#396232 Escort Tddi Pulling To The Right

Posted by AJRTDDI on 10 August 2014 - 08:17 PM

It gets overlooked on older cars sadly.

If it was my car is check all bushes and balljoints then brakes and carriers. If all that is fine I'd look for accident damage.

#309789 New Rules On Dpf Removal Starting Feb 2014

Posted by AJRTDDI on 08 December 2013 - 02:59 AM

Alot of the data on emission machine aren't correct and is a guideline tbh. There are also no laws about what machines or what softwear versons are used.

Untill Cars connect diectly to VOSA via Dignostic port ect. There will always be loopholes and problems.

When i was younger i used to rebuild engine and work alot on 106/16Vs/Rallyes Not 1 Mot station i used knew that there was 3 Different 16V engines Verson's . with 4 versons of cats/different admission/exhuast & manifold cats ect)

I had a RS Turbo failed a Mot because of going over sound limit. They had engine listed as N/A 1.6 CHV because there Machine wasnt listed for the Turbo. (even tho cars been around for 20 years). They just passed me on the spot.

There tons of laws that can't be held too like the stock WRX that dont have Projectors from factory(bmw and audi also). Yet because they fit them too new other models without washers. We can't fail them and disagress with a customer about who bolted them on when the factory are still doing it.

What about engines that been transplanted from other cars into older body/chassis ? its endless possabiltys.

End of the day. Aslong as tester is fair and reasonable. There is no need to treaten to report them ect lol.

i have a bus go past my house pouring black smoke out of it for about 3 hours of a night with not a soul on it. public transport are the ones who need a kick up the butt.when it comes to admissions.

Its not that bad. I'v worked at 3 different Mot stations. There so many differences in engines and models. Most of the time if we dont actualy see a DPF and exhuast looks unmodded. I let it pass. Simple.


Because at end of the day. We dont have time to look up all the the cars and dig into the history of every car & look at live data ect)

It's like my boss sweared to god my Diesal focus had a DPF. (it don't) (2000 TDDI)
