Can anyone help me with my emissions problem. 96 with 195,000 runs fine but check engine light went on months ago. Mechanic checked code says its fine to drive but will not pass emissions test. There is bit of smoke from exhaust but I think this is related to rings or valves. One more year to vintage status in my state and then no more emissions tests but registration runs out in two months. $900 estimate to service emissions. reasonably handy. Is it possible to remedy this myself? thanks

First off, what is the code? If you can't get that from the mechanic, maybe he's blowing you some smoke. You could go to an auto parts store to get it scanned for free. They may also give you a printout with their parts suggestion. but don't just buy their suggestion either. Their Bosch O2 sensor may not work as well as the OEM or Denso sensor- if that's all that's needed.
