In 1996 the emission warranty was extended from 5/50,000 to 8/80,000 & the number of covered parts was reduced by at least 50%. The "CAR" lobbies won out over the "GREEN" lobbies!!
In most cases the 8/80k covers only the computer & catalyst. See your "limited warranty" book for exact coverage on your car.
