How to pass smog
« on: December 13, 2013, 06:06:54 PM »

Fart.  :shaking: I just repaired a Subaru SVX for someone which has been running on five cylinders for way too long. Bad coil on plug, easy to troubleshoot. Any way, it runs great now but the damage to the rings by running unburned fuel for so long is going to be an issue. I'll try STP or Restore but I think the oil burning is going to be an issue getting this thing to pass smog. Any of you Ca. guys know any tricks? I've never had to smog a vehicle where I live.  :smokin:

Well the unburned fuel most assuredly cooked the cat.


 I like mine with red peppers and onions, and a Teriyaki sauce. :biggrin:


HC probably won't be as much of an issue as NOx.

I ran the hell out of it and the smoking seems to have subsided. I will add a pint of Bardahl or Rislone smoke juice just for laughs. Yep, the cat might be cooked, smells a little funny to me. "most assuredly" :laughing: I take it HC is from oil burning and the NOx is removed with the cat.

I'm not an expert, but I've spent a lot of time listening to smog people, telling me why I didn't pass.

 By the way, this is my cat. For all you Pita people out there. It was just a joke.

What year is it, there's a lot of stations out there that will let you test it and only pay if you pass kinda thing.

It's a 93 Subaru SVX. (predecessor to the WRX) He lives in Reno, Washoe County requires the test. I have no idea how they work the program.

If it doesn't pass smog, he will need to. I don't want the liability for someone who doesn't make the best decisions. He's not using my address!

would a P.O. box work? I know for dirtbikes, you can register a bike in Vermont at a PO box so you can get it street legal here in CA

I used Pa. PO box for motorcycle reg. way back  :thumbsup:  We'll see how it does, thanks for the ideas guys. I'd like to see him get it legal. Be nice to leave the 370Z at home when it snows. We fitted the Z with Spiders so it's going to move okay too. 30 seconds to install but $$$

Put the red peppers and onions away Ben, it passed smog with flying colors. Surprised the shit out of me! That Rislone Ring juice was good stuff.

over and out- lock it up
