so i took the G in on Fri. for smog check for registration and...IT FAILED!!

basically the guy told me the mark on the block that he needed to use to check the timing wasn't there. other than that the G passed with flying colors. however i could use some help because im not sure what the hell he is talking about. he had some broken ass english so...

anyways my registration is gonna be late unless i go get it passed quickly. id like to go back to the same place since i get a free re-test within 30 days.

its some metal thing that sticks out...kinda like a nail that points to some marks on your crank pulley to tell you what you timing is at. he just needs to make sure it mark on the one that sez 15 degrees. i am sure if u look onthe block you can see where its missing or broken and just jbweld a new one on there.

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr hang on a minuite ...... WTF is this all about ?

I thought a emmsions test was just that ? A test of the cars Exhaust Output ?

I understand why he wanted to check the timing, but is it necessary ?

:beard:

You could glue a bit of somthing on there, umm like a matchstick & some epoxy ;)
Then slap the mech for being a lazy git :naughty:

Thats as may be but you don't need to know the timing setting to test the emmisions

yeah they are pretty wack. I had that problem with my 944 turbo. they need to make sure the car is running the smae way as shipped from the factory because god forbid you dump an extra carbon monoxide molecule out your tail pipe. even if you are within the limit for your vehicle sheesh. not only that but some butt head in california is now trying to sue all the major automakers because they produce carbon dioxide??? yeah the stuff that comes outta your mouth when you exhale??? cow farts have more CO2??????

Important Note: If your vehicle fails at a Test Only Smog Check center, you will need to seek repairs at a Test and Repair station. The Test and Repair smog station may charge you a second smog inspection fee as part of their diagnosis.
Does "NEED" mean "HAVE" or does it just mean We would like you to use a test & Repair Station?

Does anyone have any numbers ....... How much yer allowed, testing procedures, equiptment required..... Test machinery calibration certification requirements etc etc....... Well if they get shitty with yas ............ Ya gotz to be able to be shitty back ;)
