What's an MOT? Emissions inspection?

From what I understand it is like an entire vehicle inspection. It includes emission (much like our smog) but many other things on top of it.

MOT test - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Welcome to the real world boys. Have to do that every year for every vehicle since way before I was driving in Pa. IIRC it used to be every 6 mos way back when.

MOT is the UK version of your inspection. They're as picky as shit though!

Not cool. I mean, I guess there is some merit in wanting folks to drive well-maintained vehicles, I just don't like the idea of having to pay for it. Here in my county in Ohio you have to pay for some pimply faced parasite to shove a probe up your tailpipe and plug your vehicle in to some OBD scanner. It's kind of ridiculous that some hilljack in a neighboring county can drive around leaking a quart of oil a day, with no exhaust system, and the bumper dragging on the road.

NJ used to do a complete inspection every year. Now they just do emissions/computer and its every two years. New vehicles are not due for atleast four years. This was supposed to save money but they found out last year the reduction of services/checks did not save any $$$. Thats why I have my diesel F-250 registered for 10001 lbs and its self inspection.

I'll let you know how I get on folks - 1.30pm today and I haven'y had a chance to put more additive in the rear diff so it can moan a bit on tight corners but I don't think they can fail it on that. As long as all bulbs and general stuff like brakes etc are fine I should be ok. I'll fill it with LPG before I go so emissions should be a doddle !!!!
It's the regular place I take my vehicles so I know they're not ripping me off.

Happy days !!!!!!
Passed no with no probs.
What amazed me is how clean the emmissions are on LPG - zero CO readings at all !!!
Glad they didn't spot my check engine light for my downstream 02 sensor ;0)

Congrats man!

Yeah check engine light, at the moment is just an advisory. But there have been moves to make it a fail.
