    Yes, you will fail emissions with a CEL on. I would get all the old parts back from the dealer, especially the PCM, and find a specialist in your area, for your vehicle, to diagnose it.

    Went to pick up the car ( with code still set ) and started it up and it was running rough as hell, drove it about 1/2 mile down the road and it sounded like it wasn't running on all cyclinders and at a stop sign noticed smoke and the smell of burnt oil. turned around and brought it back. Funny they said it wasn't running like that yesterday. So now it's back in their court. No charge for the parts the replaced trying to fix the code and no charge for the 30+ hours of labor. just waiting to see what they say this time.

    ok so 2 weeks ago after the running on at least 4 or so cylinders they are now waiting on a fuel injector wiring harness. Asked how that could happen and he said "we fix one thing and then 20 other things go wrong". Man I will have practically a new 96 collectors edition by the etime they are finished if they ever get it finished, these guys have put more into the car then it's currently worth.

    Finally got the code fixed Bell Auto and Tire in Glendale,AZ. Sands Chevrolet says they didn't mess with the AC, funny Bell found out there was NO FREON at all in the system. The ECM Sands put in was never Flashed correctly, Bell fixed that and the OPTI-SPARK Sands put in wasn't even installed correctly, they put in the one I got from Davies Corvette in Florida. They are great for C4 parts. My thanx to Bell Auto and Tire for fixing things, even though they did give me back the car with no bars on the gas level. Thanx to all here that provided info regarding this nightmare.
