Hi, My name is***** am giving you a link for the inspectors guide and you should look at page 19. It list your vehicle specifically and says for the inspector to run the drive cycle. It is not your car but the way they inspected your car. Talk to the inspector and get them to reinspect it and do the drive cycle test. Please accept answer and rate me 5 STARS. Thanks.
