84 Turbo wagon failed emissions

Recommended Posts

Well, i thought she was running good....aparently not. I took her over to the emissions place, and she failed the CO part of the test.100 on the co with a limit of 20. Looking at the papers, it failed at high speed on the dyno...so Its over fueling then. Where to start checking? this car has recently had a tune up, but the timing hasnt been set b/c of no marks. 02 sensor? where oh where to start?

 

Thanks

Erik

Start at the timing.

 

Theres a marker thats supposed to be on the crank pulley area. It may have been removed or its so covered in oil you dont notice it.

That plastic peice is GONE on this one...motor is super clean on this car, so its not just hiding from me. Prob play around with it...or go to sidewinder and get one...are they a PIA to put on?

its a steel thing, botlts on on top of the water pump, using two of the wp bolts. They're easy to put on with the engine on a bench, maybe harder with it in the car....

Anyway to adjust the mixture on this one? or is it all electronic?

 

Thanks

Check that it goes into closed loop.... once it (the o2 sensor) warms up the light on the ecs should flash quickly.

Did you check your muffler bearings?That may be the problem.Maybe blowing oil back in through the knueter valve due to rapid expansion.:lol: Just kidding.Possible that one of the injectors is sticking a little.Not real familiar with the "T" ea81's.Also the idea of the 02 sensor may be a good place to start.Let me know if you would like some extra help.
