Some cars (Mini Coopers are one I think) ya can't even put used parts on anymore. They won't talk to the computer, and then ya gotta jump through hoops, IF ya can get the dealer to help ya.

I'm hoping I can knock the crap out of a 2002 Honda Accord catalytic converter, and bolt the empty pipe back on. Hopefully there's not a sensor connected that disables the vehicle?

I mean, it ran on a bad c.c. and the only result was the 'check engine' light, and it eventually choking out to the point of being un-drivable.

Mine has an oxygen sensor before and after each cat.

What kinda car, Bruce? And I'm thinking it does have a sensor, but I'm hoping the sensor just turns on the check engine light.

Prolly the SSR.

On some older cars some sensors can be tricked with grounding modifications.

The 'rents had a 91 Lincoln with the air bag suspension that they replaced with a strut kit from Strutmaster(s). A warning light was on all the time telling them the air suspension was malfunctioning. A mechanic figured out how to fool the computer by grounding the sensor to the chassis. No more warning light.

Don't know if ya can do that on more modern cars.

When the air suspension worked, that Lincoln was the smoothest ride I've ever experienced.

Yes, the '06 SSR. Four oxygen sensors, one before and one after each cat.

Flint, you don't have emission testing in your state? We have to pass a test every other year in Virginia. They stick a wand up the tailpipe and take measurements.

I just priced some catalytic converters. Everything but milk is ever-more expensive, everything but milk and catalytic converters, it seems. Just a few years ago they cost stupid money. I mean stu. Pid. money.

Catalytic converters are cheaper than shit.

I live in a rural county, there's no vehicle inspection at all.

What the what? I guess your registration stickers there are still separate from your inspection stickers?

PA said they saved a million dollars a year by eliminating the registration sticker on the plate. It's not needed because in order to get the inspection sticker for the windshield the registration must be valid. Around here there are two stickers on the glass. One is safety inspection and the other is emissions. Rural counties don't do emissions.

We've got the licence plate sticker for registration, and two stickers for the glass. One is proof of automobile property taxes paid to the county and the other is safety inspection. Emissions is a piece of paper for the glove box, but you don't get the window safety inspection sticker without the piece of paper.

No inspection, no inspection sticker.
________________________________________________

We got one sticker, on the plate, for registration proof.

No inspection, unless your titling a car from out of state, and even then it's only to check that all the VIN numbers match.

I found out the hard way once (ONCE!), those three VIN numbers better match. Bought a car in TN off a car lot, that had three different numbers.
