Question about 1985 Porsche 944

1 Answer

Codes, & Scanner.

No I do not have a scanner. I took my car to a smog check station a pre-check was don on the car and I was told that there was no point on doing a full check since the tech saw that it would not pass it. All I saw was that the CO & O2 was below 0.08, but at iddle the HCL whent up to 160 ppm and was told that it should be below 100 I think he said at about 99 or below.

It is running too lean, there is a aluminium cap on the side of the airflow meter, drill a hole in it, pop it out, insert the right allen wrench, turn clockwise to richen it up at idle just a little bit.

2001 chevrolet tahoe secondary air system not working cant pass smog all I did was replace battery before getting it smog


Disconnecting the battery resets the PCM - engine computer ,an the emission monitors . A drive cycle has to be done to get the monitors to run an hopefully set. That's all you need to do is drive it for few days of different driving conditions - city , highway ,from cold start . google GM drive cycle . OBD Monitor Not Ready

GMC Jimmy wont power smog device to run smog check - blown fuse?


What they are talking about is the scanner to read codes in the computer.
The scanner connects to a port under the steering column.
I think the power comes from the cig lighter circuit.
You may have to check your owners manual to find out which fuse is for the lighter.

Insufficient data from O2 sensor for smog


To review - - after you disconnect the battery you need to drive the vehicle at highway speed for 20 - 50 miles to allow the computer to "re-learn" the data parameters. This means getting the engine up to operating temp and speeds of at least 50 mph.
If the engine does not reach operating temp some of the sensors will not be active yet.

2006 hyundai elantra obd won't communicate with smog check station


Just to clear things up, having the monitors ready has nothing do to with OBD Communications. Ready or not, it will communicate. The original issue here was a station with a bad scanner. she did the right thing trying somewhere else and following up to get her $ back.

2002 chrysler voyager check engine light came on took van to dealership they told us it was the hoses. We bought brand new hoses all three and changed them. The light wont go off it still says that the...


On these vans the light will stay on untill it is reset. You need a OBD 2 scanner to reset it. You can take it to the dealer and have them do it but they will probably charge you like $130. The best thing for you to do is check with an auto parts store. They normally have a scanner on hand and will turn it off for you free of charge. Advance and Autozone I know pretty much have a scanner at every store.
