    Hi
    My 1.9 Diesel Touran has just failed it's MOT due to high exhaust emissions. The MOT people suggested it would be OK after a full service - oil, all filters etc. The results didn't alter at all.
    It was then suggested that changing the EGR valve would perhaps solve the problem. A new one was fitted and it brought the opacity result down to 1.32 from 3.27, the limit is 1 so it has still failed. They have no more suggestions, so my Touran is now sat outside and I don't know what to do next.
    It's a 07 plate with 57000 miles on the clock. I average 5000 miles a year, the car gets a full service every March and always has done. I'd appreciate any help or advice please

    We fit a free flow air filter to help with this problem and add Red Line 85 Plus to the fuel, after a good thrashing they pass.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks, perhaps it's not the end of my Touran.

    So today it's been to a Diesel specialist and their diagnostic said there are no problems with the car but they said it would benifit from a complete carbon clean. I've had this done and it's in for the retest in the morning.
