Got "free" wagon. Need it to pass emissions. Did wanna be tune-up (oil
change, new air filter, plugs & wires, fuel filter, radiator
flush'n'fill). Runs and idles fine while just sitting there, but-with
even pressure applied to pedal-rpms raise and lower dramatically. I
can really rev it and keep them high at the same level, but at lower
rpms they vary greatly. Any ideas?
It is probably cheaper to get the car inspected. It is cheaper in the
long run to fix only what needs to be fixed. When you get it inspected,
you will find out exactly what needs to be fixed. This is a lot cheaper
and easier than guessing what needs to be fixed, fixing it and finding
out later that other things need to be fixed.
Plus, I think some states have limits on what you have to spend to pass
emissions. If your state is one of the states, anything you spend before
inspection does go towards that limit.
So the best thing to do is get it inspected and target your spending
towards what is broken.
