SOURCE: Jetta failing smog due to non communication with OBD - Suggestions?

the no data error can be contributed to a bad interface cable or the scaqn tool was configured wrong and therfore could not connect to the ecm. I would recommend having a scan done again by a certiefied volkswagon tech chances are the mechanics used the wrong adapter cable or reader card. your smog problem could be that your evap canister is clogged therfore gives a bad reading.unfortunately you have to have a scan done but try an independant small shop that delas exclusively with foreign cars such as porche andd mercedez. the will have the correct scan tool and will be much cheaper than a dealership. your cost should be no more than 50 dollars US ... please rate this. thanks

Working on one right now and hooked it up with a Snap On Solus scanner - It gives P0135 for 0/2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1. Check the 0/'2 sensor function and replace as necessary

SOURCE: Prerunner wont pass smog due to engine service light

Not positive on this so consider only. The o2 sensor is what actually tells everything else what is going on with emmission and everything else adjusts to what info it relays. The o2 is also subjected to extreme temps and cooling cycles. So, instead of spending money on no answer diagnostism give replacement of o3 sensor so consideratio. If you choose to replace, wd40 and let exhaust cool down. Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1999 chevy tahoe. check engine

The vehicle need to be timed.If you had a intake done this should have been done at that time.you will need a scan tool to time this vehicle as there is no timing marks and the computer uses the cam sensor in the Distributor to time the vehicle.IT is locaqted in the scan tool under cam ******.you must rev the vehicle once for the computer to detect a timing change.every time you adjust the distributor you must rev the vehicle once.(you only need to get to 1500 rpm for this to occur).

SOURCE: My 1994 Ford Ranger didn't pass smog. The "check

I had the same issue with mine. Unscrew your instrument panel and pull it out as far as it will go. The lights are held in place from behind so you will need to slip your hand in and rotate the pastic clip that is fixed to the light to take it off. I never saw behind the panel but I heard it's fragile so be carefull. I replaced it with the ABS light (I already know my ABS doesn't work :P).

The check engine light wont come on.it wont pass the smog test to license it till it does.


It is highly likely, on a vehicle that age, that the bulb is simply burned out for the CHECK ENGINE light. (Should be a T5, if I recall.)
If not, you may need to replace the ECU with a rebuilt. Before doing so, check the light circuit to verify that someone didn't unplug it (common practice when unscrupulous people are trying to sell vehicles that won't pass smog due to engine problems).

Failed smog: P1334 code only (no P1230)


If this is a SAAB the DI cassette needs replacement. Easy fix but the part is high. Use only OEM part as the cheap stuff does not work. Plugs are under this unit so good time to replace them also.

Why can't I pass smog check engine light won't come on


The smog check requires a visual inspection of your check engine light. It has to come on for a bulb check at startup to make sure it's working. But, the light must go out after starting the engine(it cannot stay on after the engine starts during a smog check). If the check engine light fails either of these two tests, the vehicle will fail the smog check inspection.
You need to have the cause of your inoperative check engine light diagnosed and repaired.

97 CAVALIER (Z24) FAILED SMOG TEST


No the water pump will not affect the smog test. You probably failed the idle?
Usually with this age of vehicle you can replace the o2 (oxygen) sensor and it will pass. Cleaning the MAF if it has one cant hurt either if you do it right.

1996 Nissan Maxima GXE Fail Smog Check Due To ECM System Failure


There is no way to fix this issue according to my Nissan Dealer Service Manager. The monitors will not run and therefore the vehicle will not pass smog. If you need assistance from California's SMOG authority they are called "The Referee" and you can call them at 1-800-622-7733.
