    Default Cataclean.......... ?

    Last night talking to a taxi driver friend I happened to mention that my wifes 1.7 Puma keeps displaying the engine warning light and each time (4 times) the error code tells us that the emissions measured pre and post 'cat' are not showing sufficient change (drop).

    Has anyone used this stuff and does it work?

    I find changing the worn lambda sensor usually does the trick.

    !

    I used it on the wife's Fiesta a while ago, I think it is useful if you havent already damaged the sensor! But if you are putting it in once the lights come on, then I guess you have already damaged it!!!
