I was driving to work the other night and noticed the emmisions light was on and tbh i had noticed a few days before that the car seemed a bit grumbly and throaty when starting from cold, as if the exhaust was blowing ever so slightly.
So now i have finished work till Friday i decided i was going to get it looked at today and leave it with them until it was sorted. But when i started the car to come home lastnight the emmisions light was gone and the car sounded and drove fine from the off.
When it was grumbly and throaty it seemed to be coming from around the area the cat is, so i thought maybe that had gone, but i thought if cats have gone they have a really bad smell?
I'm just wondering if there was anyone else that had experienced this before?
Could a hole in the exhaust cause emmisions light to come on?
Im pretty happy that the light has gone for now BUT im pretty sure it's only a matter of time before it appears again .
So any help and advice would be appreciated.
