Failed emissions

My D110 just failed ct emissions, does someone have an idea where I should start with this issue. They gave no indication of the specifics except "it's your emissions".

Not sure if they have the same deal in CT, but here in Pennsylvania I registered my D90 as a classic. Only pay once and its good forever, plus only need annual safety inspection, no smog! Otherwise find a sympathetic tester and see if he can help. Good luck.

CT anything (passenger) older than 4 years and younger than 25 years needs an emissions test every 2 years, outside of those parameters there is no emissions testing.

Works like a charm. Add to full tank. Drive until tank is empty. Go pass emissions - use it every year on my NAS D110 and always works.

This is interesting and worth a try. Is it worth diagnosing the problem and solving it?
I know at 10 mpg this will never be a daily commuter.

Do you have a check engine light? If not, I would just do an oil change and tune up if you are due and put that treatment in if you must and try again. Note, a lot of the time, taking the truck in when it is fully up to temperature will allow it to pass easily.

PS I think it is funny when people driving such an expensive truck think 10mpg is an impediment to daily driver status when gas is $2 a gallon.

I have a VW TDi as well

I wouldn't even try to fix anything yet. Use the stuff and go pass emissions.

evilfij you are correct, and I usually don't dispense such hyperbole. Its more of an inconvenience but as inconveniences go this would be trivial.
I do have a check engine light, but who know if its work. The truck was meant to the a small project truck and was hoping to enjoy it a little before I started working on it.

There is a little box under the passenger side dash. If you cycle the key you can read the codes. Then you can figure out what is wrong and fix it.

My NAS 90 didn't pass one cold December. My mechanic suggested driving it for a while on the hwy and taking it back all warmed up and it passed.

Dollars to donuts you have an o2 sensor failed (code probably says 45..). If it's like mine your driveshaft has hit the passenger side o2 sensor and killed it. Evidence is denting of the o2 sensor body. Or it's something else since a code 45 covers about 85 different items. New cap, rotors and plugs usually help too.. I.e a tune up like Ron suggested. Good luck

Or it's loose, check with a 17mm wrench

Same with Birdman. Here in Colorado the emissions testings facilities suggest bringing the vehicles in warm. Unless the printout is showing something is off, drive it like you stole it for at least 10 miles and try again.

Thanks for advice, I'm going to the mechanic tomorrow to check sensor, will add additive, go drag racing until gas tank is empty. Then go to a different shop.

In some states a check or service engine light illuminated is an automatic fail... I'd go back and ask for a printout detailing which section of the test it failed. It may have passed with flying colors except for the visual (check/service engine light).

Good luck.

You don't need to go to a mechanic. The box is right there and will display codes as you cycle the key.

If it comes on when you first turn the key and then goes out, it works.
