Hi..
A few clarifactions pls...
Which Car....
Does it have a carburetor or a Multi Point Fuel Injection System
Diesel or pertol or Gas.

The most basic reason for poor emission is incorrect mixture of air and fuel.
if carburetor then you will have to get the correct mixture set . Its NOT a long procedure just adjusting 2 main screws.... But lat a mechanic do it.

If Multi point fuel Injection... then the injector needs to be cleaned This is a lengthy affair. Before opening this you could use fuel additive ment for cleaning the injectors..
Alos check if the manifold/ exaust pipe is not leaking from anywhere as this reduces the pressure and the burn is not total resulting in Emission..

There are fuel addetives that help clean the engine from inside.... but for that I would need more info so as to guide which addivive could be suited.
Regards
Berry

SOURCE: Emission light comes on

it will not pass the test with the light on, and if u turn off the light they will know when they test it by testing/checking the system readiness function. Go to a Kragen or an Autozone they will run the test to see what trouble code has turned the light on, it is free, post the code back here. Oh have then reset the light after the test.

SOURCE: I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission

The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

SOURCE: the "engine - exhaust emission values have

Sounds to me that the O2 sensors are sensing a problem with the emissions, or other emision controls have detected a problem that may not necessarily cause a driveability issue.

If you have emissions inspections in your area of the country, then I would have it repaired before the next inspection.

Have the OBD-II scanner check out the computer codes and descriptions by Autozone or Advance Auto Parts for free, or buy your own scanner for under $100 from Sears or Walmart.

Good luck on the repair.

SOURCE: On my mini cooper I have a warning light

it isnt anything to be to worried about. it just means your not maintaining your car as much as you should be so its polluting more then it should be. Keep in mind that when you get the letter from your state to check your cars emission to see if it passes your states minimum requirements it will most likely fail and you will need to do everything to make it pass.
Examples: go to your focal shop most likely a jiffy lube does it the cheapest and best, ask for the fuel-injector cleaning. Its pricey but it will definitely help
Use better gas for a few weeks to clean out the engine. Such as BP or Shell
Change the Oil with more frequency so your car doesn't have to reuse old oil to run every 3,000-5,000 miles
change the transmission oil as well. This is also pricey but it doesnt have to be done as often as you think. Every 50,000-60,000 miles

My Mini Cooper's engine light is coming on saying engine deterioration in exhaust emission values. How can I fix this and will it be expensive? thank you


You need to bring this to a pro, and make sure it's someone very familiar with Minis. possibly a bad converter, but could be a sensor or injection problem that is sending too much fuel down the line, making your post cat o2 sensor see trouble. Get after it quickly, and maybe you can save your quite expensive catalytis converter.
