Hi, I need to find someplace online where I can research repair costs. My 92 SSE just failed the emissions inspection (HC=1.1265)...CO, NOx, & CO2 all passed though. The tech told me that it failed by "thismuch & it could be just a $5 wire". (Yeah, right)
Anyway, the brochure states "...suggested items to check are the ignition system, intake manifold, vacuum device, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system, catalytic converter, cylinder compression components, carburetor or onboard computer sensors..."
My family wants to get rid of the car. I'd prefer to keep it for as long as I can, so I need to check out prices first. Does this sound like something that'll cost a coupl'a hundred or a thousand or what?
I'll call my car guy next week; I just wanted to get an objective estimate. Thanks
ps: worst thing about this car is the fading on the fin-thing (on the back)...well, that & the black paint flaked off the metal part of the door/window frame. Since the car'* dark blue, the now silver metal looks trashy. I'd really!!!!!!!! hate to sell this. It'* such a tank!
