AZ emissions help

Does anyone know of a good mechanic shop that can help me with emissions testing? There is something seriously wrong with my 1990 YJ 4.2 with weber carb and I need to find someone who can fix it for me. I've added a fuel pressure regulator, tuned the carb as best as I could and tried a lot of different options. It's not looking very good so I would like to enlist some professional help.

I called them and they were going to call me back with a guy that knows webers. I didn't hear from them last night so since today is a holiday I will call again tomorrow. Thanks for the recommendation!

Not sure if your problem got resolved, but if there are no "issues" with the jeep and you just need to pass emissions, find someone in Tucson and use their address to get plates and registration updated. My In-law couldn't pass emissions in Maricopa and when she moved to Tucson she just got a two year sticker.

I'd rather get it passing emissions and register it at my address. Environmentally friendly, blah blah.

I'm going for the test tomorrow after having a new muffler and cat installed today. The cat was very, very clogged because the PO had the timing off so badly it was running rich and destroyed it. It's running great now and I hope it'll pass. If not I'll be at the $450 cap for repairs and get a free pass.

I think it is definitely possible to pass emissions with the weber. It does take proper jetting, tuning and capping of the removed exhaust piping to the cat and downpipe to get it running right.

This will not work. The applicant must provide a utility bill in the owner's name at that address, a lease, or rental agreement to residential property that shows the registered owner's occupancy of that property to AZDOT/MVD and AZDEQ. It is a criminal offense to do what you suggest.

ADEQ: Air Quality Division: Vehicle Emissions: Exemptions from Testing

Air Quality Division: Vehicle Emissions: Exemptions from Testing Military Out of State Exemption
If you are active duty military, stationed outside of Arizona, you may qualify for a military out of state exemption. This exemption is for vehicles that will not be in use. If the vehicle is to be driven by someone else, use the regular Out of State exemption.

To apply, you must complete and sign the application form below and obtain your Commanding Officer's signature. Application must be made within 90 days prior to expiration of the current vehicle registration.

New Vehicle Exemption
Arizona exempts from emissions testing most vehicles of the newest five model years. In 2012, most 2008 and newer model year motor vehicles (except reconstructed vehicles) do not require an emissions test.

Vehicles Registered Outside of the Vehicle Emissions Control Areas (metro Phoenix and Tucson) in Partially Exempt Zip Codes
The Motor Vehicle Division exempts most vehicles registered outside the vehicle emissions control area based on the residence zip code. However, the zip codes listed below* are considered partial, meaning parts of the area require emissions and some parts are exempt.
*Partial Zip Codes in the Vehicle Emissions Control Areas (effective July 2009):
  • Phoenix Metro Area - Area A:
    85218/85118, 85226, 85232/85132, 85239/85139, 85242/85142, 85243/85143, 85244, 85262, 85263, 85290/85190, 85322, 85326, 85332, 85337, 85339, 85342, 85354, 85390
    (Zip Codes separated by a slash (/) are in the process of being changed by the U.S. Postal Service)
  • Tucson Metro Area - Area B:
    85629, 85641, 85653, 85654, 85658, 85735, 85736, 85739, 85743, 85746, 85747
Vehicle owners who reside in a partial zip code will be identified as "emissions test required" on their vehicle registration renewal form.
Those vehicles may be granted an Out of Area (Status Code 52) Exemption if they are registered in that partial zip code and out of the emission control area boundary. However, if the vehicle is used to commute into the emissions test boundary (area A or area B) for employment or school then by State Law, the vehicle will be required to go through testing.
Note: This information is not targeted to just Maricopa and Pima Counties, but also parts of Pinal and Yavapai.
To verify this information, you may use our VEI Address Locator.
Complete the Emissions Exemption Form (Code 52) and submit to ADEQ or MVD with the rest of these requirements:
  • Photocopy of current vehicle registration for each vehicle;
  • Photocopy of a current utility bill in the name of the applicant, identifying the physical address of applicant's residence
  • Photocopy of the property owner's tax evaluation notice listing the township, range and section of residence. If you do not own the property, we will require a lease/rental agreement.

Thank you again for the help and suggestions everyone. The cat was bad and after a new cat and muffler I passed with flying colors. CO was down to 8.61/20 where before it was 25/20.

I'm legal again! And they said it couldn't be done with a weber 38/38...
