uh, I moved to cali from utah with non-california emissions on my ZJ and passed the test every time I took it in. I lived in a rural area, so perhaps that made a difference.


93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

How often do you check the things you mentioned between normal oil changes? Do you always carry a set of tools on your vehicle? Like I wrote, a properly maintained vehicle will really not break down any easier than a newer one.

It sure is a good idea to check certain things before going on a long road trip and do occasional checks during it, but holy crap, you're not trying to drive around the world in rough terrain..
