High nox fail smog test any remedies? 99


NOX is created when the internal combustion temperature gets to high.The egr system uses burnt exhaust gases to line to cylinder walls.The purpose of this is decrease internal combustion temperature therefore reducing the amount of NOX created.Would look to a possible egr malfunction usually they will trigger the check engine light but not always.The 4.3L has been known to have issues with carbon buil up in the egr and the egr pintle not open and closing properly.

1992 dodge stealth failed smog test with high NOx reading at idle. passed perfect at high rpm , failed at idle. hat causes a high NOx reading?


NOX is produced when cylinder temperatures exceed 2500 f.
Your vehicle has 2 ways to directly reduce NOX, EGR system, and catalytic converter, and also the cooling system indirectly.
Take a look at the EGR system, vacuum lines, pipes, and make sure the diaphragm moves. Disconnect the vacuum line, then push on the diaphragm and plug the hole (from vacuum line) when you release the diaphragm there should be vacuum. Also you may want to take it out and give the EGR passages and EGR valve a good cleaning, with some type of carbon cleaner like carb cleaner.

Having a problem passing a smog test on 1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V


NOX is produced when cylinder temperatures exceed 2500 deg. The systems in place to reduce NOX are EGR and the catalytic converter.
If the number is only slightly higher than avg then I would suggest the EGR, make sure that any vacuum lines are attached and that the diaphragm moves freely, be sure not to damage the rubber inside the EGR.
Retake smog test, if numbers still out of range replace the cat.

Failed smog


We had to have the calatic converter replaced. We did this after doing an oil change, air filter change, and new spark plugs and still hadn't passed smog. After changing the calatic converter it passed smog with scores of 25.

My ''nox'' emissions was to high on smog test?


Usually a high NOx reading on gasoline vehicles is caused by a bad catalytic converter on your exhaust. I would suggest having this checked out before you try the test again. Hope this helps.
