Re: Emissions Test = FAIL!

In Virginia cars over 25 years old are exempt from emissions. I believe its the same for most states.

Re: Emissions Test = FAIL!

Albuquerque I think is the only place in the whole state that requires emissions testing. There is no "age" requirement, just everything after 1975.
I think it should be on a sliding scale to something like 25 years old are exempt.
It should be a crime to require me to sell a vehicle that beats new cars MPG just because it's not as clean burning as it should be.

Re: Emissions Test = FAIL!

The ironic thing is everyone that lives outside the county are technically* exempt, and since allot of people live outside the city are in a different county are working in the city aren't doing emissions.
To really make this work, all the surrounding counties within ~ 15 to 20 miles should be included in mandatory testing.

*The law says that if they commute to the city a certain number of times a week they are required to have emissions testing.
But this is a city law and how are they to enforce that? They can't.

Here's an example how screwed up New Mexico laws are:

The state passed a law that required all operators under 18 to have an OHV training course w/ card. They started issuing tickets to the parents & riders for not having the training &/or card in Possession.

The real kicker is there's no training anywhere in the state to be in compliance!

Re: Emissions Test = FAIL!

I'm giving this update to the emissions issue in case someone is searching for a similar problem.
In short the thermostat was the issue- not allowing the temperature to reach proper temp.
The gage would appear to be normal too.
Here's the link to the T-stat.

Re: Emissions Test = FAIL!

You also had to forfeit the inspection fee after a failed test?

Well, my old inspection place of 15 years had a different guy for my last inspection place and he charged me full price for the inspection.
So They are fired.
The state will re-inspect free with a failed emission test. That's where I went for last years cert.

This year I started using Jiffy Lube- Free drinks and popcorn while you wait, and $4 cheaper.
Passed first time this year with flying colors + 2year cert.
