Hi..there..
Ok...the Anti-pollution in short indicates the presence of a fault, either in the engine management system that affects the vehicle's emissions.Any malfunction like a slight misfire,timing issue. fuel mixture too rich or lean over a priod of time can trigger this warning or the cat converter is faulty..it can also be due to lack of general use where the engine isnt able to burn of excess carbon/soot deposits that often coat oxygens sensors to monitor the exhaust gas flow..and thus causes issues there..if the mileage you say at 1001 is correct...The problem with these warnings to get an idea whats actually going on is to find out what fault codes the ecu has stored and those need to be retrived diagnostically..once you know what these are..then we'll know or have a better idea what your needing to check here..and if anything actually needs replaced or not...But as above thats normally the reason and steps you need to take to deal with this problem..I do hope this helps..if you require to ask anything further then just continue before you rate
