Tune up will not stop oil leak. Find out where leak is and fix it. I never heard of oil leak being part of an inspection? Let me guess...You're in California?

My 1996 Nissan Altima has had the Oxygen sensors and EGR valve replaced. It needs to pass emmissions test but evan after driving it fo rover 500 miles the The ECM will not reset eventhoughtthe fault codes...


Putting miles on them wont reset the computer. It is how many times you cycle the key on and off. And they will only reset if the problem was fixed. I don't know how many times yours has to be cycled, but some vehicles are up to 100 times. Hope this helps.

Honda passport 1994 4wh drive cant pass smog test. i change the catalytic converter, change the egr valve, 02 head sensor and major tune up, spark plugs, wires are all change still cant pass smog. i passed...


Here are a few things to look at:
Have you replaced the air filter? Have a compression test done on the engine, could possibly be a leaking vale. If any vacuum hoses have been removed from the engine they will have to be re-installed. Solid Lifters out of adjustment can cause incomplete combustion. Make sure engine is reaching proper operating temperature (eg. thermostat). Do not use low grade (octane) fuel for test.
Clean oil, tire pressure, brake drag?, every little thing counts.

Got 5 emmission done,it won't pass


you will need to find a shop that does emission repairs. maybe not the guy that inspected and failed it. If a shop has the machine, they should have someone there that knows how to fix your car.

MY 1992 HONDA ACCORD WON'T PASS THE EMISSIONS TEST


if it's slightly above the limit.. you could try putting in premium gas or an octane additive as that will lower your emissions slightly..

98 honda accord wont start took starter to shop which passed the test. Need to know what other problem it could be...key turns all the way lights, radio all that comes on but wont start?


check your starter relay. if the starter passed the test at the shop check to see if you are getting signal to your solenoid on the starter it shoul be the little post when you turn the key to the crank position, check to see if you have power at the big post which comes from your battery, check your grounds. check your fuses see if you have a crank fuse or an ignition fuse.

PO 171 fuel system to lean to bank 1 97 Honda Accord 165k miles


Yes. I would clean the engine with engine cleaner and then watch for any oul leaks. For you to use that much oil there would be a major leak. If no leaks check to see if blue smohe is coming out you tailpipe. If not keep an eye on is I this it will be fine if none of these things are wrong. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.
