Well, been a while since my last post. I was doing some detailing the other day, and found the dreaded passenger floor being wet. So, I pulled the seat out, carpet up, and insulation out to air out. Propped the carpet up on blocks of wood to let air flow through. I'm now prepared to fix the A/C drain as soon as it stops raining...



Also got an inspection, and barely passed on the rear brakes.

So, next on the list is finish up A/C drain and rear brakes.

Also detailed the engine bay a little

So I have a question may seem dumb but here it is. What are the inspections??
In wisconsin the PO and you sign a title you go to the DMV give them the title and a small fortune, you get new plates and go home. But do.emissions every 2 years but thats just plug into the OBD2 plug and leave a few seconds later. And its only 96 and newer they care about for emissions.

So what do they inspect? What state?

Reflowed the connector pins in the VIC and the "Coolant Sensor" message is now gone... It was indeed the solder joints as explained in a few threads that I've read on this wonderful forum... Now I have to do the same to the '96 Orvis... lol

Some states you have to go to a certified inspection place or to a state trooper and have them inspect that your vehicle meets standards.

In some states, we give half a damn about road safety, so every year, you have to take your vehicle to a certified inspector, who checks to make sure your brakes, lights, seatbelts, and such all work properly. Some places also have emissions testing, where vehicles younger than a certain cutoff are tested by various methods as to whether they meet a standard for emissions.

In California, they don't give a damn about road safety, so they only inspect for emissions every year, and there's basically no such thing as emissions exempt.

In Texas, for example, every year your car has to be safety inspected, and in 17 counties (of 254 total) you also need to have it checked against emissions at the same time. When you do this is determined by a sticker in your windshield that's issued when you pass inspection. My Nissan's says 7/2, which means it was supposed to be inspected again in July of 2012. The PO failed to do that and I've failed to pass emissions. If I passed right now, the sticker would say 10/4 and I'd need to have it inspected in October of 2014 to remain legal. It's independent of the sales process. Now, when you buy a car, you have to go to the DMV within 21 days and change the title to your name and pay the registration fee. Registration then comes due every year in the month you registered it. It's a standard $50.75 plus county fees. The change of title also carries a standard fee plus motor vehicle tax (6.25%), and you must pay that fee plus the rego fee when you change the title. License plates are, however, retained unless the new owner requests new plates. There is no fee to request a new license plate number be assigned to a vehicle when changing the title of ownership.

Yep, california could give two ****s if your car has wooden tires no brakes and no windshield. But heaven help you you try to swap the engine or mess with the exhaust. Gotta stay green!

To be emissions exempt you have to be pre 1973 or so.

The only time we really get anything inspected here in Kansas is when you buy out of state. Other than that I pay tags and taxes every year. Nothing for road saftey or emissions

Believe it or not, we have weeks of 90+ heat in the summer with high humidity. We have what is commonly referred to as a "seasonal climate." What that means is we get the extremes of everything. It's actually one of the reasons I like living here. The only thing that sucks is the seasons usually change overnight and it always messes with my sinuses.

Started it! Drove it around the block! Tried to find an 02 sensor harness at a cpl jy's (no luck), so wired it back together with crimps and some liquid tape.

Maybe now I will let her have new lca's
