    Default Emissions

    Ok guys after the other topic about emissions I admit I was wrong, cars after 01/08/1995 will still need a full cat test tho.

    Heres what VOSA have to say .
    The type of emissions test needed will depend on the age of the vehicle to
    be tested.
    The vehicle's emissions are tested to see that they meet specified
    requirements -either set default limits or specific limits supplied by the
    manufacturers to VOSA.
    The failure would be as a result of the vehicle not being able to meet the
    required limits - which it might only be able to do if it has a catalytic
    converter fitted.

    Vehicles first used between 01/08/1992 and 31/07/1995 MAY be subject to a
    CAT test.
    If there is an exact match to the vehicle's engine code/model no. etc in
    the gas analyser database or the In-Service Emissions Book, then it will
    have to undergo a CAT test to the manufacturer's specific limits ( as
    supplied by them).
    If there is no exact match, it will need a Non-CAT test to the following
    limits:
    CO <=3.5%
    HC <= 1200 ppm


    For Vehicles first used between 01/08/1995 and 31/08/2002,
    If there is no match, the CAT default limits to be used are:
    Normal Idle- max CO<= 0.5% Min/Max RPM= 450/1500
    Fast Idle - max CO= <0.3% Max HC limit <=200ppm Min/.Max Lambda
    = 0.97/1.03 Min/Max RPM=2500/3000

    After 01/09/2002 the default limits are:
    min. oil temp = 60C
    Normal Idle- max CO<= 0.3% Min/Max RPM= 450/1500
    Fast Idle - max CO= <0.2% Max HC limit <=200ppm Min/.Max Lambda
    = 0.97/1.03 Min/Max RPM=2500/3000

    Hope this helps and clears up any confusion
