e-check

I bought a 2001 F250 with a 7.3 PSD in the spring of 2005. In SW Ohio you had to have an e-check done every other year and every time you bought a used car/truck. A diesel was no exception. The e-check is different for a diesel......they measure opacity (hope I spelled it correctly). My truck is stock and they were not able to measure any opacity. If you have to have your diesel tested you should make sure the exhaust system and engine are hot. Also, they did not test if my fuel cap was sealing correctly. They told me diesel fuel doesn't vaporize like gas.

The good news, in SW Ohio e-check ended 12/31/05.:

Here in NE Ohio, we still have ECheck. I took both my car and truck in today to get them done. I turned the Edge Evolution back to "stock" from "extreme" but was still sweating it because I no long have a kitty. Fortunately, it passed no problems. As soon as I pulled out of the ECheck place, I pulled over and reset my Edge back to "extreme". It's amazing how much you miss those extra ponies & foot pounds when you don't have them.

Ohio Echeck only checks for opacity in diesels. Last time I went through with no cat and passed easily. We've had the echeck program for years and it is a royal pain in the butt. Just last month I took my Tbird down while I was home on leave and they wouldn't test it. They said the brake pedal was too low (travel is well within specs) and the gearshift was too hard to move (I'm missing peices of my right shoulder blade and I can move it easily). I suspect it's because the lady couldnt get the seat to move forward, because I saw her getting agitated trying to work it.

If I ever have a problem with my pickup I'll just plate it in Stark county, they don't require echeck there. Could also plate it as a commercial truck.

We don't have anything like that here in Indiana. It's a good thing, and a bad thing. I mean there are certainly some vehicles that just should not be on the road. But then again little minor infractions like they were trying to get you for overlord are just ridiculous.

Tennessee does it...

I live in Nashville and they are doing it. I have a question about upgrading in spite of emissions, but I'll post that in another window. Help if you please...
