This report discusses the effect on automobile exhaust emissions of specific quick and low cost maintenance repairs which differ from automobile manufacturer specifications. Repairs centered on a simple carburetor adjustment to a universal target idle carbon monoxide (CO) level of 0.2% for 1976 and 1978 model year vehicles which initially failed a state Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) test. Also included in this report is a description of the test program, a description of the test vehicles, and the types of repairs needed to pass the I/M test, the Federal Test Procedure Emissions test and the idle emissions and fuel economy test.
