so, the amazing power of preventive maintenance....or heck just regular ole oil changes....

was about to call and schedule an appointment for new cats, and Robbie answered an email and asked if I had done the basics yet. I also was reading on MUD that new cats mainly helped with NOX issues, not so much with CO issues. So last night I changed the oil, new air filter, new sparkplugs, bottle of Lucas Fuel Treatment, replaced front O2 sensor that was throwing the code and then reset the cel, and swapped gas caps with my 80. This morning added 2 bottles of red Heet and drove it up to Evergreen for Starbucks to heat it all up, then back down to the testing station off of 58th and Wads. Passed with flying colors! CO dropped to 1.8!! Thanks for all the advice, guess I get to wait at least 2 more years for new cats!!
