Disadvantage,,,,,,, it may bother you if you're environmentally conscious. LOLjbsplus3 said:other than emissions........what are the advants and disadvants?
Myonly worry is that this new tool that the DMV is making inspection stations purchase, does more than read for a code, but reads if a code is actually supposed to be triggered. If so, I'll be beat, which is why I hung onto my stock cat.NYSDMV said:How will the inspector conduct the new emissions inspection?
The inspector will complete the same low-enhanced emissions inspection that is currently required for the Upstate Area. To conduct the additional test of the OBDII, the inspector will use the OBDII cable to connect the NYVIP equipment to the OBDII diagnostic link connector (DLC) on the vehicle.
A vehicle will fail the OBDII test if:
The DLC on the vehicle is broken or gone.
The OBDII malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the vehicle does not illuminate when the ignition is set to the ON position and the engine is not in operation.
The MIL remains illuminated when the engine is in operation.
The OBDII readiness monitors on the vehicle report that the OBDII system is not ready for the test.
