    need e-test

    I just bought a 88 wrangler, I had it e-tested and it failed it has a a holey 2-barrel carb that I had rebuilt, because when I had it e-tested I had a diagnostic done to let me know what it need to pass so I did the work. Had it e-tested 4-TIMES and it still didn"t pass I need to transfer the ownership into my name. Can i get a conditional pass even if it isn"t in my name ( it passed the safty no problem and it has a 4.2l ) any suggestions
    thanks

    Unfortunately, yes... but if you bring it in w/4x4 engaged, they MUST test it as a 4x4... we're not allowed to turn it off...

    Nope... it's outside the Drive Clean regulations. Drive on!

    Will this really work? Even the "Guaranteed to Pass" crap didn't get me to pass.

    Hey Noltz, you sound like you know the system well. Maybe you can answer me this. My car started smoking during 2 out of 4 tests I think from overheating because of the lack of air cooling circulation. Car is hot from a hot run, and then you let it idle waiting your turn. Does this happen often to people? The oil changer place guy says now I am burning oil???? . I have always taken my e-tests at independent garages so there is no alterior motive for repairs.:rolleyes:

    Read the fine print on the "Guaranteed to Pass" crap. It follows with "if your vehicle is in good working order", or something like that. Well if everything is working, then it'll pass the test without anything special in the tank. And TJDude is correct, if your cat is failing and/or you have a bad oxygen sensor. Gas line antifreeze is alcohol. Alchohol oxygenates the fuel, causing it to burn hotter (leaner) on vehicles who's oxygen sensor is defective. Since 'safe' maps, or the pre-programmed fuel injection amounts for fuel injected vehicles, are on the rich for safety, adding oxygen to them will cause the mixure to lean out to about where it's suppose to be WITH the sensor in place. It also works for failing catalytics, in the short term, by increasing the temperature of the burn, and thus the cat's temperature, which will increase it's efficiency. This is short term though, and may actually cause more damage to the cat. Doesn't matter though - if it needs to be superheated to pass, it needs to be changed anyway

    To summarize, yes - adding gas line antifreeze, or methylhydrate (cheaper & works the same) to the tank may let you get through the test!

    Will the Sunoco Gold with the 10% ethenol work the same?

    Probably ... a mechanic buddy of mine told me that anytime I am little concerned to go and get an oil change and then ran about 1/2 tank of Sunoco Gold through the tank.

    Just before the appt for the test, drive it for at least 20min and show up just in time for your appt so everything is still good an hot.

    I have not failed one yet .... but I also keep my vehicles in pretty good shape and maintained also.

    Typical government, huh? Yes, 88 is still tested. Seems the rule to test cars 12 years and older annually never actually stuck. My latest literature is from last year's license renewal, and it does NOT say nuthing about the annual inspections being put in place.

    Why all the angst?????? My '90 YJ 4 banger passed (no problem) at Can Tire.....if it don't pass Drive Clean, there's something really wrong.

    Never mind D.C., they're talking safety inspection coming soon.

    what about engine swaps? how does this affect the e test laws?
