RE: [DML] Re: Maybe Catalytic?

Thanks Nathan - good to know.  I passed 2 years ago, so this was a bit of a
surprise, consider that the 1325 has been running great.  I'll probably look
into the mixture - could be running too lean.  Anyone know of a crude method
to check if mixture dials are in the right settings?

I am also in CA (Southern) and had the same problem when I brought my car in
from Colorado. I kept failing NOx. Things I ended up
replacing: Cat (with SpecialT replacement) Tune-up, O2 sensor. I retested
after this and STILL failed. I took the car to the guys at DMC in Garden
Grove and they had their smog guy run the car. Before they took the car in
they re adjusted the fuel mixture to bring it into spec. I ended up passing.
In fact, I was told that my car should have passed on the other (3)
occasions but the technician who tested it was not getting the wheels up to
the proper RPM. In retrospect I don't think that my Cat needed replacement.
