Re: What happens if you dont pass emissions test??

someone from your area will have to answer this one! i believe most states and even counties within have diff rules and regs. here in pima county az, you pay $10 for first test which includes a visual inspection under the car for cat converter, fuel inlet restriction and under hood for smog goodies perhaps abandoned. then they put the wand up your rear and do an idle and then sometimes a fast speed test on their computer jazz. if you fail the first retest is free and each additional is i believe $10. if you fail the tampering part they will tell you what they didn't like and you get it fixed.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] i have learned how to pass with my 3 cars with usually no probs. just takes experience!

I've never heard of any where that fines you for failing the test but I have heard that some states fine you for tampering with emission control equipment.

Here in New Jersey, they slap a big red failed sticker on your window and reschedule for another test.

Re: What happens if you dont pass emissions test??

A friend from Illinois claims they confiscate the offending vehicle and convert it into scrap on the spot. Make sure you don't have any tools or other "stuff" you don't want crushed in the jeep when you show up for the test. (Don't leave your dog or jeep chick in the jeep either, they crush them right on the spot.

HeHe, I hope you know I am just kidding! I don't have to deal with Emmission check just yet, I do try to comply, however.

Good Luck!
