MOT Emissions Failure


Recommended Posts

1997 Elise - Failed Emissions Test


Fast Idle

CO = 0.44 (0.30)

Lambda = 1.753 (0.950-1.090)


Second Fast Idle

CO = 0.53

Lambda = 1.222


The MOT tester was not able to say what the likely causes of failure are/were. The car had an engine rebuild including a new CAT in February 2016.


Does anyone have any suggestions, please? Many thanks, Paul.

How warm was the Cat? Decent drive to the station or is it very local? My Sports Cat needed a motorway run before it performed correctly...
