Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

The sensor is definitely there and connected (was under the car a few weeks ago). Although there is an option of using the O2 sensor feedback, it was switched off. I switched it on, and i still showed a voltage of 0.

Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

I just had a play with the controller for the power fc.

Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

Its running an apexi power fc, which i believe was tuned in japan. Has had a few owners in UK before me and all their mot results were sound. I literally have no idea where i can take it around where i live. I am currently up in Ripley (Derbyshire) on work training so maybe there is someone around h...

Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

Serviced the car about 2 months ago. Ive got greddy airinx filter which was very well cleaned when i did the service. I also noticed that the engine temperature written on the printout was 60, pretty sure that the operating temperature is around 90. Is that correct? Im gettin really lost now, so far...

Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

Hmmm, now that you mention it... it has gone up in the past few months. I get about 400km per tank of fuel at the moment. Thats mainly motorway, a some odd bits of town. Also started popping quite a bit recently. So its definitely running rich then. Still the engine pulls and revs very nicely, i alw...

Re: MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

So youre saying that the sensor gives a false reading so it is dumping more fuel in the engine? Wouldnt that cause rough idle or something like that?

MOT Fail - Very very very high CO levels

Hello good people, I had my first MOT test today since ive bought the car. To my surprise it has failed. Some common thing that could be easily replaced, such as ball joint and brake pads. But what really got me worried is the fail on emissions. I will just list what the values were. Fast Idle: CO: ...

Re: Steering wheel not returning to center

those sugar k-sport coilovers are prob fu*king up your KPI Yea i would not recommend k-sport coilovers to anyone. I have my rear springs turned all the way up and the shocks are set on full hardness, and it still manages to bottom out. New coilovers will be ordered as soon as i have some funds. On ...

Re: Steering wheel not returning to center

Ok well lets make this easier on a car park moving steering left to right lock while going forward is the steering at all stiff or sticky(like tight slack then tight again)? If its a joint or steering knuckle then it's all the time not when leaving junctions. My car struggles to self centre and it ...

Re: Steering wheel not returning to center

Unless your car is high mileage or rusty can't see it being steering coupling etc. I'd go with lack of caster(self centre effect) if you lower your caster you will lower the cars ability to self centre it's own steering. Failing that top mount bearing not turning freely on one of your front coilove...

Re: Steering wheel not returning to center

Well if you have had all the geometry etc checked which it sounds most like. then Possibly the UJ on the steering column or the rack or even a tight ball joint. It's very hard to say without seeing it first hand to be honest. If the cars jacked up does the steering feel tight in that middle section...

Re: Steering wheel not returning to center

Yea that sounds exactly the same as what im having. The last adjustment to center the wheel has to be done by hand. I thought it could be something to do with alignment. i heard that when the car is lowered the not only you get more camber, but also the toe angle changes. Could this be the cause of ...
