Depends on whether it fails emissions.
Car engine light ford focus
Aye, it still ought to pass the emissions test but the de-cat's a fail now in its own right if it's noticed. OTOH you can only see that it's missing from exactly one place, with a torch, so it's probably not that likely. We shall see...
Still got the cat but it's a knuckle-ripper getting it in and out.
I hope its not a 1.6 diesel, friend of mine has just had this problem on a 55 plate. Turns out there is a big problem with the oil supply to the turbo. The supply pipe get blocked as the engine gets clogged up with carbon deposits. this causes the turbo to fail and most often requires a whole new engine as well.
Are you still OK to decat diesels?
it squeals when I start the car for 30 secs or until I move off.
Are you still driving round or have you actually gone into a garage?
**** mucking about with readers, if my engine light was on and there was a noise from the engine it wouldn't be driven/would be with a mechanic.
I had a shriek-sound from a Focus on set off, it was the clutch release bearing however there was no engine light lit.
I don't need to ring and ask. I'm a MOT tester.
If it's wrong, it's not a fact.
Tyre pressure lights only apply to cars registered after Jan 12 also.
I was on the misunderstanding that it was all warning lights so I was wrong and Dai is correct. However the quote below

Also, under new laws it won't pass MOT with any light on, on the dash.
That's not true.
Isn't correct either as it seems to be all but the engine warning light and the reason this seems to be excluded at the moment is down to it being a warning for a multitude of faults. As I understand, rightly or wrongly, is that not all MOT tester have the equipment to check the specific fault or if there is a fault and the lamp has been disabled hence why it currently excluded. Since most engine warning light relate to emissions sensors I would expect it to included in the future as fail but currently Dai is correct and it won't fail for this lamp being lit.
