Just had my MOT done on a 1.8i ford focus 2002 reg with 80,000 miles.

It passed :-)

What I am struggling to understand is the following (I have looked for this info everywhere but can't find it)

MOT print out is :

[size=1][i]FAST IDLE TEST PASS[/i][size=3][/size]
[u]ITEM [/u] ........................... [u]ACTUAL [/u] ....................................[u]LIMIT[/u]


RPM .....................................M.CHECK ...............................2500 - 3000

CO......................................0.00 % ....................................0.20 MAX

HC........................................1 PPM ..................................... 200 MAX

LAMBDA .................................1.00 .......................................0.97 - 1.03

[size=3]NATURAL IDLE TEST[/size][i][/i]

[u]ITEM [/u][b][/b].........................[u]ACTUAL [/u][b][/b].......................[[u]u]LIMIT[/u]


RPM.................................M.CHECK...........................450 - 1500

CO..................................0.00 %......................................0.30% [/size]




Does this mean the car is producing no CO2 or am I just reading it wrong ?

Looks as if the only reading is from the lamda sensor ! most likely the probe thats placed in your exhaust was not working properly !!!!!! If its a hydrocarbon burning machine it must produce co2 !!!!!! cars rarely fail emissions anyway !
Aldo
Makes sence now. I just could not understand why readings where so low. Thanks for the explanation :)

The mot doesn't check co2 , only co , which should be as close to 0 as posible due to the catalytic converter fitter to the vehicle!
