cheapest way to find out is take it to a skoda dealer(labour rate less than vw)and ask for a diagnostic check,will cost but you will have all info to rectify any item before mot.(even if you take out the bulb the mot
checks the emmisions).the mot will not tell you, if it fails, what is wrong.....

Failed mot on emissions slightly too high have changed the sparke plugs and air filter and added red x to the fuel now seems worse exhaust now smoking when at idle clears when driving is this the red x if...


It will smoke because of the red x, dontr know how long it will take to clear. But before going for an mot, you should take the car on the motorway or such like and give it a good blast/clean out. Town and short trip driving is not good for the car, it can clogg up the exhaust, and also if you take the car for test and the engine is relatively cold then the emmissions will be bad, As i said, give a good blast down the road to clear it out, That should work.

Ford failed MOT on High CO emission


High CO usualy means the O2 sensors are not reading properly. Take it to a parts store that can read codes, I know Auto Zone does in my area. If it is the O2 sensor it is an easy fix but the sensors run about $50.00 each.

Smoke from exhaust


Hi there,
The most common concensus with white smoke is coolant leaking into some where in the combustion chamber as in head gasket, however you have said its not.
turbos unless there is massive internal damage usually blow out black/grey sooty smoke.
Is there bearing noise in the turbo at all? or Loss of boost?
If so it could be early indication of the turbo failing.
I would reccomend goign to a mechanic and having a leak down test perfomormed. Sometimes called a compression test. Or you could buy a decent compression tester and check it yourself.
IT coudl also mean tha tna oil seal is blown or leaking
Check your coolant resivour to see if there is any oil in there and check you oil dipstick to see if it is milky or off colour. Generally if there is either of these two it means that there is some \sort of leak between the two systems Oil and coolant.
Anotehr common problem with these engines is a crack or warped head itself.
However if your sure its not either of the above it could possibly be water getting into the combustion chamber via the injectors as in dirty fuel, however you would notice knocking and predetonation/ pinging surely. and generally the car woudl be running really rough.
Make sure you keep a good eye on the coolant level as if it runs out it will surely kill your turbo friend.
Hope this helps you out there,
Cheers

Ford Mondeo failed its MOT exhaust emisson test


The advice that the garage gave you seems right. If any bushes were worn they would show up on the MOT Test. Try taking it to another garage to check out the Cat for your peace of mind.
