If it's same sensor as this £30 for Ford one, if I remember indicator on wiper turns different colour after time but if no streaks wouldn't bother changing, I use cheap aerowipers now £7.56527e1ed0331aec0ec30a7153e2139d08.jpg

Well that's the car failed MOT, which means end of this thread as I won't be trying to get it thru again.

 

It failed on some predictable stuff (brakes, a bulb etc) but, very disappointingly, also failed on emissions (CO) so it's time to throw in the towel.

 

I'm done  :blush:

Bummer.. Just how bad were the emissions?... Is it worth trying an additive?

No, don't give up now!


I asked a blind parachutist how he knew when he was about to hit the ground. He said that his dog lead went slack.

Hi guys. Like an insane person I'm starting to think about having another go at the Mistral...

 

How insane? Well I now have a 53 plate 2.0 Ghia X saloon. It's in much better nick, running great, much better MPG and I always wanted a saloon as they look better and I can get into my boot with ladders on car.

 

So why bother with the Mistral? Well am still licking my wounds about it failing on emissions after all I went thru over the winter but the new car is too good to be used as a workhorse so it would be great to use the Mistral for work and have a nice clean tidy car for the odd days that I'm not working.

 

Would also give me a valuable lifeline when MOT times comes around (all too quickly).

 

Am thinking mb try new EGR valve and put an original O2 sensor in the CAT as the one in it isn't a Ford part so could perhaps be giving wrong reading.
