We will check that there are no leaks and look over the hoses and pipes. We’ll also check that the fuel cap fastens and seals safely. They will also be assessed for being in good working order.

Exhaust System

Depending on the age and fuel type of your vehicle, your vehicle will be inspected to ensure that your vehicle meets the standards for exhaust emissions. Your exhaust system will be checked to ensure that it is safe and that a catalyst isn’t missing where one was originally fitted as standard and that it is not leaking or too noisy.
