Hello to all!
I Stand.

Me name is Jordi and I'm from Catalonia, 3 yeras ago that I own a 1985 Pontiac Fiero.
I buy cherp car, but have a " embargo " of the former owner.... Now the car is already clean of debts!!
A one yerar that in the workshop for repairs start the car and do things, I brought a lot in thefierostore.com because I have made a " tune-up" engine and arroud the car... The car is 11 years stationary, motionless.... The last saturday I was the ITV... In USA I know the name is EMISSION TEST... But I have a several problems in my car... The engine its poisonous... The maxim limit in here its 3 but my car reach at 12.3... Very dangerous, in Smoke Control... I'm a little angry, because I've spent so much money and the car still does not work well....

In Here, in Catalonia, " Spain " all parts to buy in USA, have a surcharge for the government we have... That its provised in 21% more parts + shiping.... I do not want to hate!!! ahahahha LOL!

Delighted to find this website! And Say hello to all!!

Hello there, I won't be the best of help on the emissions testing as we don't have it here. Welcome!

The catalytic converter in the exhaust system would definitely cause a major spike though.

We have an old friend in Spain that used to be a member here on the forum, he asked to be band and was so now you can't get ahold of him here but if you would like to send me a PM and I would be glad to get you in touch with him. Nick knows more about Fieros and cars in general than most mechanics I know.

Nick Cann I think is his full name. and he lives in Catalina (SP) I think, eastern side of Spain.

Welcome to the nut house.

Welcome! Does Spain have an exemption for cars over a certain age, maybe you can get it exempted from emission rules. It sounds like it may be burning oil, has the pcv valve been replaced?

from the trouble Nick had with his Miata I don't think so, he had all sorts of trouble with that one, to the point of not ever getting it on the road, he actually had to buy another one that was already registered in Spain in order to drive it.

Yes, the 02 sensor could be sending bad information. A new one does not cost much.

Do you still have the Catalytic Converter...(CAT)?

LoL.... We cannot do anything... The government does not have money and steals the citizen... This is it Spain... Now he says Europe and USA that is going to unify the market (not if it is true) probably then we do not pay custom forms... Who knows...
But me also... I buying in USA... And arrived to Spain I also go to pay 21% from my parts.... If you buy in China... You do not pay anything... Shameful... GGGGGGrrrrr.....
