1 Answer


Are you in California, or some other state ? I know CA is very strict about emissions... but here are some things you could look at before engine rebuild or replacement: 1) fuel octane booster (pour it in your gas tank) 2) engine tune-up (replace spark plugs, etc.) 3) replace 02 sensor 4) replace catalytic converter HTH, & love the Sol !
