82 GL wagon failed emissions :( help?
Posted 08 October 2005 - 07:45 PM
hubby took the wagon through emissions today and it failed here are the readings:
cruise limit 180 1.3
cruise emissions 60 .24
cruise result PASS PASS
Idle limit 220 1.2
Idle emissions 140 2.54
Idle result Pass FAIL
I can post the other data if needed.
Are there errors codes that we can check, and if so is it done by turning the ignition 3 times and then watching for some flashes, or is it done another way?
Also, Hubby had forgotten to change the oil before testing it-- this car has been sitting for 3 years until we purchased it and replaced the distributor and bought a key for it. We had replaced the air filter plugs, and put in new gas.
Would the oil change make a big difference or is there something else amiss too?
Any help or advice would be appreciated--
