one question, was this test done on a chassis dyno, rear wheels spinning on rollers or the vehicle in park while holding the engine at a high idle and then up to the 2500 rpm?<p>however, it does look like it passed and the numbers I see indicate a good solid engine being tended to by a good working fuel and ignition systems

Re: (username)

well by the fact that they did the test at 25 mph id guess it was on a dyno but i wasnt there so maybe they did it the other way. yes i did pass, i knew i would, i just wanted to know what could use a bit of a tuning, but this weekend i took out a spark plug, and the PO had ALOT of work done right before it was sold to me. new plugs, belts, alternator, oil, every possible seal on the engine, air filter, wires, all that jazz. i did get a 2-3-2 code and it does have a bit of a bizzare idle sometimes, ie it sounds like it starts to struggle a little and the rpm drops to around 400 then jumps up like the ecu catches it and compensates... whats the deal?? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Camy,<p>There should be a column in those results some where that say the max and the min of hydro carbons. It is then compaired to what your car produces and that is how they pass/fail. Your car which is typical of Volvos with Lambda Sond, passed with good results.<p>My old 242GT passed CA emissions with results like yours, even with a heavy cam and big bore and stroke.
