hello, cheers tim for answering, my car has done 44,000 mls, it has full
service history and i last serviced it 3months ago....., the M.O.T tester
said it was a point away from passing so he ran a liquid cleaner through my
car and cleaned the emission sensor? with a wire brush so it made the
required level, i cant give any figures as i dont know them........
well I have my doubts
if he did it for free then OK
but I think its a way of making extra dosh on the MOT
did they charge for the cleaner?
I don't think a wire brush is good for sensors either
may be he cleaned his measuring equipment with the wire brush cos it was
coked up from being poked up exhausts
if it had been up a dirty car prior to yours it would take two readings or
so to adjust as it would still have some of the dirty gas in it
Alan, you should check for warranty at your dealer. I don't
know about the UK, but here in Canada and the USA the warranty on
cat.converters is quite long.
Below is quoted from Consumer Guide.
The federal government requires two other warranties. The Exhaust
Emission Warranty extends for 2 years/24,000 miles for emission-
related parts and 8 years/80,000 miles on the catalytic converter
and any on-board diagnostic device. The Passenger Restraint
Warranty covers seat belts and airbags for 5 years/50,000 miles.
