4. INSERT CO/HC METER TESTING PROBE AT LEAST 40 cm (1.3 ft) INTO TAILPIPE DURING IDLING
5. IMMEDIATELY CHECK CO/HC CONCENTRATION AT IDLE AND/OR 2,500 RPM
HINT: When performing the 2 mode (2,500 rpm and idle) test, follow the measurement order prescribed by the applicable local regulations.
HINT: If the CO/HC concentration does not comply with the regulations, perform troubleshooting in the order given below. See the table below for possible causes, and then inspect and correct the applicable causes if necessary.
