"due to irregularities or discrepancies identified during last smog check inspection , this vehicle requires inspection at a Referee station" ummm does this mean this vehicle got a clean pipe or clean plug ? i got one in today , used this site to get ref.# . i guess previous owner was king kleenPiper?
Had a 93 toyota pick up with dual rear wheels and a flat bed give that same referee only certification message, we noticed that it had a monster exhaust leak and the engine's idle was raised high but just low enough to perform a TSI. The bossman didn't want to lose a Shekel so we did a pretest on it instead and it miraculously passed the emissions test despite the exhaust leak (we anticipated dilution errors and an abort) the only thing that stuck out was the high idle, and the illegible aftermarket catalyst which failed for the visual. Maybe the BAR monitors vehicles with excessive dilution levels and raises a red flag whenever they see the exhaust dilution disappear but keep returning after every new inspection cycle as if to imply people use an entirely different vehicle?
