Default What emissions test does my 98 sl have to pass in ny?

I know they hook up to the computer in the car and it checks that data, but is there another test for the emissions? That actually senses the exhaust?

Why welcome fellow 98 SL owner of this crappy state we both live in!! lol!!

You might be thinking of the sniffer they use to check emissions in other states, in NY, they plug it in to your computer for emissions.

Typically if your engine light is off...it passes the emissions portion of the inspection, of course they still do the safety inspection, lights, wiper, horn,etc.

Ya, thatsvwhat i thought, i just picked this car up for 1100. With 106k on it. Driving it to work past couple. Days to give me some relief from my chevy silverado gas problem. Mileage seems to be great. Still on 1 st tank looks like 35 - 40 mpg range. Its a plain jane car. Only problem to figure out is the temp gauge only goes up 1/ 4 way and stays there, im gonna replace thermostat and go from there. I just put a new flex pipe and fixed up cat and exhaust systembthis weekend and going for inspection sat.

The ects as mentioned in your other thread and the therm should fix your problem. I've had my SL for 5 years now, and i'ts been just the greatest car i've ever owned! It's had a few lil quirks here and there, but parts are pretty damn cheap, or cheap to fix.

I got mine then for 1700, and was thrilled with the price, and had 105 on mine too. She's at 146k now, and feels like she'll run forever! I'm sure you know already about keeping an eye out on the oil level, these s -series just love to burn it!

What part of NY are you in, I have a plain jane SL, but if I gotta have something common, I don't want mine looking like anyone elses!! And she don't! lol! Just may of saw her round, surprising that i've had people from half hour where I live tell me they've seen my cars all over,lol!

As for your Silverado woes, I feel your pain, hubby just picked up a 08 Silverado...traded his neon in on it!! Wasn't happy about that at all!!!!

And if I haven't mentioned it....welcome to the forum!
