    The answer to your question!!
    No way we can know which emissions it has! It will be either Federal or Caifornia.

    Hey, it's all good!! I am just glad it is not a question about the steering wheel not returning to center after bleeding brakes. Lol!
    Ps, iguess it is just too hard to look for that emissions info. to be sure, as we suggested!!

    Being that you are in New York, if your car was originally sold in New York then it does have California Emissions, we have the same here in Pa. since 2004.
