Just failed NJ emissions inspection

Took my new to me '95 NAS and failed the low idle part but passed the high idle.

Not being familar with engines, could this be an expensive repair? Using either 91 or 93 octane gas if that makes a difference.

No biggie. How long did you drive the truck for before getting it tested? Also did you take it to a shop or the state inspection?

Drove from Princeton to the State Inspection facility in South Brunswick so about 25 minutes but I got there 40 minutes early to be first in line; the car was shut off for this amount of time before it was restarted and driven right into the inspection bay.


Also, would the prior owner installing a Magnaflow exhaust system affect the outcome?

Exhaust pipe has nothing to do with it. Probably the cats were not hot enough. Go to the station again and while you are waiting run the engine at 2000rpms and that should be sufficent to keep your cats hot enough so that it passes emissions. My fathers mechanic that he takes the truck to told me that little trick.

If bet with new o2 sensors you'd pass. That's what happened to mine. Super easy to do yourself too.
