Okay, the short version... August '05 had to get the car reg'd again so I took it in for smog. Smog guy sees that the check engine light is on, says car won't pass no matter what, get that fixed first. Take it to my mech, he says it could be a number of probs. Mind you the car was in decent shape but the car-comp wasn't lying. Replaced the frnt. oxygen sensor, 2 ignition coils nothing fixed the light. Went to Dealer to have the ETS looked at they find software defect, replace software, no fix. They replace the entire Electronic Throttle System (thank god for extended warranties) still no fix. We find a faulty Camshaft reset valve and replace it, still no fix. Both my mech. and the dealer can't pinpoint the problem so I go to DMV. They tell me to junk it or sell it. IDIOTS!!! Finally they say go to Smog Referee to get a waiver. He is stumped too and can't pass it!! Meanwhile One Year has gone buy and I'm still not registered.
What can I do????????????
