In Connecticut the dmv has just started using a new system to do emission testing. Excerpt from their website: "Emissions for vehicles that are 1995 and older will be measured by inserting a sensor-probe in the tailpipe. Some vehicles will be driven on a dynamometer, a treadmill-type simulator of real-world driving conditions. For vehicles model year 1996 or newer, the Certified Testing Inspectors will plug a scan tool into the vehicle's On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) computer system to download data and determine if emissions components are malfunctioning" As we all know the '96 and '97 have the quirky EGR, PO401 problem with the check engine light that won't go away. Does this mean that we will all fail our emission tests ? We would be forced to "fix" the problem now instead of "living" with the check engine light that comes on every now and then.
