mot fail!

had my punto in for its mot and it failed on emissions, i looked through the paperwork and turns out they tested it for the 1.6 sporting rather than the 1.2 sporting, would this make a difference??

Re: mot fail!

Yes they may have allowed it too much emmissions so your 1.2 could be worse than you think... Demand a re-test for free anyway on the strength of that... meanwhile make sure the air filter is clean, it has clean oil in it & take it for a good thrash before the re-test... oh & add some injector cleaner beforehand...
