well i didnt study for the test at all and just went in blind..

LOL

i went into the etesting station tuesdsay after having to get my truck out of inpound.. because a cop pulled me over for expired plates.. lol they were over a year expired.. :hill: so he had it towed and said that he had no choice.. because i would have to get a temp tag inorder to get it out. well being broke as i am. i had just enough cash by $0.83 to get the temp tag and get her out of inpound. later that day i sold some thing i had on craigs list and got enough to take the etest.. and failed the nox only and ace'd everything else.. :blah: well the reasoning for the fail was one of 2 reasions, or 2 of 2.. first was the truck was currentlly overheating when i went in for the test ( radiator half empty ) and the other was that my timing was set at 17.5 deg.. :gaah: so when i got er home i added some water, and reset the timing to 14 deg, and re adjusted the idle down from 1040 to 720, re checked the timing now 16 from adjusting idle. so i readjusted to 14 and rechecked idle.. and all is good.. :headbang: then after working w/ tom i headed to take the retest and she passed with all A's :hill:

the numbers before adjusting timing and coolent was (in order)
1.1 of 5.0
1.5 of 55.0
7.2 of 6.0

for refrence

Towed away out from under you. That sucks. Good job for passing emissions!

What kind of cop? State trooper? City of something? Deputy?

I got pulled over in Morrison back in the 80s by a stater for expired plates 'cause I couldn't pass emissions (this was my 76 FJ40). My plates were over a year and a half expired! That gave me the impetus to do the repairs to get 'er through emissions and get the plates renewed. I went in to court and showed my paperwork and I was on my way, but impounding? That seems really extreme!
