Diesel Inspection

My roommate took his 97 F350 7.3 to get inspected today at a Shell station and the guy asked him if he has a muffler and cat. When my roommate said no the guy said it won't pass emissions. I was under the impression that here in Brazos county diesels don't have emissions? Has anyone else in this area had problems with this? This is important to me too because I have the inspection on my 95 coming up soon and I also dont have a muffler or cat. Thanks!

In Texas emissions are done by county. In Harris county they have emissions but I didn't think Brazos county had it. I know mufflers don't matter for emissions but they're still a required part of the exhaust system for most inspections...I always thought diesels were different though.

I know it won't help you any, but last year, when my brother-in-law had his inspected in Arlington, they just did a safety inspection and no emissions.

Honestly, I didn't think they put Cat's on till the later years because they weren't very effective since the exhaust doesn't get as hot as gasser's do unless they are modified.

That Shell station was just stupid. He took it elsewhere and they did safety no problem. Brazos county doesn't have emissions. All is well. Thanks yall.

I'm actually a certified inspector now. No diesel emission testing in Texas at all. Gasoline emissions testing is by county. But you are supposed to have all factory exhaust equipment or comparable equipment in place. So you have to have a muffler. If it came with a CAT you're supposed to have one on there.

haha Hey go for it. At our place (not naming which one) we just check lights, for cracked lenses, and that's it. If it's a gas we gotta do the whole plug it into the computer thing though.
