Re: the end of smogcheck as we know it ?

An OBD1 Lincoln came in a few days ago for an EVAP leak diagnosis. It had recently failed at a STAR station for that and only that. I base-lined it with my LPFET and it immediately passed. I took a closer look at the canister plumbing, and actually saw the STAR inspector's pinch marks ... ON THE PURGE LINE! At least it wasn't the A/C liquid line, like my friend Scott's Grand Marquis from a couple of years ago.
