Nothing . have a compression test done on the engine to determine the condition. have n exhaust test done to get the exhaust emissions reading to determine where the faults lay . Check the condition of the charcoal canister.

CEL P0431 but passed smog emissions in CA - how can I pass emissions if the CAT is damaged? Could it be another issue?


Maybe not your answer, but it is related: Before going to have your car smogged, check your gas cap. Check the condition of the gasket, or o-ring, inside the gas cap. If is already drying out, full of cracks, get a new one. It will not pass the visual inspection. The smog technician, salesman, will try to sell you a new one for $15 when you could get it for $8 at your local auto-parts store. The technician will tell you that if you do not get it right there and then, he will have to fail your car on the visual test and you will have to comeback to have your car re-smogged again.
The cap might still be doing an OK job of sealing the tank, but it won't pass the Visual, especially if the tech wants to sell you a cap. You can tell if the cap is doing its job if you hear a hissing sound whenever you open the gas cap after running the engine fro a while. If it is not providing a good seal, then you might get a check engine light with a code about a failure in the evaporative system.
Just a little thing to check before you go and put yourself at the mercy of the smog tech.
For $15 you could get a locking gas cap, which might be a necessity now with gasoline prices being what they are, now.

My 2000 Mazda millenia s just failed the smog test do to a malfunction indicator light what do I do


Before you re-test (smog test) ___ I added 3 bottles of injector cleaner in a quarter tank of gas. PASSED!!! Also you can go to a service station and ask them to clean up your injectors; or change the injectors if they are fouled.

Hole in the smog line that leads across the gas tank.


You should be able to put a piece of rubber fuel line over the section with a hole, clamp both ends. If it's hard to get to, run a long piece of rubber fuel line (inside diameter big enough to fit over smog line), cut the original smog line, attach new rubber fuel line over cut section, wiggle it over the tank to other side where you can cut original line again, and attach both ends with hose clamps. Let me know how it goes, it should work, you can even go around the tank front or back, just make sure you use zip ties or something to keep the hose from hanging down.

Fuel problem


I would change the fuel filter for starters. Then I would change the fuel pump as it seems that you do not have any fuel pressure. The pump diaphram may have failed and should be replaced.

their is a plunger in your tank just like the plunger or float in your toilet, if your car wont pass smog then yes check with your mech you might need a new evaporative canister or maybe a line in/out is pluged if your tank still wont register correctly my first comment would be in order to replace
