Do you guys in MA or elsewhere have problems passing the state emissions
test? I came 5-10 points over the limit for hydrocarbons. I found I have a
small leak in the resonator (muffler)- the one forward the rear muffler). I
t seems the test here in MA has had major problems- "failing cars".
I passed with flying colors 2 yrs ago. I recently changed the TB, OX
sensor, plugs, oil, air cleaner- but I don't know if this affects
hydrocarbons. I heard the money is in the exhaust system- eg. the cat,
leaks. Someone told me to run the gas tank to a gallon or 2 and put in
several bottles of dry gas and premium fuel-to help the engine run
"cleaner". Any help out there?
