Re: Car and engine cleaning pre mfk test

Hi
My 2007-70.000km fiat punto didn't pass the control technique in Geneva yesterday because it was not clean apparently. I didn't wash it professionally or inside the engine, so after they told me that, I went straight to have it cleaned for 100chf but I couldn't get back to the service des autos on time. Now I'm wondering, I need to do about 150 km before Monday when I can come back to the control... Will it get dirty again???
I know the question is maybe a little stupid but I don't know the degree of dirt that a car can get there or how clean it's supposed to be. And I'd like to avoid another 100 stupid chf wasted...

If you end up driving through slush or mud then the underside will get dirty again. If that is the case just take it to a drive through with an underside program.


Basically the point of the underside and engine bay being clean is that it allows them to see any damage or wear marks indicating that something isn't in order, and also if the car has a significant leak.
