The EGR valve may not be functioning correctly allowing too much oxygen to enter into the combustion process. If someone has rebuilt the engine the compression could be at a high enough level that increased levels of oxides of Nitrogen could be produced. Note that high compression and faulty EGR valves that allow too much oxygen both cause the combustion temperature to run higher than designed. High compustion temperatures are the ultimate cause of elevated levels of oxides of Nitrogen. *Engine could also be running too hot and casusing incresed combustion temperatures causing increased oxides of nitrogen

An emissions test is a measure of the exaust gasses being produced buy your vehicle Each vehicle has a set of emission figures and the test is to make sure the vehicle is within the limit of these figures.

Yes sometimes you do not have high enough HCG levels for the test to show postive.

These are thyroid levels if the levels are out of range the test should specify high or low Hope this helps

Depends how far along you are. If it is still early on your levels dropping may cause a lighter test. but if you are say more than 6 weeks, you will likely start bleeding and cramping, even though your tests look the same since your levels were so high to begin with.

every pregnancy test whether urine or blood, works by detecting the hcg hormone. If the levels are high enough it will detect it on the test

It will come out as negative, because the levels of the pregnancy hormones it detects won't be high enough. 2 weeks is the earliest you can take a test, because that's the earliest that hormone levels will be high enough

Serotonin levels can be established via a blood test.

Timing, vacuum, and carburetor jetting can affect CO levels, keep in mind that high 7% or low will cause high hc readings. set timing to factory setting and adjust carb jets for smoothest idle, probably will slow idle down quite a bit so after that adjust the idle speed screw until idle speed is at normal. you will need to reset after test is done. All settings must be at optimum for burning fuel as co is unburnt fuel, that is why vacuum leaks are not good.

A ferreting blood test tests for the levels of ferreting in the blood. Ferreting is an iron storing protein, and high levels of this protein can be indicative of an iron storing disorder in the body.
