Ford Focus Mk1 Has To Be Revved For Ages/high To Get Through Emissions Test????

07 February 2013 - 07:01 PM


Over the last two years of Mot's my car has had to be revved really high and for at least five minutes to pass the emissions test which it does each time.... Its a ford focus 1.6se lx and is not sending any fault codes/drives very well?

Last weekend when it passed its last mot the mot tester told me he had to rev it so highly because the rev counter needle wouldnt stay steady enough for him, when i drive its absolutley fine??? All he said was that its really ropey and may just be a sensor?

If anyone knows anything about this problem please let me know since my mk1 has done 119k and I hate it when they rev the nuts out of her to pass the mot lol...

Cheers for now,
