I live in northern ireland and the MOT centres dont do emission tests on diesels!! :dIt's not a Cat on a diesel, it's a partical filter, and it's unlikely to pass an MOT without it.
With a petrol engine a healthy engine and fuel injection system often will pass an MOT without the Cat, and a Cat is not a legal requirement, the only requirement is that the emissions test is passed.
Thats happydays then!! Ill have2 book it in wit an exhaust specialist!I'm pretty sure there is no sensor to detect a faulty Cat (partical filter) on the diesels.
Why don't they do smoke tests?
Took underneth protective panel off there for a look...I cut the CAT open and knocked out the ceramic core. TIG welded it back together so impossible to tell it has been decatted.
Mine is a Kangoo Trekka 1.9 Dci from 2002. Easy access. No particulate filter or other complications.Took underneth protective panel off there for a look...
Did u find it hard to get CAT out past driveshaft?? Its looking a bit hassle! :crazy:
There's 3 bolts at turbo then 2 bolts at exhaust and finally 3 bolts from the CAT frame to the box...?
the truthful answer is not yet.did this happen with u??
of course there is, otherwise how would it know when it needs regenerating?
