When was it last serviced? Bad plugs/leads/coil can cause high emissions.

But as Scott said, could be the cat or lambda sensor, or another sensor. My Pulsar failed miserably on the emissions, so I done the plugs, leads, dizzy cap and rotor arm and put the cat back on, and it was the lowest it's ever been, almost non-existant :lol:

Don't let him scrap it because of that! :hmm:

no chance of that m8, ive already told him if he's gona do that i'll buy it off him, its too good a car to be scrapped because of that, it'd be cheaper for him to buy another engine than buy another car.

just an update the garage fixed it, apparently my dad used the wrong oil, oil then got in the cat and the cat needed replaced.

£150 all-in, MOT, new oil, cat and reg plate
