NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

Heres the problem, the car I want to buy cannot pass inspection so I need to go the expensive route for one. I can get one for $100 at my local mechanic but is anyone here a mechanic that could get me one for about $50. Ill pay with paypal and you could ship it. I need one for NJ though. Thanks

$100-120 is what I pay. My main hookup was $80 but they got all new equipment or some BS like that and nearly doubled the price.

I'll talk to the guy this weekend, chances are he won't have a problem with it but you will probably need to fax him your registration and a copy of your driver's license.

I would get it at my mechanic but he is a jerk and I would rather pay $20 extra to someone else than get it from him

Do you think it's wise to post something illegal on a public board? I don't care, just curious.

Do you know how many millions of camaros there could be in the area?
People post about street racing. Half the cars with aftermarket exhaust in NJ probably have "fake" inspection stickers.

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

Actually I think pretty much everyone in NJ has either a fake or paid for one. You couldn't even pass emmissions even if your car was running like new lol! And if its carb you already failed before you tried...

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

Ive been driving around with a 2004 inspection sticker for as long as I can remember, and surprisingly, Ive never been bothered about it.

It would be nice to get a legit one, tho. Whats actually involved in the NJ inspections now for pre-OBDII cars? Getting my newer car to pass is gravy since they ditched the mechanical part. They just scan for codes, test the gas cap, and Im out. I assume for the older ones its the treadmill and gascap check? Sniffer wont be an issue since I have SFI, but I have no EGR, and my gas tank is just vented to atmosphere w/o any CCP.

I can get one for $85, but I dont feel like paying.

Taking it to the local inspection station might be interesting since I have manual steering (s10 box) and a stick. When I take my car in for alignment or tires, I have to drive it for them because they cant turn the wheel.

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

You're lucky, the local cops nailed my Z71 with a 2 year old sticker quiet a few times (probably around 2 dozen times) but always just gave me verbal warnings. I decided to try something different; I took my inspection sticker off completely and that worked for a while. I left the truck in town for a few hours at night and I guess they were searching the parking lot for vehicles with expired inspection stickers. I arrived to see my truck with two local cop cars parked near it. Upon walking to my truck they started yelling at me and told me they watched me roll around with an expired inspection sticker for 8 months and no inspection sticker for 3 months and they insisted my truck get impounded on the spot. Lucky for me I can talk my way just about out of anything and they ended the night with something along the lines of "take your truck and get the hell out of here and do not let us find this truck without a good sticker".
I imagine my IROC would get nailed instantly.

The local state inspection station told me (coming from the head person over there) if I ran a truck lifted above 4" they can not fail it because they can only scan it, sniff it, and check the vent. Good way to avoid the tilt test eh?

Thats sort of what I figured.

So long as they dont pop the hood or poke around too much, I should be ok.

Damn. Thats really harsh. Im pretty much one of the only ones with an old car where I am, so they usually dont bother to do that sort of thing. Ive actually never been pulled over in the camaro. Sort of paradoxical as Ive been nailed multiple times for speeding in my DD.

Our age difference probably is the largest key factor
I have a perfectly clean driving record but they still loved to hassle my Z71. My IROC was out and about in their town a few times, no matter where I drove I was destined to have a cop behind me. So now I drive a commercial pickup truck around and they no longer bother me (I assume out of respect for my boss).
On the other hand the local state police seem to really love all my vehicles

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

I'm a VA State Inspector, and I know the laws in NJ are much more strict when it comes to passing the state inspection. As for me, you couldn't pay me enough to sell a State Inspection sticker illegally. No one! is worth me loosing my license, my job, a $25,000.00 fine, and up to 1 yr in jail. Just my 2 cents.......

A lot of guys that have shops around here sell stickers. the NJ inspection has become much more lenient in the past 6-8 months. Their is no longer any sort of safety inspection, they just check for codes, emissions, and the gas cap test.

You guys are morons for talking about buying fake inspection stickers on a public forum... You guys realize that you can be charged with many crimes including "tampering with public records" right?

Go nag the street racers.

It's not a fake inspection sticker. If you were to scan it, it would come up as if my vehicle went through inspection. Hell, I can go fail state inspection and another shop can change it to say that I passed everything except for a computer scan.

Yeah, theyre actually real stickers for me. The guy just turns the other way while he does the inspection and pretends its all good, and then sticks it on. If they question me or him, I just say that I took the stuff off after I went thru. Whats the worst theyll do? Give you a ticket for taking off the emmissions and make you go for re-inspection? The shop owner is teh one who really takes the risk. Big fine for issuing stickers w/o doing a proper inspection.

The point is that by talking about such a thing on a public forum you run the risk of getting these shops that do it in huge trouble... All it takes is for one dope to see this thread and post "oh I pay $80 for my stickers at [such and such place]!" and potentially causing a lot of problems. Why even risk it?

The first rule of NJ inspection sticker buying is you dont talk about NJ inspection sticker buying...

haha sig worthy?

and since they cut so many things, i dont see why it'd be too hard to have them running clean enough to pass legit. i was lucky and passed, 2 days later my muffler blew out, a few weeks later the stock cat-back fell off.

woops

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

We got a 454 to pass inspection in a TBI year 3rd gen. My buddy detuned it, it ran like crap but it passed the tail pipe sniffer.
The point is some of us can't be bothered to change things just to switch it all back after inspection... it's easier to just pay some money.

this thread is full of fail.

I cant believe that you guys are complaining about having to pay 100 bux for a fake sticker, and are trying to find a "better deal", seriously???? any price for a fake sticker is a good price, since most sane shop owners would NEVER sell a inspection sticker because of the consequences. If i needed one, i would be damn happy to pay 100 bux for a real sticker.


The loophole in NJ used to be the "collector car" status, for cars under 25 years old. you were limited to 3k miles a year, but there was no inspection, just an odometer check to make sure it was working. I had my 86 under this for years before i missed the inspection date one year and lost my status, that was 2 years or so ago, and it was at that time that everything changed and you cant get the "collector car" status as easily as you once were able. Fortunately, my 86 is 25 this year, so i can get QQ tags and be done with it.

FWIW, i have had an expired collector sticker in the windshield since early 09, and never had an issue.

my 92 passed with flying colors, so no issue there.

The first rule of NJ inspection sticker buying is you dont talk about NJ inspection sticker buying...
Theres no way in hell Im going to tell anyone where I go, or what the guys name is. If someone else wants to do that, well, the onus is on them...

You could make the argument that someone might be watching, but seeing how broke the state is that they cant even be bothered to do anything other than check the gas cap and hook up a scantool, I dont think thats too likely.

Since they dumped the mechanical part, Im just going to the inspection since I already essentially have a late model engine with most of the emmissions equipment already there by default.

Im not complaining, but its kind of a waste of money since theyve eased up the requirements. Used to fail for slow blinkers and stuff. Now THAT is annoying having to worry about small stuff just to get thru.

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

I don't have any of the stock emission stuff besides the cat, i went to the motor vehicle twice for inspection and everything was good but emissions, not by much but it didn't pass so i decided to take it to a private inspection center, all they had to do was tune the carburetor and the timing for the test and it passed, of course you can't do that on the motor vehicle, and the car is not drivable tunned that, after the test he tunned the engine the way it was before and i paid $70.00 for 1 hour fee and $30.00 for state inspection, nothing illegal there, now injection systems night be a little more complicated.

thats true! hopefully the current inspection laws stick around for a while. But i assume the "fix it" tickets will be more expensive.

Yeah, thats one problem is that the cat requires stoich AFRs to work properly, and leaner AFRs make engines less drivable. You can increase the power and drivability by carefully tuning the spark advance to maximize the power, adn the engine will run very well and get good fuel economy, but that then drives the NOx way up due to the hot combusion if you dont have EGR, which is why they probably had to adjust that as well. The net result is that the power goes down at P/T.

I passed it legitimately with my TBI system last time, which essentially has the same tune that Im using now. For me, the NOx will be the most likely thing to fail for since I tend to try to run the engine a bit lean for better economy. The exhaust doesnt have any odor at all with the cat, so theres probably not much HCs and CO, but the NOx, I have no idea...

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

I just got back from spending pretty much most of my afternoon at the damn state inspection station. These people are IDIOTS! First, they pulled the car into the regular OBD-II inspection line, and then realized that the car isnt in the system, probably since Ive been using "inspection" stickers. The guy said he couldnt inspect it w/o the weight. They next (and I mean "they" as it brought the entire operation to a halt for 45 minutes while ALL of them) tried to figure out how much my car weighed. While they where buisy with this, I wondered around the station and realized that theres no dyno, or five gas analyser in sight. How did they expect to inspect it? Try to scan it as an OBD-II car? Scan it as an OBD-1? Hand-held 5-gas with idle test only? I can see them just pulling it up to the scanner and saying "uuhhhh, for some reason the car shows up as a 1999 chevy express van on our system. Whats the deal?"

They want me to take it to a weight station, get it weighed with an exact weight, and get a signature from the authority having jurisdiction there that its correct. To hell with that. Ill just buy the damn thing or get a private inspection. Even if I did get it weighed, they would probably refuse to inspect it for something else. Maybe thats the reason why I hardly ever see any old cars in my area

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

Holy **** Batman!!!

I left NJ in 1981 and it was a pain in the *** then!

Sounds easier now!

Back then I don't remember any option other than the LONG wait in a LONG line at the state inspection station on rt 22 in Union by the drive in movie... and if you failed you had like 30 days to get it fixed and had to go back to the LONG line and the LONG wait at the state inspection station! They drove your car and stomped on the brakes on pads that measured the braking of each wheel, checked your headlight alingment, blinkers, emergency brake, sniffer, windsheild wipers, horn, muffler and exhaust, leaks, bumper height, tires sticking out. You could even fail for to much rust!

I remeber guys that had hot rods that actually changed their motor to a stock one, then back every year. You guys got it easy now. I guess there's no more street racing at ave P in Newark on Friday nights? When you went to racway park you had to write 'No Time" on your window so your time and speed did not show up on the finish line sign...

Although I have not lived anywhere that had any inspection since!

Man I don't miss NJ...

I remember that with my old car. Having to wait forever for them to dick around with it and check everything. Fortunately, the long line is history as they just scan it, check the cap, and slap on a sticker. Id be even happier if they just said to hell with it altogether.

What's with the cap? The gas cap? That seems to be a waste of time...

They want to catch cars that are leaking HC's thru the fuel system. I got nailed by it the first time I took my DD. It has one of the newer 1/2 turn type GM caps. Failed because the cap leaked and had to spend $15 on a new cap to pass. It is BS.

Re: NJ Inspection sticker, you know what I mean :)

Wow they are really hard on the HC! Here in Idaho we don't even have recovery on the fuel pump handles at the gas station.

Can you pump your own gas there yet? That was my first job I had in high school was pumping gas. Never saw a full service gas station since then... my mom moved out here a couple years ago when my sister passed away and she has never pumped gas in her life...

Nope. Still have full service. Thats one thing I like about traveling. Get to just pump your own gas and go. A lot faster than having to wait for someone to come over and do it for you.

This time around I was able to pass inspection legally, all I needed was a catalytic converter, fine carburator tuning and 3 visits to the local DMV inspection station

You have way bigger problems with your Civic then inspection. How is the engine even running with those malfunctions, it should be in 'limp home" mode.
