    Failed MOT...

    on headlight reflector that isn't set right, should be an easy fix AND emissions.

    Also, just my luck. MOT just and yesterday my temperature gauge starts going down and up randomly and my engine management light comes on -- looked online and looks like the coolant temp send, a common problem on 9n Polos.

    Current problems:
    Temp gauge going crazy
    Engine management light on
    Headlight reflector
    SRS light on

    Hopefully not a bad MOT? Or am I looking at megabucks and pain in the **** like I had when lowering it? Place your bets now.

    Thanks for any advice given.

    Eng management and coolant temp, bad sign to me, hopefully just a dodgy sensor, MOT wise not too bad, service should sort the emissions and would have thought the h/lights nothing

    On the bug the temp sensor went and engine warning light popped on was an easy fix mate emissions could be down to anything hole in exhaust split pipe dodgy sensor knackered cat loads of stuff but I can't see it being that major mate

    Re: Failed MOT...

    All the symptoms are there of coolant temp sensor; higher emissions, engine man. light etc.

    It had an interim service and a new flex pipe 2 weeks ago, so that should be alright...

    I'm working this weekend, so we'll see what's occurring with my usual mechanic (only used him twice) otherwise I'll be giving you a ring. I need people I can trust

    Cheers lads
