This car failed emissions for high nitrous oxides. Limit was ~1300 and it
was puting out ~1400. I was thinking it may be the EGR valve, but I can not
find the EGR valve on this car. I'm beginning to wonder if it even has an
EGR valve. I can not find anything even remotely resembling an EGR valve
near the throttle body, or anywhere on the intake. From waht I can see below
the intake there is no EGR valve down there either. I also can't find any
exhaust pipe from the manifold or even farther down from the exhaust pipe.
Nothing that would lead to an EGR. Now I can't see everything down there
around the exhaust and I can't see everything behind the engine, so it may
yet have an EGR valve. Anyhow, if anyone knows whether it has an EGR valve
and if it does, where it is, I'd really appreciate the information. I kinda
think it must have one as the parts stores list an EGR valve for it and can
If it's not that then I'm thinking it may be the catalytic converter. If
that's the case maybe I'll just try retarding the timing a bit and see if
that gets it to pass. I'm not gonna be keeping the car too much longer.
Since it's only 100 over maybe the retarded timing will be enough. Just want
it to pass to last a while longer.
