CRC makes the 'guaranteed to pass emissions' which you must follow directions-add to full gas tank, run for certain amount of time, etc.before testing. If you were close to passing emissions, it could help, I used it and my test #;s were close, and I passed, HOWEVER, since you are missing one cat, I don't think the guarantee is valid, nor do I think it would work. In my state they visually check for cats, and if you don't have one, FAIL. You can find generic cats on the internet for a good price, of course then you have the job of installing it. As far as the gas for free, water to gas, stay away, save your money, that scam has been around for a long time. Good luck!

My 1999 kia sephia wont pass smog test

You will need to get it scanned and get the codes for the problem. If it failed the test due to emissions I would almost guarantee it will be your oxygen sensor or cat

1993 Grand Jeep Cherokee has fluctuating High emissions

everthing effects the reading. pedal position, rpm load engine temp. air temp. all that stuff you added was just a waste of time and money. What you should of done wa diagnosed it correctly so your not cheating an emission test. Since barley failed the first time I would of recommended a tunup if not done in 40,000 miles. I would have looked at the scanner data to see if the inputs were correct. Iwould have serviced the oil if its been awhile. If everything checked out i would of recommended a catalytic converter. But there are 3 test to determine if the cat is dead we do first. If your car was barley failing and you needed a tunup and the cat was still good the need for a tuneup could toast the cat within a couple weeks.

1987 bronco emmisions

that depends on what state you live in and what they require. i assume you must have to go a an old style drive on dynomometer ?. if so and the bronco is carberated. make sure you have at least 1 good converter .also make sure the fresh air smogg pump is working correctly. be sure the timming is not set too high as that will raise the hydrocarbons. than keep your fingers crossed.
good luck chris

1997 tsi awd wont pass emissions

Very well could be, if it will not pass due to a trouble code. If it is the actual emmissions that are tested and then failed due to the CO2 emmisions then it could be a myriad of problems.
