Sheep Please Help! Emission Label Missing!

Here in lovely California, they tax you too death and heap a pile of steamy regulations on you. And every 2 years it's the time where my beloved truck requires the dreaded STAR smog test.

Little did I know my hood had it's emission sticker removed. So now I'm in need of some help from my fellow D21 owners.

Can someone PLEASE take a picture of the emission label underneath the top left part of the hood.

ANY 1990-1997 2.4L 4 cylinder pickup will do.

Thanks in advance.

Just out of curiosity; what do they use the label for?

You should get a photo pretty quick here. Sadly I have an old V6 so Im no help.

Not really. There is a difference in plumbing from OBD1 to OBD2.

Post the year of your truck.

While you are at it, you should update the info on your truck in your preferences. Right now, yours says "Hardbody". Well, that does NO GOOD on a Hardbody forum.

California Emissions Standards and Federal Emission Standards are different,so I don't believe it can be "any Hardbody".

My hardbody is a 1995 Kingcab RWD MT 4cyl. This truck isn't from California, it's a federal regulated version. I'm under the impression 93' - 97' all have the same engine setup. I tried going thru the dealer to buy one but they stopped making these labels.

I'm not too sure what the sticker is used for. Maybe as a guide to see if all emission parts are still on the engine? All I know is California laws are BS. I might have to scrap the truck for $1500 if I can't get it smogged soon enough.

At this point any picture will work. I'm planning on making a sticker myself and slapping it on the hood with the provided photo.

P.S. tried searching the web and eBay for this sticker. All I was able to get was the part number from the dealer. It's 14805-0S301. I called nissan1 too, waiting for a reply this monday....

Do they actually inspect the vehicle in California? Here in Washington state, they just stick that detector wand up the truck's wazoo (tailpipe) and get the smog readings. They drop some device or other on top of the motor to get the motor revolutions. Then they run the test. If you pass, you pass, if you don't, you have to show you paid at least X amount of dollars trying.

A lot of these Japanese rigs will pass smog even in California, even if you don't HAVE California emissions. One thing that helps is to take them on a fifty-mile freeway run just before you go to the emissions station. Also, here in Washington they work on a kind of sliding scale, depending on the age of the vehicle. (The older it is, the less stringent the emissions requirements) A lot of rigs no longer have the emissions sticker. Or you can no longer read the damn thing anyway. You should call your emissions station, or check at the Department of Vehicle Licensing. These guys will know. A lot of places, if you fail, you just have to come back with a shop receipt that says you spent X dollars trying to have a shop improve emissions, and they will give you a waiver. Chances are good that your 95, with a fresh oil change, tune up, and a good freeway warm up...it will pass emissions anyway. And not to generalize, but on some of these Nissans there isn't a whole lot of difference between California and non-California, but that depends on whether the inspector actually checks your truck to see the California parts are there. Maybe on something from 23 years ago, like yours...they don't. Do they actually INSPECT under the hood there? Or just do the test?

You could try sticking this on there:

Fig. Fig. 32: Vacuum circuit diagram-1992-95 Pick-up, 2.4L engine, Federal



I got it from the Auto Zone website. There are lots of labels there.

Here is the link:
