RE: [DML] Failed CA Emissions UPDATE (still bad)



Timing could be your saving grace.  In two weeks the car (an '81 I
presume) will be 25 years old.  My understanding is that in CA if you
get a historic plate you do not need to pass smog.  Dealing with the DMV
will be a pain in the ass, but if your a AAA member they could likely
walk you through it.  With the large # of D's in CA I'd think someone
here would have a more informed answer as to if this is a possibility.

I'm in Burbank, contact me off list if you like, tell you where I AAA
and passed smog.

Hello gang,

Well, I am at wits end and more or less at the end of my mechanical
ability. I performed a full tune up including new cap/rotor, wires,
spark plugs, new cat, new O2 sensor. My car runs great, good
acceleration, pretty good idle (hunts a little bit 100 rpm or so) STILL
FAILED SMOG!!

I am going to take the car the Garden Grove and have the guys do their
thing again.  They are really nice and understanding about this whole
thing I must say.  

Any more ideas out there? The smog tech said that he thought it could be
a small timing problem or that the car was not totally warmed up.  I
only failed the NOx portion again, barely. Ill post 
the results later tonight.   I thought NOX was from HIGH ignition 
temps, not from a cold engine.  BTW, none of these smog people have even
seen a Delorean before; they look at it like it's a space ship or
something.  Could they be doing the test wrong??  

Very frustrated
