Catalytic convertor up the spout? P0430
I've just run alfa diag and found the following fault code registered..
Failed Component Code: Efficiency Catalyst Bank 2
Fault Symptom: Above Maximum Limit
Warning Lamp Status: Warning Lamp Illuminated
Fault Test State: Test not complete for this Error.
Fault Code Storage State: Error Present at time of request
Event Count: 11 count
Environmental Condition One: Engine Speed: 2200 rpm
Environmental Condition Two: Relative Load: 25.5 %
Environmental Condition Three: Engine Coolant Temperature: 76.5 °C
Environmental Condition Four: Air Temperature: 15 °C
Environmental Condition Five: Throttle Valve Angle: 7.45 °
Environmental Condition Six: Battery Voltage: 13.3 volts
This is following a full service and cam belt change etc. Annoyed that they didn't even bother to check for any faults but would I not have had issues with the emissions test if it has failed?
Come to think of it... they gave me the MOT certificate but don't remember getting the emissions report.
