Advice needed: Emissions testing
Posted 27 April 2005 - 11:31 PM
Well, I need advice from any of you folks who live in a smog controlled state. How do I know what to fix if it fails? I have no idea if the emissions system even works anymore on my wagon, and I have a giant hole in my exhaust system.
I don't even know where to begin with getting her ready. Any suggestions on where to start?

you use OEM/decent aftermarket parts so your components are doing what they should do
make sure your carb is in good shape - CRITICAL
make sure your plugs/cap/rotor is in good shape - CRITICAL
you cross your fingers - these cars have emissions system problems, so it is hard to say whether it will pass the first time or not
I have had good luck running CRC's Guarenteed to Pass (G2P) - got it at Pep Boys, super-cleaner for exhaust - running premium helps too...
