Your vehicle is being supplied with too much fuel. The o2 sensors are most likely ok. You may have a coolant sensor, tps sensor, map sensor issue. You need to determine why the vehicle is being supplied with extra fuel. The fuel pressure regulator can leak and cause this problem as well. Have the vehicle proffesionally scanned by a mechanic who should be able to determine the source of this issue

SOURCE: My 1991 4runner failed emissions test with high CO and HC levels.

Not sure, but did you replace the oxygen sensors. Is your catalytic converter still good?

SOURCE: 1991 Honda Accord LX failed emission test on smog

not enough info. Typically, CO and HC together can be the result of poor fuel control or misfire, or worn components such as O2 sensor or catalytic converter, but without more data, repair recommendations are likely to waste money and not achieve success.

Why are my emissions test-HC(ppm) and CO(%) high?


High HC means its running rich, high CO usually means your Catalytic converter is clogged or inefficient. There are many reasons for this but in my experience the main one is a faulty O2 sensor giving the wrong signal to the ECU. You should have noticed that your fuel consumption had increased (or your miles per gallon had decreased) at about the same time yourO2 sensor failed. It is worth getting a diagnostic check done on your vehicle to try and confirm this. Suspect new cat needed but you still need to find the cause otherwise you will ruin your new cat

1986 NISSAN 300ZX FAILED EMISSIONS HIGH CO


I would replace CATalitic converter, this car is old, plus a tuneup is 100% necessary , spark plugs wires, ditributor cap & rotor, plus both the air & fuel filters need replaced. change oil & filter. then you will pass emissions test. and your car will run like its suppose too. if you don't do all this , then buy a new car !

My 87 voyager won't pass emissions test.. I put complete tune up and oil change on it after it failed. Now the inspections place said it made it worst. I know the belt to my air pump is in bad shape ,...


You change oxygen sensors? thoses are now considered part of of tuneup on high mileage engines,plus if you drive highway for 30-49 miles before going gettting emissions testing you get better results.

Had emissions test on '95 nissan 200sx. No check


hi try changing the spark plugs and air filter, these help immensely with the burning of fuel, also ( i don't know what you have in the US ) but use some redX to clean your injectors, this will also help....hope this helps

How many miles should i change my timing belton my 2003 kia spectra


The Recommended Interval is every 60K miles. Your mileage may vary. I would NOT let it go much more then 65K as you will be asking for some real trouble if it fails.

Luckily this is a relatively painless job on the spectra versus some other cars out there. If you are handy it should take about 2.5-3 hours. A walk though can be found at:

You'll need to have the car scanned and get the OBD II P Code. Most auto parts store will do it for free. That will tell you why the light is on.
