Based near Southampton.
Looking for a garage to sort my emissions - 145 Cloverleaf.
Total MOT emissions failure.
Basically running neat fuel at the moment.
I have started testing the various bits that could be wrong. Really I just want to have it fixed and driveable again!

Struggling to find somewhere local - any suggestions??

I'd guess your lambda sensor is at fault, but you'd need to read the ECU codes to be sure.
I can recommend Red Motori in Spetisbury near Blandford - they've looked after my 1999 QV for 15 years. I know it's a bit of a trip, but give them a call, Andy I think commutes from Southampton, so you might be able to come to some arrangement.

Wow-

that's valuable info, SteveG- well done.

I was reading on here recently about a guy, who after replacing EVERYTHING finally came up on the emissions EGR charcoal canister thing in the wing; and THAT nailed it.

But that was after everything else...

I certainly haven't been an owner 15, so I'd have to defer to your judgement...

Thank you for the tip - I will give him a try!!
