Exhaust Emissions and MOT testing
In an effort to reduce pollution and Greenhouse gases most UK road going vehicles must meet set emissions standards. You can read more about these standards and MOT emissions testing here.
Too much white exhaust smoke?<
White smoke is condensation caused by hot liquid vapors coming into contact with cold air as it exits the exhaust.
It’s perfectly normal for a vehicle to exhale some white smoke from a cold start, especially in cooler weather. The longer the vehicle has sat unused the more change there is that some water vapor has accumulated in the system but this is of no concern and will quickly clear as the engine starts to warm up.
If however the vehicle is always exhausting white smoke, even when the engine is warmed up, this will be caused by coolant entering the combustion chambers i.e. a leaking head gasket. If there are signs that the head gasket switch the engine off, do not drive the car as further use will cause more damage and have a head gasket leak test completed immediately.
Too much black exhaust smoke?
If a vehicle is expelling to much black smoke it’s a sure indication that either there’s too much fuel or there is not enough air in the fuel/air mixture.
For fuel-injection vehicles the sensors and injectors should be checked to ensure they are operating correctly as when not this could too much fuel to be delivered and lead to a rich air/fuel mixture and black smoke.
Air filters and all other air intake components should also be checked, if clogged they will be a restriction on the air intake again leading to air in the fuel/air mixture.
