MOT Failure - Emissions

I have just had my Fiat Punto 55 put through it's MOT.

It failed on emissions at tick over, at any other time the emissions were fine.

Any suggestions?

take it for a long motorway run with redex in the tank. if it hasnt had new plugs,filter etc recently then fit them.
also run it on optimax.
make sure when you take it in for the re test you have the car fully warmed up.

Thanks, I think your right because the car has been stood still for 8 months.

well it definatly needs some good long motorway runs to allow the cat etc to heat up and burn of deposits.i would change ht leads,plugs and air filter as long as its going to pass. is that all it failed on. dont want to spend too much if it has more work to be done
