure on emissions on 2002 1.5 DCI Clio

When a Diesel is driven gently particles build up in the exhaust system, when they rev it on the smoke test this is blown out and the car fails the test, I always give mine a good thrashing before taking it in and it's always been under 1 a fill with Shell Optimax Diesel or what ever its called helps, but personally I think that the test is wrong why you should you have to do this.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
