update for you.

 

cleared the oil out of the spark plug chamber and 'italian tuned' the car - retested and passed the emmission flying colours

just read the paperwork again, and it was CO which was high not the CO2

 

So High CO and HC.

 

Car is running better now I have cleared the oil from the spark plug chambers and no new oil has appeared so I am hoping it was just that. Will blast it before MOT to see if that helps.

 

Could I check anything else?

Just checked and they did not leave the figures with the paperwork

I did take ht leads of and in the chambers it was full of oil. Coupke of months ago i left the oil cap off so presume it filled then cleaned it and its running better now. Do u think that would have skewed emmissions?
