Question type: General

Hello, I have a 1999 Doge Ram Van B1500 that I just
purchased. With me driving it now it's about to be at
150,000 miles. I have been riding on paper tags because of
this coronavirus and the dmv inspection stations and
Regular DMV service locations closed as well. I hear at
slight what might be a valve tap but, since I don't know
what the other owner has done far as fuel used, oil
changes. I haven't done anything to it yet but, I have been
running shell 93 in it a every fuel up and it drives well. I'm
no mechanic but, seems to be no transmission slippage, oil
leaks, other fluid leaks. I don't know why but, this has
always been my dream van!!  I do see I am probably
going to have to replace the headlight switch but, can hold
on as long as I can because it still works and makes the
lights come on but, I can see that there is a short in it and
have to fumble around with it at times.Plus I know that it
doesn't have all the fancy emission regulations that this
newer cars has so I just wanted to know with having to take
it through inspection before I can get it fully registered have
anyone ranned into problems with passing emissions or
should I be concerned because my van gives off a real
exhaust smell(lol) then these newer cars??
