My Volvo 740 has been idling a little rough lately (not a full-on misfire but definitely more vibration. Rpm stumbles a little if held in drive or reverse with the brake on). Hooked it up to a gas analyser at my local as emissions were a boarderline pass at its last MoT (I had fiddled with the fuel mixture for diagnostic purposes about a year prior and re-tuned it by ear, so no surprises there) searching 

Almost 12% CO  Shock 

Got it down to 10% but that's as good as I could get it. HC is fine btw - well within legal limit. Plugs look alright (light dry deposits, grey in colour, a little black on the outer edge). Air filter looks okay too (only one dead fly in it). PCV was filthy (now clean). Going to take it for a proper run down the duel carriage way on Monday before taking another reading.
