Hi seanware25 dont know the rules where you are? welded pulleys are not acceptable from a safety standpoint or to pass an inspection, head to the auto wreckers and grab another one, easy fix hope this helps,good luck to you

    seanware25, hey buddy this is the fan belt pulley right, that attaches to the water pump correct? now is the pulley itself welded or is the pulley welded to the water pump shaft? if it is welded directly to the shaft you may have to replace the water pump as well this is not a big deal though,get back to me and let me know ok, I cant imagine someone welding this to the shaft,don't worry we'll fix you up

Won't pass smog when it should...

Just because the car seems to run well, does not mean the emissions are within spec. For example, you could be running a little rich and the car will start and run great, but the exhaust is not within code.
What you can do is take it to a "smog shop", that is a repair shop with the proper equipment to diagnose the problem. If the testing is simply the reading of the on board computer codes, then most any place can read those, but you need an experinced mech to know what to do about it. May need an exhaust gas analyzer to physically sample and analyse the gasses. For the actual test, as long as the computer says all is fine, usually, you're good to go.
If the computer looses power any saved run data will be lost and must be re-accumulated to pass the smog test. A few hours to a day is usually enough run time to accumulate enough data.

Trying to figure out what a certain part in the motor I have. Car runs and all but this item is siezed and would like to replace if necessary. It is above the AC Compressor in my 4.2L I-6 XJ6, 1986

Its most likely the smog pump or air pump same thing, alot of people used to disconnect it or when the belt breaks or it siezed up they would not replace it until it had to be smogged.It has to be hooked up and working to pass smog.

What is involved in replacing an idler pulley located just below the alternator on a '93 Dodge Dynasty? The welded bolt on the pulley broke for some reason.

Just gotta get yourself a new pulley. Not very hard to replace- you may have to remove alternator and belt first

Need new air conditioning compressor and pulley/bearing

Luckily they aren't as exensive as you think. Look at places like Autozone, they even have re-built ones. The actual bearing can't be replaced, need to replace the whole thing. Let me take that back, it can be done, but is very difficult, and involves cutting welds and re-welding. I've only seen one person actually replace the bearing itself.

My CE light is on. The code is PO420. It is a 2002 Corolla. Smog is due. Two years ago, the same thing happened. I bought a scanner, cleared the light. Took it to smog. Passed. But this year, I cleared...

The P0420 is for the catalyric converter, you'll have to have it replaced. It will fail the test as long as the light is on. Clearing the code information also clears the monitor infor, to pass the monitors required you'll have to put some miles on it in both city and highway driving, not all monitors may be required so check with your local smog station which ones have to pass.

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.
