i went to have my emissions tested today as it expires this month, i had it tested in early march but it failed miserably. So i replaced the Cat thinking that was likely the problem. Put in a TT high-flow brand new. Go to get it tested today, and there has been little to no change. (can't tell exactly cause i lost the sheet from the last one) but the numbers aren't even close to the limit. The guy suggested changing the air filter and the O2 sensor to help with the CO levels, but didn't know what to do about the rest cause the Cat is supposed to fix that....
Is it worth the $120 for a new O2 sensor you think? i really have no idea where to go from here......pretty mad/bummed....any suggestions would be nice....
TIA
