MOT 4,5 & 7
MOT 4,5 & 7 in Killinghall, Harrogate - Mike Wilson Motors
Every car needs its MOT eventually, three years from it’s registration date and then annually from thereonin. Along with regular servicing, a car’s annual MOT is an essential way to monitor its health, inside and out. It can prevent minor faults becoming large ones and gives you the knowledge that your car is roadworthy. Mike Wilson Motors in Killinghall, Harrogate are VOSA-approved to carry out MOTs, classes 4, 5 & 7, with three ramps and a dedicated testing bay.
As part of the MOT test your vehicle will be checked for smoke emissions. This helps the environment by minimising pollution & testing the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. It also helps you by checking that the engine is working correctly & reduces wasted fuel.
The test has been developed so that it should not damage your engine. The tester will check the maintenance history of your vehicle by asking you some questions. The tester can refuse to test your vehicle if he thinks that the smoke test will damage the engine.
After checking the oil temperature to ensure the engine is warm, the tester will accelerate the engine from idle until the governor cuts in at a maximum of 6 times. Your engine will not be held at full speed for any length of time. If your engine has been maintained, the test should not cause any damage to your engine.
