    [QUOTE=Noltz;1060563]The dilution is the ambient dilution, not the air/fuel mix. It's a compensation number factored in by the OTU. If the number is really high, it indicates there's a small leak in the exhaust system and ambient air is being drawn in.

    I did not say the dilution was an air/ fuel ratio. I said the number should be higher such as an A/F number. I Understand the number dictates a dilute of the emitted exhaust .
    Explained... Receive the entire flow of vehicle exhaust;
    – Dilute the exhaust with filtered ambient air;
    – Continuously extract and collect a proportional sample of the
    dilute exhaust; and
    – Accurately meter the total volume of dilute exhaust

    Are my reading skills correct in assuming this car is an '88? I thought cars over the 20 year mark are exempt from the e-test.

    so you know. ime going to replace the cat ,i found one at a&a {woodward} for 60.00. cats have a rule that states even if required the replacement of the cat will not go towards the 450.00 conditional pass.so ille replace it myself.then test it. ille keep you posted!!! thanks for all your advice. Bryn

    i don't know where you heard that law but it is not true. if it is an emission related component than it qualifies for the RCL but only if an accredited repair facility diagnoses and replaces it. if you have anymore questions you can pm me i'll be happy to help you with any answers you need.

    if you passed the 40km test, make sure you have correct tires with correct pressure! underinflation messes up your test. I would do the seafoam with oil change anyways on an old car.

    My personal favorite is running water in the intake through a vacuum line, steam cleans all the combustion cghamber, 02 sensor and your cats if they are starting to clog. High idle and 5L of water ought o do it, make sure your engine is hot when you do it. dont let it suck too much at a, lilttle bit-little bit

    Seafoam is a cleaner that can be purchased from parts supply stores. It's almost kerosene with detergents... It's really good at decoking engines and breaking up carbon deposits. You can put it in your crankcase oil for a through flush, or burn it slowly through a vacuum line while the engines running to clean up the intake plenum and valves. You can pour it into the cylinders through the plug holes to free up sticky rings too. Basically if you've got an engine that burns oil at all, this stuff will clean any residue up and make the engine perform like it was just put together.

    how often would you use it? and when do you know your engine is a good candidate for it?

    Gof, make sure you tell them all the information they need dude! Not to say Bryn would dump water into his crankcase, but sometimes folks read these threads and go "oh, ya that's my problem too".

    Water is a INTAKE ONLY solution to decarboning your engine. You only use Seafoam when you have a carbon deposit issue internally, such as a neglected engine that has crud built up inside. Or if you've got a engine with a lot of blowby and it's burning a bit of oil. Water will literally steam clean the inside of the cylinder walls, as well as wash down a lot of the deposits in the intake manifold. You can do that once a year or so... doing it any more is a waste of time. But GOF is right about the cat issue - it's absolutely part of the repair cost limit.

    How'd you do with the universal cat?
