It could take more driving always make sure you have between 1/4 -3/4 tank or monitors cant run has anyone checked to make sure the EGR is functioning? Not just the valve but the EGR system?

Hi howard lee
Did you disconnect the battery some time before the smog test? Did the smog inspector say he got a "system not ready", EGR testing not complete? If so drive it for another week or so and retest it.

The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

Have the charging system tested, it sounds like the battery went dead on you from a charging system failure. Charge the battery up enough to get to a local Autozone, Sam's club or O'reilly auto parts for the testing, it is free .
