YOU COULD TRY SOME FUEL SYSTEM CLEANER TO CLEAN ALL THE CARBON DEPOSITS OR U MAY NEED TO REPLACE LAMBADA SENSOR OR YOUR CATALYST

It is running rich. Verify the readings are within specs from the O2 sensors, they should fluctuate up and down once the car is hot, constant high reading is rich run, very low is lean or defective sensors, also clean the throttle body and air-bypass valve, changing the oil can help as well. Do you have any OBD 1 Codes in the system memory?

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.

SOURCE: Did not pass state inspection (vehicle)

First the fault codes,
U110C is No Fuel Level Bus Message
U0155 is No Cluster Bus Message.
Unfortunatly you have to be able to communicate with the instrument cluster with your scanner to diagnoise and I do not think an aftermarket scanner can do this.

Peugeot code p3011


This is a generic warning message on Peugeot and Citroen cars.

It generally means that there is a fault within the emissions circuit. However it does not necessarily mean that there is a fault with the CAT or lambda sensors.

It could be one of many sensors or faults that causes the ECU to detect a fault and could led to this error message been displayed.
p3011 = fuel pump relay short to positive

But my advice is to clear the fault code. If it appears again then change the fuel filter and go from there. If the problem persist then as I said chec your emission circuit.

My volvo v70 has failed the french mot test due to high emissions ; the cat con is only 2 years old ; what is the best way to approach this prob


CHANGE THE OIL TO TOP QUALITY OIL THEN CHANGE THE SPARK PLUGS TO BETTER SPARK MOST PROBABLY IRIDIUM THEN CHANGE THE AIR FILTER TO A BMG AIR FILTER (THIS AIR FILTER DOESNT EVER NEED CHANGING) THEN FILL THE PETROL (IF IT NOT DIESEL) WITH HIGH OCTANE (98ron) AND ADD RACING OCTANE BOOST TO THE PETROL TANK AND THAT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND YOUR CAR WILL GO A HELL OF ALOT BETTER YOULL SAVE ON FUEL ALSO THE IRIDIUM SPARK PLUGS DONT HAVE TO BE CHANGED FOR AT LEAST 100.000KLM HOPFULLY THE PETROL AND MORE AIR GOING IN WILL HELP
