New machine, no more dyno, Camera watching the inspector do the test right in the bay. the inspector has to take pictures of the vin, plate and car before he can proceed with the test. Sounds like it is getting quite strict. So if you need an etest do it before January. haha
Just thought i would give the heads up.
Uhoh... my CEL has been on in my pontiac vibe for the last 3 years... it does have a funny idle, but passed the E-test with flying colours last time I had it done with the CEL on... how does a CEL validate an automated fail? If anything the code is telling me I'm running lean, so I'm actually using less gas, which means,.. lower emissions... right?
