Hi guys, i got a letter notified me that a citation being issued. A UC car with a missing or modified Positive Crankcase Ventilation System. This is my first citation and i am not sure what is going to happen ? is my score go down, lose my STAR, will i be on probation for a period of time ? Anyone know please help me . Thank you very much.
I am very sorry to hear that. Unfortunately our carrier sucks because we keep getting zapped. I got a ticket just because my business partner got two mistakes two years ago and I had to pay his price just because the business was INC and I kept the name. $1500 Dollars. Was this your 1st time if it was I don't think you loose your Star but you have to pay the fine.
I wish you best luck.
Best advice is to go into the "Citation Conference" with an open mind.
LISTEN very carefully to the BAR representative at the field office.
Do "go off" on the BAR Rep., he has to follow certain guidelines during the
Don't waste your time and money defending yourself in court.
You will pay "investigation cost", it is NOT a Fine.
You will eventually loose your STAR Certification.
You may Re-apply for STAR One Year AFTER the effective date of the citation.
It is NOT Probation.
This information is available in the BAR regulations book.
This is the kind of shit that makes me sick. This isn't a real-world failure or modification. These assholes are so corrupt, they have to disconnect or modify shit that isn't a realistic failure. I'm surprised they haven't started giving out citations for ball-bearings inside vacuum lines to the EGR. Then again, they'd probably get away with it since there's no serious oversight in this program.
... I'm surprised they haven't started giving out citations for ball-bearings inside vacuum lines to the EGR ...
I'm not certain to what extent, but I believe that they did use vacuum line BBs and/or block-off gaskets for UC TSI vehicles. Funny thing is, I have encountered multiple examples of both in my test-and-repair career, and I'm pretty sure that none of them (except that one TSI digital-EGR Pontiac with no RPM drop about eight years ago) were UC ... so in my neighborhood, sneaky EGR modifications are "real-world".
