    Default 2.2DTi MOT & Servincing

    Advice please!

    My '02 2.2DTi is due an MOT and service in the next 6 weeks. I'm looking to service this myself to save cash, filters, oil, check brake pads bla bla, however last year I remember its emmisions was high.

    Looking at the ticket now it reads;

    MOT TEST RESULT
    Fast Pass = 1.43 m-1 Max = 1.50

    Now is this near the mark or is 0.7 loads of room for play? It's got an extra 19,000 miles on since last year (now at 110k). Is there anything in preparation I can do to ensure a pass this year??

    Thanks all
    Si

    Vehicle : Audi Q7

    Trim : S-Line Plus 245

    Engine : 3.0 TDV6

    Year : 2013

    Mileage : 3023

    The best advice I can give is to post in the relevant section.. General chat being for "Any non-car related chat" is not really the best place for technical advice

    Moved to better suited section for you..

    HAHA that was the only idea had on the matter! Everyone here seems to use Millars(?), I don't trust redex with the fuel pump so be honest.

    Who stocks this on the shelf?? Be worth doing it a couple of times before hand.

    Halfords keep it on the shelves, double dose it the first time you use it (the instructions are on the bottle )
