You check all the lines. Search here it was mentioned the canister in the back (I think, can't remember) the nipple breaks.
I'm in Texas and go through Williamson county emission testing. I'm pretty sure we can pass with just one pending. The PO442 does throw the CEL but I could clear that and still pass if I could get the PO445 to actually pass/get out of pending. Pretty sure these are both EVAP checks. I may have to check into collector car insurance again. Last time I did I noticed the mileage restrictions which aren't a big deal as I only drive this car about 2K miles a year anyway but it was the location restrictions that had me pass. The places I looked had stipulations that you could only take the car to shows and you were not allowed/covered when driving the car for pleasure like to work or even to run to errands in.Which state are you? Is the code pending, flagged (check engine light on), or is your EVAP checks not ready?
The reason why I mention is because some states will still pass you with a "pending" as long as EVAP checks are complete.
In Arizona we are allowed two "not ready" for pre-2000's.
Unfortunately other states are communist, no issues can be detected and all readiness compete.
I got so tired of waiting 3+ hrs in line for emissions tests I ended up registering the Viper & NSX as collectors (both are limited production "exotics"), which skips emissions - the only drawback is you must have collectors car insurance which usually has mileage and driving restrictions.
Pretty happy with it. I bought it way back in 2012 for $24k. Just regular maintenance for the most part. I did have to rebuild the ABS modulator with fresh o-rings (most people just swap out with a modern module for an S2000). Timing belt is a bitch. I'm about due for another belt change, gotta refresh my valve cover gaskets and cam plugs while I'm in there.Hijack:
Ooooooh my wish list car.
Are you happy with it? Repairs?
I finally got my car registered (my constant EVAP low leak code wound up being the gas tank gasket) and the cars running good again.
Yeah, thanks for posting this as I had forgotten about this thread.And - a final resolution posted in another thread:
