What does it mean when it says co


CO? That means Carbon Monoxide - it's a rather toxic and poisonous gas emitted from the exhaust system.

When they check emissions on cars CO is one of the gases they measure. If the level is too high .. your car fails the emissions test. I believe in the USA the emissions test is known as the 'smog test'?

If you have a problem with excess CO emissions on a car the cause is often an incorrect fuel/air mixture or a faulty sensor called the lambda/oxygen sensor in the exhaust system

WHAT CAN AN EXHAUST LEAK CAUSE?


it can cause obviously excess noise, but also carbon monoxide poisoning in the passenger compartment, emission control problems and depending where the leak is it could cause a fire.

What does the air pump on a 2001 Chevrolet impala do?


Air injection pumps or "smog pumps" as they are commonly called, are emissions devices used to clean up and aid in the burning of emissions such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons. These pumps inject clean air into the exhaust system to aid the catalytic converter in burning the excess emissions created at certain times of a vehicles operation.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer V6, sounds like it is loosing pressure. Can smell exhaust inside vehicle and under hood.


A Carbon Monoxide tester for homes may be used inside your vehicle. This will verify your concerns about the fumes inside your vehicle.

If you hear something while the engine is running, you may have an exhaust leak. This is something a Muffler shop can check. I don't know about recommending a business as I probably do not live in your area.

Our site use to have affiliations with Repair shops and if you can go to an Online Expert's Repair shop you should get an honest repair.

Word of mouth advertising should get you to a good place. For an exhaust smell, since carbon monoxide is odorless, a sulfur smell would indicate problems in the Catalytic converter area. Or if your vehicle is burning a little oil, there would be a detectable odor.

Wish I could say it is an exhaust tube or O2 fitting leaking and solve your problem. Best I can say is protect yourself with a Carbon monoxide detector and have your vehicle visibly checked.

Please rate my info.

Wiring


2002 PCED OBDII-Villager SECTION 1: Description and Operation Catalyst and Exhaust System Overview The catalytic converter and exhaust system work together to control the release of harmful engine exhaust emissions into the atmosphere. The engine exhaust gas consists mainly of nitrogen, carbon dioxide and water vapor. However, it also contains carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, hydrogen, and various unburned hydrocarbons. Carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, and hydrocarbons are major air pollutants, and emission into the atmosphere must be controlled.
The exhaust system consists of an exhaust manifold combined with a pre-catalytic converter, upstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S11), (located just in front of the pre-catalytic converter), three way catalytic converter (TWC), downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S12) (located in front of the TWC), a muffler and an exhaust tailpipe.
Heated Oxygen Sensors The Villager is equipped with both upstream and downstream heated oxygen sensors (HO2S) (Figure 1). The upstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S11) is used to control engine fuel flow. The sensor detects the concentration of oxygen in the exhaust gas and sends a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM). In a rich condition, the HO2S will output a voltage of 0.6 volts or greater, and in a lean condition a voltage of 0.4 volts or less will be output.
The downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S12) is used primarily for monitoring the efficiency of the catalytic converter system. The HO2S12 works in a similar way to the HO2S11 but only indicates to the PCM that the catalyst is functioning properly. In the event that the HO2S11 fails, fuel control will be switched over to the HO2S12 and the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will be illuminated. This allows the vehicle to operate with fewer emissions, even with a sensor failure.

I took my truck to emissions and the carbon minoxide is at 125 and the limit is 25. What would cause such a deadly emission so high over the limit?


excessive carbon monoxide is usually the result of very rich mixtures. Here are some causes for rich mixtures:
1. leaking fuel injector(s)
2. excessive fuel pressure at the injectors.
3. ruptured fuel pressure regulator diaphragm
4. crankcase fuel contamination (from leaking injectors)
5. plugged PCV valve or hose
6. closed loop control system incorrectly shifted rich (bad O2 sensor)
7. false input signal to ECM due to bad sensor(s).

Ford Mondeo failed its MOT exhaust emisson test


The advice that the garage gave you seems right. If any bushes were worn they would show up on the MOT Test. Try taking it to another garage to check out the Cat for your peace of mind.
