SoCal What were the readings from your smog inspection. It can show if there is an exhaust leak or if its running rich or lean

I have not switched gas. That would actually play a factor?

I purchased a used vehical once and had the engine light come on a few days later. The vehica;s previous owner had modified the engine for more performance, and had the engine computer reprogramed. However, when the dealership got the vehcial they reflashed the engine calibraton back to factory, causeing the engine to not run correctly. In my case it threw P0172 System Too Rich. So it may not be from something YOU did, but possibly something the previous owner did. In my case there was a sticker on the engine computer that told me what company had originally reporogramed it, and was able to contact them for reprograming. Alls good now.

Have you replaced the gas cap with a locking one?

Has there been any recent work done on the Jeep - like a tune up before the test?

Have you switched gas - different brand, E10?

Thanks man, i will assess in that matter for starters!

AngelJK The codes
06-18-2013 11:58 PM
AngelJK Here are the codes. The lady said to be interested about the "possibilities" and didn't pay too much attention to the "definition." Done at auto zone though.. Is that the OBD 2?

Find someone with an OBD2 scanner and find out what the fault code is. Anything else is a guess.

Who is they?

Check engine light during smog??

Got a smog test done yesterday and while the gentleman was doing his thing on the computer, I noticed that the CE light came on. I didn't say anything out of fear of failing but what the heck?!

It turned off later that day, and came back On when I pumped gas.

Then it turned off and came back on the next day when I had to used 4low.

What do you guys/girls think?
