I had a Smog test in California on my Dodge Dakota Truck 3.9L Engine. Because of high NOX, it was at 15 on the MPG test portion. The mechanic said it needs to have the injectors cleaned. What is your take on this? All other parameters of smog test passed.
Is anyone able to tell me the cargo dimensions in inches and how big the rear cargo door opening is on this make and model vehicle? I like what I'm hearing about the 30mpg eco-boost but I show dogs and need certain cargo dimensions to travel with their dog crates. Thanks.
