air flow or lambda?

Hi everyone,
ive just taken my 2000 turbo for the mot and failed on emissions,i was advised that the lambda sensor would cure the fault, ive managed to get one tonight and fitted it from scoobyclinic. They advised me that the air flow meter could be at fault aswell, which is what has caused the lambda to break down.The thing is over the past couple of months the car has sometimes had an irregular tickover, -hunting from around 500rpm up to around 1200rpm Has anyone else had any of this sort of problem ? if so could you let me know what rectified the fault, cheers, Wayne. (the cars for retest tomorrow, and i'm sure ill find out. just wondered if anyone else may know)

just a reply to my own question, after fitting the lambda sensor the emissions where spot on at fast idle, but very high still at idle. Ive just purchased an airflow meter from scooby clinic who where very helpfull, and informative, i fitted it there and have had the emissions checked at the test centre on my way home, to which i can gladly say are spot on at both idle and fast idle tests. A big thanks to scooby clinic for there help. Hope this info helps someone else.
