High Emissons

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am a newbie to the Forums (please be gentle), I have recently bought a 2000 Mondeo Ghia X Auto with 78,000 on the clock. Although it came with a FSH i took it to a local garage for a full service as i have bad luck with cars and was told i had a slight leak on the IACV which i got replaced. My question is since owning the car when idling i can always smell what seems to be a strong petrol smell from the exhaust emissions whilst idling and i was wondering if this can be normal? When the car was serviced and the IACV fault discovered they said my emissions were high (when tested failed the 2 out of 3) I assumed that the petrol smell from the exhaust would dissappear once this was repaired?

rich fuel mixes are usually caused by a lambada sensor playing up. if you can get the garage to do a voltage check on your sensors to see if one has gone.
