High Idle Emissions

Hi guys. I'm in need of some assistance in regards to my NCT. The car will not pass on emissions due to high idle emissions. I've changed the engine (as the old one blew up) and I've also had two cat's in it (non standard and now a standard) and the readings were 56% on CO on the non standard and 86...

Re: fuel tank gauge help!!!

I had this problem intermittently. I used to have to disconnect the battery to get it working properly again.

Then one day my battery completely died on me and I replaced it just over a year ago. I've not had a problem with the fuel gauge ever since.

Re: Car Wobbling

I've a similar problem but at higher speeds (120km/h or more).

I got the wheels re balanced today and it solved a lot of the problem but there is still a slight wobble.

The car stopped pulling to the left too. :)

Re: lower ball joints

My car was handling badly and pulling to the left. The ball joint was cracking like mad.

I replaced the two lower balljoints with blueprint version balljoints and they are good I think.

I've an external HDD. I could partition the internal HDD to run XP. I never thought of that initially. Yeah I'll message him and see what he says. :) Cheers.

Re: New cat needed.

The cat doesn't do much at idle speed unless it's red hot. Where is your cat fitted? It should be in the down pipe as otherwise it won't get hot enough to burn off the s@3!. It's fitted just after the sensor. I think there was a performance exhaust on the car at one stage as parts of the exhaust ar...

Re: New cat needed.

It's for MOT/NCT. I have a cat from a 3.0 v6 nissan maxima fitted and it's still not clearing emissions.

All sensors are fine (verified by a scanner) so the only other explanation is the cat is not working the best for the high idle emissions.
