    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : SE Touring

    Engine : 3.0

    Year : 2007

    Default

    I used to let the fuel level come down to about 1/8 tank on the Senator and Omega... pour in the full bottle.... go for a decent drive - I went home to Thetford and back which totalled around 30 miles and included tootling around town at low speed, then back home on a 56mph cruise as much as possible.

    Then fill as required with good quality (non-supermarket) fuel and arrive for your MoT appointment with the car fully at temperature.

    One additional point just to get my full moneys worth - make sure your bottle of Cataclean is nice and warm before you put it in the car..... less left in the bottle !!

    Get the cat as hot as possible for the test. Also what is your air filter like?

    Tam if the EML is on you'll be able to read the codes using the pedal test mate.

    Bank threshold sounds like a lambder sensor problem or air leak.

    Cataclean worked very nicely on both the Senator and Omega.

    Of course it helps if there are no underlying faults as well, but on a decent but dirty system it brings the numbers down very nicely indeed.

    Cataclean should be used with a quarter tank of fuel or even a bit less. Then drive it enough to use up virtually all that fuel, then fill up with good quality fuel (not Tesco/Sainsbury 95 RON). As you have a petrol engine, change the spark plugs.

    Would Putting In A New Sensor Help This If Its Still Out With Cataclean ?

    Much We Talking ?

    inlaws vec had the same fault was the second lambda that was at fault. sweet as a nut now minus the rough running due to wrongly fitted timing belt.
