mot

Recommended Posts

Well the s4 went for its mot at 8am. Everything fine then on the emissions the car was missing and spluttering and dies. The mot guy looks at the exhaust probe which was blocked with what looked like a white plastic. S4 wont turn over. We get some jump leads s4 starts. They change the exhaust probe emissions are fine. Looks like the battery has expired.

Car passed mot. Looks like the nylon coating on the exhaust probe got melted due to heat from the s4 exhaust. He was trying to get the s4 to pass the emissions but looks like the ecu was acting up due to battery expiering.

New battery now fitted and new mot. Got away with the horn not working due to the battery as well.

All the best

Hahaha I destroyed the MOT probe on my first failed MOT with the Turbo SE a month back - the backfire from the exhaust shot the probe part out, but the clamp remained stuck to the exhaust. Good times.

 

Good that you passed though!

Saw her today in her usual position off the road and so wanted to pull up and look at the beautiful interior but the Mrs wouldn't have approved! Well done!!
