What do you do next if your 1995 Metro 1.0 liter still fails the emissions test on HC on Idle by 141 ppm even after you've replaced the plugs wires cap rotor O2 sensor and air filter?

I had the same problem with my 92. Both the mechanic I took it to and the muffler said it needs a new catalitic converter. It is not getting warm enough in the idle mode and that is why is failing.
You should also take the car to a qualified emmissions specialist and have him pull trouble codes. There may be other reasons for your problem.
