So is a check engine light an automatic kiss of death in OREGON when it comes to registering a vehicle? I had a couple of Cherokees with check engine lights on most of the time for decades. For the life of me I don’t recall if I ever got smogged at DEQ while the lights were actually on. Seems to me I must’ve, but maybe not. They both ran perfectly for years and got decent mileage too (for Jeeps). I ask because I looked at a nice used Ford Ranger in Vancouver for my girlfriend’s son today, and the check engine light was on. We were back-pedaling out of there when the owner showed us a recent WASHINGTON smog cert and assured us that “if it passes, it passes,” light or not. Maybe so in Washington, or maybe not… We agreed to chat again this week if: A.) He fixes it. B.) I hear something similar from Oregon DEQ after they open up again on Tuesday. Maybe WA and OR have different rules? Tell me what you guys know. (Or show me a decent small pickup without a check engine light…) I’m also curious if there’s something to be done about the musty smell in my own beater 4WD. It had a major rain leak a couple years ago. It’s fixed now, but I can always smell something dank in the seats and headliner when it’s been closed up for awhile. Tossed all the carpeting, but it persists. Anything I can use in there this summer to eradicate that odor once and for all? Thanks in advance.
