Deleting - WA State to start testing?
My 2014 w/ 58K miles decided to tell me it's going to start limping in X miles. I remember when I bought this truck I saw lots of threads warning about emissions system problems and I guess my time has come so my first thought was "DELETE!".
I was about to pull the trigger when a buddy talked to a guy we know who owns a transmission shop. The original question was if the shop owner would be willing to do the delete. Not only did he say he wouldn't but he also said he wouldn't even delete his own truck due to upcoming regs in WA state. According to him, although the state is dumping emissions testing themselves, they're privatizing it specifically to catch diesel cheats and asked if he would get certified to do the checks. It seemed a little far-fetched but maybe not a lot given the tree-hugging nature of our leadership.
I can't find a thing on the internet about this. Further, this guy is a bit of a joker and it wouldn't be unlike him to spin a tale for his amusement. Still, I don't want to go to the time and expense if I'm just going to end up with something I can no longer license in a couple of years. I realize I could reinstall the system but I guess I'd rather not do anything if he's even close to being right. Has anyone else heard about anything like this, even in other states?
