Don't know if it is the right place but if a car fails its mot tomorrow and the owner cannot afford to get it fixed until the end of the month. Can she keep it on the road. It will be taxed insured and importantly not driven until it is tested again?
Just asking as if a police car passes it it will flag as not having a mot
Monday night my car died, but started first time with a jump but spewed out lots of white smoke which cleared after about 5 mins idling and 500m driving. I did not notice any unusual noises during this drive.
Anyway put a new battery on from ford (farther in law works for quicko) started up first time no smoke no lights on dash. Took it for a drive and there is a whistling noise when I accelerate which was not there before I changed the battery. There was no performance issues, or smoke when I drive it now.
I am working for the next 4 days so cannot get chance to have a good look in day light as I work 12 hour days.
Is there anything I should be looking for in particular before I take it to a mechanic?
Oh just to mention serviced last March by a friend all filters and oil changed including fuel filter and blanked EGR
