So, my trusty 200 let me down, went to go get inspected, and the car failed on
Here are the readings:
Pollutant Reading Limit
--------- ------- -----
HC PPM Idle 393 220 <-------FAIL
HC PPM 2500 105 220
CO% Idle 0.61 1.2
CO% 2500 0.60 1.2
- 1991 200 20V
- 133478 miles
- New O2 sensor about 2 years ago (generic 3 wire).
- New distributor and cap ~1 year ago.
- No idea how old wires are.
- No idea how old plugs are. But pulled last night. Correct plugs (Bosch
F5DPOR), looked good. Cleaned. Gap on 4 of them was out of spec (wide), tried
to close up a bit. Re-installed. Car started right up. Now, when reinstalling
the #5 plug, the wire pulled out of the boot! I re-installed, and everything
seems ok, but is that an indication my wires may be shot?
- K&N Air filter
- Lehmen chip (Anderson)
- Full Stebro exhaust (including two hi-flow cats)
What do you guys think?
I have 60 days to fix before I need to get a re-test. New plugs? New O2 sensor?
Clean air filter? I'm just not sure what causes hi HC's at idle, while at
2500rpm everyhting is fine.
