If your car fails it’s MOT test, you have to have it repaired to an acceptable standard before it can be re-tested and passed.
An average MOT test takes between 45 to 60 minutes.
Tyre pressure can affect your car's handling and fuel efficiency. Tyres at the wrong pressure will wear out faster and are also less safe. So be sure to check them regularly. This is how to check the pressure of your tyres:
The easiest way to measure the tread is to insert a 20p coin into the lowest tread depth of your tyres. If you can't see the outer rim around the edge of the coin, then your tyre is safe and has a minimum of 3mm tread depth. If you CAN see the rim of the coin then your tyre tread is less than 3mm and should be checked by a professional.
The best way to tell your engine is low on oil is through the check engine light. As soon as the sensor detects the oil level is low, the check engine light will illuminate to alert you. This is usually located on the dashboard.
Knocking noise coming from under the hood is another sign that your engine oil level may be low. You'll notice this if the car has been running on low oil for a while. Soon as you start hearing such noises, pull over to the side when its safe to do so and switch off your engine. Let the engine cool down, then proceed to check the engine oil level.
Regularly checking your engine oil is one of the most important things you can do to look after your car. You shouldn’t have to completely change your oil every time you check it, topping it up should be fine until the oil goes bad.
