So I replace that but it is still fail. So what will be the problem? It will be good to get some suggestions to resolve problem so I can drive it.


A. I could give you a hundred suggestions, and any one, or none, of them would fix the problem.

The first thing I would do is give it a good tune-up. New NGK ZFR5F-11 spark plugs gapped at 0.040", new distributor cap and rotor, new ignition wires, new air and fuel filters and valve adjustment will, very likely cure the high emissions problem.
