    Default MOT EGR fail?

    Hi. I have blanked off my EGR and the EML is on (the one that looks like an engine icon, not the one with the flashing spanner)

    In a week's time I am booked in for an MOT, will it fail as the EML is on and the EGR is blanked off?

    I hate to ask this question again but it seems some people think it will fail and others say it will not. I suppose it wouldn't take me long to take it off before the test though. Not that I want to really.

    thanks

    So what happens if something else goes wrong with your engine? You will not be aware at all - will you?

    Anything serious the spanner should come on, I do regularly check for any new codes though...

    yes it's a good point, I had thought of that re the engine light being on all the time. That's why some people drill holes through the blanking plate that keeps the sensor happy but doesn't let as much exhaust get through....it's a tempting work around. I know you can get the EGR error mapped out though. but more expense, only paid £900 for the car (and I love it!!)
