Question about Nissan Cube

1 Answer

Our 2003 1.4 Nissan Cube has failed its MOT on the emmissions. The garage we use have checked the Lambda and the cat and reckon they are fine. Their diagnostic equipment wont talk to the car and are stuck where to go next. Any ideas?

That is easy.
Why would you go to a repair shop, that is not up to speed with their scanner software?
You don't ask those questions before doing business with them?
Go somewhere else

if the cat is a stand alone cat with no downstream lamda sensor then all that wil happen is the emissions will be high if in the uk that would fail the mot test 1 having no cat fitted if that model/year should have plus out of spec emissions if its got a downstream lambda and removed/disconnected will display a engine warning and put the engine control module into default

Catalytic converter

your car is dumping too much fuel into combustion chamber-I'd try to get that fixed first-take it to a shop and let them diagnois-autozone,advanced auto will hook up for free-cheers Denny

Garage says my w reg golf gti is running rich,they say its because i only have 1 lambda sensor on,should my car have 2 on

didnt know that the earlier golfs had two lambda sensors,but that said,if there are supposed to be two,then there will be one before the catalytic convertor (pre-cat)and then one after,if the car has had the exhaust changed by a previous owner,then this maybe the issue,you need to get it checked out because this is an MOT faliure item,i.e emissions too high/hydrocarbons too high.seems the cheapest way to solve this is by fitting the correct exhaust unfortunately.hope this helps

Ford focus 2002 emission problems. i have changed the CAT and lambda sensor and it still failed MOT. diagnosis check says air flow sensor and MAP sensor. this car has NO air flow meter.

Yes it does its in the air intake ,trying to think where it is as unlike the escort which was in the air filter housing well on the outlet ,unless this vehicle was imported from saudia arabia where no cats were fitted.then it will have one ask in the local ford garage for a new sensor and then you will know what it looks like ,i have worked on no end of these cars and iam sorry but mind is a blank after working all day ,iam sure its underneath the air intake pipe which makes it difficult to see ,damm getting old and old timers setting in

Hi, 2000 Landrover Freelander 1.8 petrol, failed MOT on CO emissi

check both lambda sensors for breaks in wires and for open circuit on heater side of lambda sensor on the one under the car on the second cat,failed heater element will not heat gas engough for sensor to read causing false readings , also check for slow i.a.c valve on inlet manifold.

Lambda probe fault possibly

I bought a 2000 polo 1.4 yesterday after having an MOT. The warning lamp came on today but the car is running fine. Whether its the Lambda sensor or just the light itself is a common fault, I think garages turn off the lights to get it through the MOT then they come on again in a day or two!

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.

Audi A4 coil pack

There are 4 coils, one for each cylinder. Audi tend to replace one at a time to save costs. So yes this is probably quite likely.

I have a 1997 Jaguar XJ6 Very high emmissions?

I have an X300 and had very high emmissions at an MOT. Diagnosed by Jaguar as the Lamda (02) sensors. Bought alternatives as Jag wanted a fortune and had them fitted by the Jaguar Main Dealer. Took it for MOT and it still had the same emmissions! MOT chap swapped the leads of the two Lambda sensors over and it was perfect! Still don't know if was the problem or the sensors were faulty.
So check if either the Lamda sensors are faulty or they are plugged in the wrong way. Try swapping the leads first as it is much cheaper!
