@  KennyL : (07 July 2015 - 04:03 AM) Oh, the secondary Facebook page was made by Joshua Myers during the time stratusphere.net was down and he made me one of the admins. I guess he didn't know there was already a "stratusphere" page. The secondary "stratusphere forum" page has gathered a pretty good sense of community, though. The original page about died out and the new one is basically limited to those of us who are still interested. :)
@  Dylan214 : (06 July 2015 - 05:26 AM) oh well I think KennyL and few other guys made it. lol
@  KennyL : (06 July 2015 - 03:53 AM) Mr. Ronz, if the wife is feeling nice I may be able to help you out...heh. I still want that busted 2.4 engine you built, it'd be fun to go through and make work again.

Trying to get emission testing and the tech is getting "not ready" codes. I had the battery out replacing some wiring and was thinking this is what knocked me out. I suppose I need to drive the car a while, but how long is long enough to get the computer "ready" for emission testing?? I have no owners manual and my repair manual hasn't yielded the info.

Thanks!

"Not ready" could indicate an ECU failure as well, in which case no amount of time would fix it.

thats incorrect. not ready means you need to complete specific drive cycles for all of the emission controls to complete their self test. once that is done it will be ready. if you have $130 go to sears or auto zone and buy the innova 1003 code scanner. it will tell you wich sensors have completed the self test and wich ones have not. for the ones that have not, you can look in the owners manual and it will tell you how you need to drive to get it to do its test. normally 1-2 days of driving in your normal habits will put everything in the ready status.

the only problem is that every time you dissconnect the battery or use a scanner to erase the codes it gonna put it in the "OBD not ready" status until all the emmission control systems have finished self testing

Technically I was correct - if the ECU is bad, time would never correct it. A new ECU would. :lol:

But thanks for the much better answer and explanation. :whistle:

I definitely like the sound of this answer over Stratuscaster!! :whistle:
Ok, I'll run it through the motions and take it back. I get unlimited retests for my $25 fee, so I'll just use their machine until I pass.

By the way, I'm a cloud newb. I picked this 96 up a few weeks ago for a great deal from a family friend. So far, total investment is under $300 and hoping to run this baby for many miles.

Thanks for the help guys!
