Service engine light on-won't pass smog test

You will need to plug in a OBD reader first and run a diagnostic check. Without this we can only guess at what may or may not be wrong with it.

2000 lincoln town car wont pass smog yet it is running clean. mechanic states he has to checkodes? is this expensive and what could be wrong any suggestions?

Checking codes is an Industry standard description for checking the PCM (engine computer) for DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes). Retrieving codes from the PCM is not hard to do at all, but a code reader or scanner is required to do so. The hard part in diagnosing the trouble code is finding the exact cause, and depending on the cause, it can be expensive or possible a simple fix.

My 2000 Lincoln town car has been diagnosed as requiring 02 sensor replacement. Car has 220,000 kilometres on it. Can I continue to drive without replacing the sensor?

Yes you can still drive it. However your gas mileage will drop . Also it wont pass the smog/ emissions test if your state requires one.

Prerunner wont pass smog due to engine service light

Not positive on this so consider only. The o2 sensor is what actually tells everything else what is going on with emmission and everything else adjusts to what info it relays. The o2 is also subjected to extreme temps and cooling cycles. So, instead of spending money on no answer diagnostism give replacement of o3 sensor so consideratio. If you choose to replace, wd40 and let exhaust cool down. Good Luck.

Guru, your a knight in shining armor! Thanks Tons ps just found out the Lincoln had recently develpoed a entermitant(sp) Check Engine light Is that a problem, I didnt think you could pass smog with...

No if the check engine light is on it won't pass. You will need to have it scanned to find out why the light is on. It is likely for an Egr position sensor.

Check engine light goes on and off.

i really cant tell you if it will pass the smog test or not because the check engine light could be on because of a faulty Catalytic converter
