Car emissions





Ester
I have just taken my car for an inspection and it failed on the emissions. Has anyone any help on how to reduce the emissions.

Here's a link that might point you in the right direction, Ester -

Generally, a car won't pass inspection if it's burning oil or if your catalytic converter is shot. Might wanna get it checked out.

This sounds as though it could be the problem, there is a smell of gas when the window is open. Thanks I will try that.

When the car had it's inspection they also said that it was burning oil, and to keep a watch on it, so it could be the reason the emissions are so high. Thanks

I know it's a long time since my first post about our car, but we still have not got the car back from the garage. After failing the immissions test, we took the car to a mechanic who said that he would fix it for us, he relaced the engine and took it for another test but it still failed. He then trying again, but something blew up in the engine, I think it was a pipe or something. Now after three and half months, it is still in the garage, and we have no idea when we will be getting it back, looks like you people out there know more about cars than our mechanic. My husband is off down to the garage again now to see if it's finished I will let you know of the outcome.
