Monitors Not ready Emissions!

Postby astronot [OP] » April 3rd 2017, 3:42am

Need to get the van inspected and had been doing some work on it and disconnected the battery. The scanner was reading that my evap, catalyst and EGR was not ready after driving it around for almost a week. I was scratching me head. I then realized that my temp gauge had been acting funny ever since I added some coolant a little while ago. Well I did the thermostat and within a 5 minute drive the rest of the monitors readied up. Just wanted to post this because I found it interesting. I didn't know that a thermostat could cause the problems I was experiencing but apparently the engine wasn't getting up to temperature. Just found this interesting and wanted to share.

Cool beans. Probably did not effect the EVAP though.
