Should be either on top of the front support bracket that the radiator mounts to, or on the inside of the hood. Usually it's the first though.

If you can take a picture and post, we can let you know what you have. But it should be fairly easy to decipher.

Agreed, always on the hood, or near the radiator.

Keep in mind that new California law states that effective January 1st 2010, all diesel powered vehicles 2004 and newer are requiring an inspection. Same inspection rules apply. However this time you dont actually get it smogged. Just an inspection to ensure that your intake/exhaust/ecu, ect is all CARB legal.

Correct.

I mention it in the other thread, but I believe it's the year the OBDII ports were first put in use, 1998 I believe. Did that get changed?

1998 is correct, according to the BAR website.

I also found this......
http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vehindustry/vi...09/09vin28.pdf - So...IF I UNDERSTAND it correctly, IF your VIN ends with an even number, you get inspected this year (being it's an even year). IF your VIN ends with an odd number you get inspected in 2011. After that, it will be every two years, like gas-powered vehicles are done now. I looked at my VIN....It ends odd....I'm looking at next year to get inspected.

OBD2 was first used in 1996. Some manufacturers had it prior, but it was required in 1996 for gas engines.

This is what the DMV says about the diesels

Currently, smog inspections are required for all vehicles except diesel powered vehicles manufactured prior to 1998 or with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVWR) of more than 14,000 lbs, electric, natural gas powered vehicles over 14,000 lbs, hybrids, motorcycles, trailers, or gasoline powered vehicles 1975 and older.

There's an interesting article in the Tribune here (San Gabriel Valley Tribune) talking about a bill to change the way they currently test gas vehicles.

Proposed law aims to reduce smog test fraud - SGVTribune.com

Legislation introduced this week by Assemblyman Mike Eng of Monterey Park, would radically change the way the tests are conducted and potentially affect some 23 million California motorists.

The proposed bill would phase out the biannual tailpipe and treadmill inspections except for cars built before 1996. Newer cars have on-board diagnostic systems.

Under the proposal, the state would permit a limited number of the 7,000 stations now doing smog checks to keep performing tailpipe tests. They would be chosen for their thoroughness under a new ranking system.

Most inspection stations would use scanners that can access the car's computerized data on pollution control systems and record the vehicle identification number. That method, currently used in 22 states, would make it harder to falsify test results.

The proposal, which would raise the fines for Smog Check fraud, sponsored by the California Air Resources Board and the Bureau of Automotive Repair, which overseas the state's Smog Check program.

A state audit released Tuesday evaluated roadside tests of more than 6,000 older cars between 2003 and 2006. It found that more then half of the cars that pumped out too much pollution in the roadside test initially failed smog checks but later passed after the supposedly had been repaired.

In my opinion the whole smog thing is a crime anyway. Its just another way for the California government to draw in some extra coin. In doing so, they make the lives of the people a pain in the ***. I would enjoy California, and would consider living here permanently if the state gov't wasnt run by retards who think that they know what is best for California.
