Default emission test with */Cless

K.. most of you may know that I'm running */Cless right now cause of pulley and belt issue.. but need to do my emission.. I was wondering if I did it without the */C.. how would the reading theoratically be compared to */C'd ?? Reason I'm asking is well.. time.. I need to get emission done.. and won't have time to sit down and tear that stupid engine mount off till the weekend.. since it'* a weekend job for me.. not you gearhead techies who can rip it out in 2 1/2hours..

I'll run like an NA car, but I'm thinking the SES light is going to come on too, so that might fail you right there.

You'll be running VERY rich. Lots of unburnt gas in the exhaust I bet.

NO SES lights.. and I kinda thought it would be burning rich too run like and N/A but with all that resistence caused by an unsed */C.. but just want to hear what everyone think.. I was just wondering if I shoudl chance it and do emission or say screw it.. get it fixed.. and then drive illegally to get the emission done so I can get the plate stickers..

Might as well give it a shot. If your lights not on, that'* a good start. Otherwise just fix the */C belt stuff, and then get her back together, and retest.

Oh BTW, Emissions testing in Ontario is caput!!! They said it worked so well that they don't need it anymore. Good thing they made all those shops go out and purchase $50,000 machines and pay for all that training!!! It is supposed to be phased out over the next 4 years.

A Bonnie Canuck, where did you get this???? That'* news to me. If this is true, that'* great, but is the Ontario government really willing to give up such a huge cash cow?
