Question about Nissan Pickup
Where do you live? Some locations (states/provinces, counties/parishes, and cities provide a waiver for vehicles older than 25 years. Check out your area's regulations. You may be able to avoid the emissions test completely. Good luck.

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.

NOX is produced when cylinder temperatures exceed 2500 f.
Your vehicle has 2 ways to directly reduce NOX, EGR system, and catalytic converter, and also the cooling system indirectly.
Take a look at the EGR system, vacuum lines, pipes, and make sure the diaphragm moves. Disconnect the vacuum line, then push on the diaphragm and plug the hole (from vacuum line) when you release the diaphragm there should be vacuum. Also you may want to take it out and give the EGR passages and EGR valve a good cleaning, with some type of carbon cleaner like carb cleaner.

NOX is created when the internal combustion temperature gets to high.The egr system uses burnt exhaust gases to line to cylinder walls.The purpose of this is decrease internal combustion temperature therefore reducing the amount of NOX created.Would look to a possible egr malfunction usually they will trigger the check engine light but not always.The 4.3L has been known to have issues with carbon buil up in the egr and the egr pintle not open and closing properly.
