Whats up, new '95 325is owner here.New to the forum
So I'm not new to Bimmers or cars in general but I know nothing about the smog check procedure..Took my 36(194k) in and it only failed the 15mph test in the HCM category(151 PPM). It passed earlier this Feb!!?
Believe its a unburned/fuel related effect.
In the technicians notes it says the EVAP was inaccessible.
My searches regarding evap units in respect to a 325 and smog was unsuccessful.Most of the info related to the evap and A/C?
Does the EVAP has a functional test in addition to the visual inspection?
The previous smog records state different result for the EVAP functional and
The previous owner has also deleted the A/C belt..Could this effect the smog result, and does the A/C belt need to be attached for proper EVAP functioning?
I'm in the process of plug & VC gasket replacement..Wondering if i should attach the A/c belt while I'm at it.
I would greatly appreciate the help.
BTW: NICE CARS..One day mine will looks at good as you fellow members..Pics coming soon!!
