How can one disable (or turn off) the VSC traction control while on 2WD mode so that one can do a Smog Check?

The smog center should know what to do, call the air resources board and ask for help getting it smogged. I am a former smog tech from calif and i know thios for sure.

The smog pump has plumbing coming off of it which some is made of metal. The acids in the smog that is release through it eats away the metal in time causing leaks that will cause this noise

I have a 1989 caddy sedan deville. The smog pump seized up and froze. I need to remove this pump. How long of a job is this and can I gut the insides of the pump out and replace it as just an idler pulley?...

Replace the pump as it does other things than just pump air into the exhaust. I helps in cold starting and keeps the engine from backfiring during deceleration. You can cause the converter to fail also. I have a service manual and it tells you to first loosen the pulley bolts on the pump first then remove the belt and pulley. Remove inlet hose and outlet hose then the mounting bolts .

Squealing Smog Control Belt in Humid Climate

I will list some of my experiences with similar problems.

V-belt quality and grade vary a lot and I do mean a lot. Belts can take a set from sitting--anybody with a table saw will attest to this. I would try a new belt first after finding a good parts man. A good alternator shop (rare today) can help here. The smog pump belt is an easy one to change. Try the cheap stuff first.

Smog pumps in my experience do not need a lot of power, especially at idle, but I have had bearing and pump failure on several wipe out a belt. Pull the belt and spin the smog pump by hand.

Belts can glaze and it is not necessarily noticeable. Stamped-steel pulleys polish smooth and won't transmit the power needed. Pulleys can also wear in some strange shapes so a new belt does not fit properly. See if an alternator shop has a cast iron pulley for the alternator. Cast iron does not polish smooth and also wears off any glaze from the belt surfaces. The crank pulleys are stamped-steel but are larger in diameter with a longer wrap angle so slippage is not a problem there.

In my poor days I tried sanding the belts and pulleys to remove the glaze. Too much work and it was only temporary.

I have used a cast iron pulley on a 110 amp alternator with a winch load. A stamped-steel pulley would just smoke the belt when under load (winch drew 225 amps total!). My truck is 70 amp and that is the biggest alternator Ford has with a V-belt that I know of.

I considered removing my smog pump and associated hardware. My experience has been to leave everything intact unless I can replace everything with an earlier, non-smog engine. Doing everything piecemeal has just caused other problems.

Hope this helps.
